a fragrant beginning

Welcome to my blog! Thank you for joining me on this fragrant journey. As the summer days are getting shorter and the evenings get longer I'm thinking more about candles, burning citrus candles to feel cooler on hot days, seaside-scented candles to recall days spent at the beach, and burning cozier scents in the evenings. Lately I've been experimenting on scent combinations for our holiday candle, one that will be warming, welcoming, and make home smell festive and bright. Slightly difficult to envision when it's over 100˚ outside. And as much as I love summer, these hot lazy days in the pool, and endless ice cream, I am looking forward to dark, snowy winter days full of candlelight. What favorite scents are you looking forward to indulging in this fall and winter? I'm also looking forward to your thoughts, comments, and suggestions - please feel free to write me anytime at kate@elysiumfragrances.com or through our contact form. Hope you enjoy these last few summer weekends soaking up the sunshine!
