Here at TSM you know we love beautifully scented things, and with the weather
finally warming up, we couldn’t be more excited to head out into our gardens and plant some fragrant spring flowers! If you can relate, read on for our top flower picks that look and smell amazing. Or, if you are the type who enjoys a faux plant instead (hey, no judgment here!), check out the accompanying candle suggestions.
Their elegant, romantic look and warm, heady, and slightly sweet scent make roses a traditional favourite. Plant rose bushes in an area with plenty of light, good drainage, and sandier, nutrient-rich soil. Be sure to water regularly. Try one of our new Pure ROSE Soy Wax Candles to enjoy their scent indoors.
You can’t go wrong with some tall, proud stalks of lavender. Their delicate purple flowers look pretty and offer a soft, calming fragrance. Before you plant, remember that lavender enjoys full sun, minimal watering, and soil with a higher pH. For the candle version, try our new Pure LAVENDER Soy Wax Candle.
These flowers come in many colours and varieties, making them a staple in most gardens. Their scent profile is citrus and fruity with a hint of spice and rose. Plant them in an area with plenty of light and good drainage. Enjoy a light, sweet, and floral fragrance containing a hint of geranium with our EXHALE Essential Oil Candle.
Lily of the Valley
With delicate bell-shaped flowers and a fresh, green scent with a hint of jasmine, Lily of the Valley makes a beautiful addition to the cautious and responsible gardener. It requires special attention as it likes to spread and can be harmful to pets and humans if ingested. It grows best in partial shade or full shade. You can enjoy the scent of Lily of the Valley with our candle and wax melt collection.
Lastly, if you’re the ‘go big or go home’ type, why not invest in a lilac bush? They grow best in a spacious area with full sun and good drainage. Care for one of these beauties and you’ll enjoy its pink, purple, or white blooms alongside its distinctly strong, sweet, and heady scent. Our Lilac Breeze collection contains soy candles, wax melts, and scented sprays for all the lilac lovers out there.
