Small and discreet, the candles are nevertheless an essential accessory to a successful decoration. As soon as night falls, their halos of warm light plunge the room into a soothing and relaxing atmosphere. But if their flames fascinate us throughout the year, candles are not used in the same way in winter and summer. Candles, instructions for use season by season!
In the spring, games of transparency and floral scents
When the days lengthen and the thermometer finally rises, the house alleviates winter accessories to make room for a lighter and more vegetal decor. The holiday candles that were lit at the beginning of the evening a few weeks ago are replaced by scented candles with floral scents that float in the air a delicate scent of hyacinth, roses, verbena or herbs cut.
On the mantelpiece or coffee table in the living room, the big wax candles are arranged to put tealight holders in glass or white porcelain.In the spring, the decor craves transparency, lightness and light! It’s also the moment to bring out its tealight candles to float in a large vase or a jar of glass yogurt: with an ivy leaf or a small cut flower on the balcony, the result is deliciously spring! br />
In summer, tealights to ensure the end of the night
In summer, the candles come out to illuminate the balcony and the garden for long evenings under the starry sky. It’s the season of candlelight, braziers and campfires on the beach. In the garden, we like to float candles in a zinc basin filled with flowers, we highlight an alley with a series of small candle holders, we hang a chandelier to a tree branch for a romantic dinner … C ‘ is also the time to make your own mosquito candles by floating a tealight candle in a jar of water with lemon eucalyptus essential oil, slices of lemon and a sprig of rosemary.
Inside, the scented candles dare the iodized scents, the odors of monoi and coconut, but also the scents of fig, tomato, jasmine … Beautiful gift ideas to offer to its guests, but also to slide in his suitcase to feel at home on vacation.

In autumn, candles to brighten the long evenings
From the first frost of autumn, the Hyddge trend returns to the front of the stage. In the purest Scandinavian tradition, we think cocooning, mellow plaids and candles galore! It’s time to fill up on candles to warm up the mood as the days get shorter. In the absence of a working fireplace, a corner dedicated to the magic of flames is created by accumulating five to ten candles of different sizes on a tray.
On the scent side, the scented candles of autumn smell good spices and cinnamon, bark and fire, amber, cedar and leather … With a cup of hot tea, a big pair of socks and a good book, for sure, candles help us to love autumn.

In winter, candles warm the decor
Winter, which begins with the longest night of the year, is the favorite season for candles.
