6. To Get A Breath Of Fresh Air: Eucalyptus Rain from White Barn
One of the most welcome changes that comes with spring is the refreshment of a rain shower that leaves the air feeling clear and fresh.

It really does capture the cleansing smell of the air after a heavy rain; if you’re looking for a spring scent that is calming and not sweet or fruity you’ll love this candle.

Lavender is one of the all-time best scents for inviting relaxation and calm. Lavender Tea smells just like its name; a perfect, freshly brewed cup of tea with lavender buds. This mild but delicious scent will float through the room, perfect for afternoons and evenings when you need to wind down.
8. To Summon Spa Vibes: Love Candle from WEN by Chaz Dean
In the Love WEN candle, a delightful blend of tropical flowers provide the perfect escape.

You can’t have a spring scent roundup without including fresh oranges. The smell of citrus always summons visions of cleanliness and fresh starts, perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, or any other spaces where you need an energy switch or a mood boost. Brooklyn Candle Company’s Japanese Citrus combines all the boost of a citrus scent while deepening it with bergamot and jasmine, creating the effect of an escape to an orange orchard on a faraway mountain.

Vanilla Rosa from Paddywax is a really unique blend of scents; a swirling combination of spices combined with darker, musky undertones of sandalwood and patchouli create the effect of a sultry evening on the coast.

12. To Summon The Desert: Sandalwood Rose from PF Candle Co
Sandalwood Rose is a different kind of floral scent. It’s darker, dryer and has a muskiness to it that other rose scents don’t have, summoning up visions of a Southern California desert night. This dry floral is perfect if you’re looking to break from the usual flowery candles but still want a chance to stop and smell the roses.
13. To Take A Walk In The Wildflowers: Peony Bloom from DW Home
If your favorite part of spring is getting the chance to walk through a field of bright wildflowers, Peony Bloom is a great choice. It combines blends of soft but distinct blooms, helping to create a lovely bouquet of smells in your home.
