What Fragrances are Associated with Spring?
When we think of Spring fragrances, we get classic notes of the sunny, pleasant, citrus scents of Bergamot, Lemon and Mandarin and romantic florals such as Lily of the Valley, Jasmine and Rose. Soothing garden scents such as Cherry Blossom, Hyacinth and Daffodils are sure to attract buzzing bees and noses whilst having a stroll through the garden.
Spring is also dominated by earthy fragrances especially that of the fresh, crisp green smell of a freshly cut lawn.
Which Spring Fragrance Should I Choose to Freshen my Home?
So, what type of home fragrance should you choose for Spring? Well, there are literally hundreds of amazing fragrances (more than 500 in our Fragrance Oil category!) so choosing the right scent may be appear daunting and slightly overwhelming for some.
You could even go as far as matching your chosen home fragrance with some rich, lathering soap using our beginner's soap making tutorial here, creating fun and easy bath bombs or trying out other bath & body products.
Whatever the product, here at Craftovator, the perfect Spring fragrance for you is just a click away.
How Can I Use Fragrance Oils?
Our fragrance oils are suitable for use in many products from home fragrance to skincare. The most popular home fragrance products on the market today are candles, wax melts, room sprays and reed diffusers so you really have a great selection to pick from.
Each product has its own individual level of fragrance throw and we believe that scents are so subjective. What you might find strong, another might find subtle and vice versa.
If you prefer a stronger burst of fragrance, opt for either a wax melt or room spray. For a lighter fragrance, we’d recommend a candle. If candles or wax melts aren’t for you, then a reed diffuser is the way forward. They’re a great way to fragrance your home with minimal fuss and are very low maintenance!
How Much Fragrance Oil Can I Use in My Products?
We would advise checking the ‘IFRA 49th Amendment’ document download on each fragrance oil page for safe usage levels, particularly if opting to make reed diffusers, room sprays or soap. We’ve listed the categories for the most popular products below to help you locate the maximum percentages easily.
- Reed Diffusers: category 10.A (recommended usage: 15% - 25%)
- Room Sprays: category 10.B (recommended usage: 3% - 5%)
- Candles/Wax Melts: category 12 (recommended usage: up to 10%)
- Soap: category 9 (recommended usage: 1% - 3%)
The percentages as per the above information are totally dependent on the maximum usage levels stated on the IFRA 49th Amendment document. If the percentage is higher than the recommended amount above, then you would only go up to the highest percentage we’ve stated and only providing your chosen base is suitable and can hold this amount of oil.
Whether you’re after a fresh, clean scent, a fruity medley, or a precious floral, we can help you decide with our Top 10 Most Popular Fragrances for Spring.
