Unscented Candles

Benefits of Unscented Candles

A way to enjoy the ambiance without being overwhelmed by the scent.

At Picket&Rail, candles are not only about the scent but are in fact design objects; the slow mesmerizing burn creating a tranquil ambiance. We focus on the experience of natural light, the peace of simply watching the flickering of a flame and the shadows it throws. 

Why not scented? A large part of life is remembered by the olfactory; a cup of freshly brewed coffee, a glass of wine, good food with friends. Candlelight can enhance and even create these moments, but you don't necessarily want to add scent to that mix.

In many ways taste is all about scent: you often smell food before you taste it, creating a mood and anticipation for what is to come; cookies baking, coffee brewing. And vice versa, you inadvertently taste what you smell. As such, a large part of the enjoyment of food, or beverages, is the aromas they create.

While a scented candle can be a lovely addition to a bathroom or bedroom, artificial scents can disrupt the pleasure of tasting the full-bodied flavours of food and drinks. For the same intimate setting, an unscented candle will tick all the boxes to create an everlasting impression.
