An unmistakable scent that dominates the holidays season, though rarely you will find cinnamon as a sole fragrance in a candle.

In contrast with the other two warm fragrance oils for candles we have the sunny Orange. Its acidic nature makes it ideal as an odor eliminator and, though it too is rarely present as an independent fragrance, it can act as the ideal introduction for that fresh kick on the top accords for many fragrances. Speaking of oranges, you should really check out our citrus fragrances collection. All the tangy boys are there!
