Candle making is a very seasonal business so you need to be sure you have fragrances available according to season and what holidays are coming up. Valentines Day is just around the corner. Are you ready? Whether you are a hobbyist or run a business, here are some popular Valentines Day fragrance ideas to use for your soy candles. Now is also a great time to give a discount on your extra Christmas fragrances as well.
Valentines Day is a time of flowers, chocolates and romance, so you’ll want to have those types of fragrances available to your customers, or if you are a hobbyist and you are just making your candles as gifts or just for yourself.
Here is a list of my favorite Valentines fragrance oils for soy candles, and then I’ll list some links to other sites that have some great ideas as well.
- Love Spell (Victoria Secret type)
- Chocolate Covered Cherries ( I made this as a chunk candle using red “wild cherry” scented chunks and a brown chocolate scented overpour) But you can also just buy the fragrance if you like.
- Chocolate Covered Strawberries (you can make these chunk candles as well or just buy the fragrance oil)
- Vanilla Rose (I just mixed Vanilla fragrance oil and Rose fragrance oil together)
- Floral Bouquet
- White Tea and Ginger
- Japanese Cherry Blossom (popular Bath and Body Works fragrance)
- Sweet Pea (Popular Bath and Body Works fragrance)
Here are some links to sites that have lists of Valentines Day fragrance oils:
LoneStar Candle Supplies Pinterest page They also have some valentines candle craft ideas as well
“Most Loved” list of Bath and Body Works fragrances under their Valentines Day Gifts section. You can find probably all of these as fragrance oils for candles as well. You can find the equivalent of these fragrances mainly at Wholesale Supplies Plus: Japanese Cherry Blossom, Sweet Pea, Twilight Woods, Paris Amour, Forever Red
I searched for the above fragrance oils at some other suppliers, but, even though some of them had the same name, the description of the fragrance was not the same, so make sure to look at that as well. Wholesale Supplies Plus and Candlewic state that they are comparable to the Bath and Body Works fragrance.
You can also check out Victorias Secret Valentines Day Fragrances and try and find equivalents to those as well. For example, you can find the Bombshell (Type) fragrance oil at The Flaming Candle.
Here’s how to find the equivalent fragrance oil: Just type in the fragrance name into Google search and then “fragrance oil” at the end (example: Bombshell fragrance oil) and that should pull up some suppliers that carry it, if any.

What is one thing you would like to accomplish this year with your candle making?
I would like to expand my business and maybe get a website. I have it on facebook now. I also want to try to keep making great soy candles without frosting. And I would like to find a black 8 oz glass container for my candles.

For 2016 my goals are to update my Etsy site more often. I take lots of pictures of my candles but don’t have the time to update on line. I also do a lot of smaller craft shows and I would love to expand to larger shows. I have my candles in 1 store and 1 consignment shop. I would also like to expand into other shops so I don’t have to do as many shows.
Candlescience.com has black glass containers. Not sure of the size though but they are nice.
