Pier 1 Cookies Fragrance Candle Collection

Candles are a classic fragrance product that have been used for centuries to create ambiance and mood. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and scents, making them a versatile option for any home. When selecting candles, it's important to consider the desired setting and use they will be in.

Candles for Decor and Scent 

Pillar candles are a versatile and elegant addition to any home. They can be used in a variety of settings, from the bedroom to the living room. Placing pillar candles on a decorative tray on a coffee table or on a mantel can create an inviting and cozy atmosphere. They can also be used as centerpieces for special occasions or events, such as weddings or dinner parties. With their long burn time, pillar candles are ideal for use during extended periods, making them perfect for setting the mood during a relaxing bubble bath.

Three-wick candles are a great option for larger rooms, as they provide a strong fragrance and a larger flame. These candles are ideal for use in open-concept living areas, dining rooms, or even outdoor settings. Three-wick candles can be used as a focal point in a room and work well as centerpieces on a dining table or coffee table. They also make great gifts for holidays or special occasions, as their unique shape and strong fragrance make them stand out.

Candles in glass containers are a popular choice for adding a touch of elegance to any room. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and their decorative containers can be repurposed after the candle has burned down. Glass container candles are ideal for use in the bathroom, providing a relaxing and invigorating scent that can help to soothe the mind and body. They can also be placed on a countertop or island in the kitchen to help neutralize cooking odors and create a fresh and welcoming environment.

To use candles effectively, place them in areas where you spend the most time, such as your living room, bedroom, or bathroom. When lighting candles, be sure to trim the wick to ¼ inch to ensure a clean, even burn. And always remember to never leave candles unattended.

Reed Diffusers

Default Title

Diffusers are another popular fragrance product that use essential oils to infuse a space with fragrance. They work by using a reed or other porous material to draw oil up from the container and release it into the air. Diffusers are a great option for those who want a constant, subtle scent that doesn't require an open flame.

When selecting a diffuser, be sure to consider the quality of the essential oils used. Look for pure, natural oils that are free from synthetic fragrances or other additives. To use a diffuser effectively, place it in a well-ventilated area where there's plenty of airflow. And be sure to flip the reeds every few days to ensure a consistent scent.

Room Sprays

Default Title

Room sprays are a quick and easy way to add fragrance to a space. They come in a variety of scents and can be used to freshen up a room quickly. Room sprays are a great option for those who want a burst of fragrance without the commitment of a candle or diffuser.

When using room sprays, be sure to spray them away from your face and eyes. Always spray in a well-ventilated area to avoid inhaling too much of the fragrance, and avoid spraying on surfaces.
