Romance Under candlelight. which candles to use?

Imagine this: a romantic evening without the soft glow of candles? It just doesn’t hit the right notes. Candles are like magic wands, weaving warmth and intimacy at the dinner table and all around the house.

When two lovebirds meet, it’s this delicate dance of tenderness and passion, wrapped in a bit of mystery. Candles aren’t just there for looks; they’re the unsung heroes in creating that dreamy vibe. Once those candles are doing their thing, casting that soft glow, it’s like emotions take center stage. A romantic evening just isn’t the same without that flicker of candlelight. It doesn’t matter how amazing the dinner or music is – without the right ambiance, something’s missing. Placing candles strategically, not just on the table but all around, adds that touch of mystery, syncing hearts and sparking passion. But here’s the secret sauce: picking the right candles, figuring out where to put them, and crafting those picture-perfect setups. That’s the key to nailing the perfect romantic vibe.

TYPES OF CANDLES For an enhanced romantic setting, focus on candles like:

  • Scented candles
  • Floating candles
  • Classic candles

A tip on candles: When selecting candles for a romantic evening, ensure they emit no harmful fumes, and their fragrance is pleasing.

An effortless way to adorn candlesticks is with flowers and beads.

Candles should seamlessly blend into the decor, accentuating the room’s interior and other elements like tablecloth, cutlery, and flowers. Therefore, choosing the right candle colors is vital. Neutral whites, passionate reds, and soft pinks are ideal for a romantic evening. Yet, this doesn’t mean avoiding other colors; it depends on the situation. Blues, golds, greens, and even black candles can perfectly complement the atmosphere of love and passion.


Scented candles are a popular choice for setting a romantic mood. Not only do they create a subtle and mysterious ambiance, but they also infuse the room with delightful fragrances. To achieve a cozy, candlelit setting for two, consider scents like:

  • Floral fragrances such as rose, peony, freesia, and jasmine for a uplifting and relaxing atmosphere.
  • Spicy scents like ylang-ylang, neroli, sandalwood, cinnamon, and patchouli for an energizing vibe.

Here’s a scented candle tip: Make sure both partners enjoy the fragrance to prevent any unpleasant associations.

Adding natural aphrodisiacs to scented candles can enhance the romantic experience. While you can mix candles with different scents, it’s important to ensure they complement each other. Alternatively, there are pre-made perfume compositions designed for specific occasions.
