Summer Candles That Smell like Fun in the Sun

This candle gift set may be your solution.

Scent can be incredibly subjective, but there’s no denying that summer candles smell like fun in the sun!

From notes of the juicy, hydrating fruits in season to the vacations (and backyard staycations) you might have, candles that smell like summer can remind you of fun-in-the-sun summer days.

In fact, scientific studies show that your sense of smell may trigger your memory better than your sense of sight!

So if you really want to invoke summer in any indoor space, scented summer candles are the way to go.

Spoken Flames partnered with masters in scent development (also known as perfumers) to create three candles that smell like summer. One of our summer scents was even selected as one of the “Best Summer Candles” by leading home décor magazine, House Beautiful.

Here are three unique summer candles with our perfumers at Spoken Flames.


Here’s 5 reasons why a candle gift set makes the perfect gift:

3 Unique Summer Candles

1. Good Summer Vibes Candle

Bonus! Laugh Out Loud (LOL) Candle

Candles that smell like summer

This scented summer candle is a surprise bonus to our list and celebrates the best of both seasons—spring and summer. In fact, our LOL Candle was named ”Best of” by Apartment Therapy!

“Both fruity and comforting,” “very mango,” says editor Tara Belluci of our hybrid spring and summer candle.

Think sweet notes of mango and green coconut mingling with fresh lavender, linen, and white woods. These notes were composed to emulate the joyfully soothing sound of a laugh out loud.

From beach days to carnivals to neighboring summer parties, summer is the season to hear the laughter of others and those you love.

Those experiences inspired our LOL Candle, rounding out our top summer candles that smell like summer fun in the sun!

Aaah, summer. Where the heat may be relentless, and a glass of ice cold water tastes divine. School is out. Summer Friday’s are in. And just opening our windows and lighting summer candles bring a special joy that only summer can bring.

Start your summer day by activating the audible mantra on our summer candles, and be sure to share those good summer vibes wherever you go!

Cheers to a great summer. And more specifically, great-smelling summer candles 😉

6. Candles can help increase focus in a work from home environment

The rise in WFH and remote work means our workspaces are full of comforts—and distractions. But why would anyone light a candle at their work desk? To keep those distractions at bay. From chatty co-workers (albeit via Slack) to social media, candles are a thoughtful corporate gift that can help us focus and create space for us to do our best work.

Consider it a productivity hack. 💡

The presence of a candle flame can set a calming mood. Wooden wick candles in particular have a unique soft-crackling sound, which can serve as natural and relaxing ambient sound in one’s space. Plus, select scent profiles, like citrus, woody or a floral scent of a scented candle can influence physiological responses that help keep the mind on track.

7. Candles can be an environmentally responsible gift choice

First, it‘s a candle, next it’s their favorite whiskey glass. 🥃

Depending on the candle’s vessel, most candle jars can be upcycled after the burn cycle of the candle. It can be used as storage, glassware and more, so you can feel good knowing that your gift will keep on giving! And your candle gift (once upcycled) can be a pleasant reminder, if not a conversation piece in their home, of your thoughtfulness.

A candle gift set solves my gifting needs—but wait! I don’t know what candle scent they may like 😟

Bonus tip: How to pick a candle scent for a gift

So a candle gift set meets your needs, but you’re not sure what scents they like 😟 Pro tip: consider an unscented candle or a gift set that offers a variety of scents.
