Candle Fragrance and Design Trends for 2016

Gifts and Decorative Accessories recently released a publication called “Candle Talk” in which they interviewed candle manufacturers and released trend reports.

Among the most popular scents forecasted for 2016 are sweet citrus, hints of floral, earthy spices and vanilla-based fragranced candles. In addition, more masculine scented candles are making a stronger presence this year. Lemon verbena candles, candles with notes of pumpkin spice and citrus are hot year round. In the Spring / Fall, popular candle fragrances included citrus notes like orange and mango.

Salacia Salts carries two candles that carry beautiful, uplifting citrus notes including Citrus & Sunrays and Georgia Peach. Citrus & Sunrays was inspired by Salacia’s co-founders home state of Florida and their love and memories of picking citrus and eating it fresh off the vine. Citrus & Sunrays is bright ruby red grapefruit bursting with juicy orange. This candle fragrance is bright and uplifting.



Georgia Peach is a smooth, lively green candle with top notes balanced with sweet peach. The candles are hand-poured in the United States – made in the South, with the highest quality soy wax blends and even burn times of over 45 hours.


Customers are looking for scents that evoke nature and worldly flavors. Salacia’s other two candles take the customer to distinct places in the South. Southern-Made, Southern-inspired, as our slogan goes, matches perfectly with our cotton field inspired Seersucker and the coastline scents of the sea in our Shoreline candle.


The Seersucker candle fragrance carries light clean notes of freshly plucked cotton and warm summer days. Shoreline Signature Candle is an earthy musk scent with notes of sun-dried driftwood, sea salt and kelp. This candle evokes the memories of long days on the beach with salty air glimmering from a high sun. It’s a definite pick of beach bums and seashore lovers. It’s a great balance of masculine and feminine and one of our top sellers of 2016 to date.

Future candle trends seem to be going towards more high-end candles, packaged in unique stand out boxes. A packaged candle makes a great gift too. The box also provides the opportunity to share a brand story or instructions for candle use. Each Salacia Salts candle includes a bi-fold card that fits neatly on the side of the box with terms and instructions for “Trim Me. Burn Me. Clean Me. ”
