Candles of course can create certain moods. They are used as a regular part of church services and are used in religious ceremonies and create a spiritual mood. They are used at dinner tables to create a romantic atmosphere. Some people take a bubble bath at night and use only the soft light of a candle to create a relaxing atmosphere. But if you add scent to a candle it will enhance the mood or completely change it to another mood.
The sense of smell is hooked up to the limbic system of the brain which is a very primitive level of the brain and has to do with emotions. So different fragrances can bring out different emotions. Have you ever smelled a perfume on a woman (or cologne on a man) and it reminded you of an old girlfriend because she used to wear that same perfume. Remember how it bought back those same emotions you had with that girlfriend. That's the sense of smell affecting the limbic system of the brain and bringing on that emotion.

There are some naturally decorated candles like the beeswax candles and the bayberry candles. They both have very pleasant scents to them. But the problem with them is you are stuck with only the one scent that that particular wax provides.
You can get other waxes like paraffin wax or soy wax or gel for gel candles and add the particular scent you want and there are many scents on the market to choose from. In fact there are actually hundreds of scents to choose from. So how do you know which on you like in the beginning?
Have you ever gotten an ice cream cone with two scoops each scoop a different flavor? You eat the top scoop and it of course is delicious and then you hit the second scoop and you immediately know which of the two flavors you like. You make a mental note and the next time you get the flavor you like the best and maybe you will get a second scoop of a different flavor and test it again. Occasionally you will have your top flavors in order of your preference. So it's all about testing one flavor with a second flavor.
So if you want to know how to make decorated candles with your favorite scent it's the same way. In the beginning you start out by making small candles to test the different scents and you do it the same way as you did with the ice cream. You start with two small candles both with a different scent and compare them. You can actually use 3 and even 4 but after that it might get a little confusing. You light one candle for an hour and then light the other candle for an hour and you will have your preference. Then you get another scent and test and so on. You will ever get a scent that makes you feel great.
