  1. For the wellness warrior- This is for those who are passionate about everything wellness, enjoy journaling, meditation and take self care very seriously. The wellness warrior understands the importance of grounding and will cherish their daily rituals. To aid in daily practice of self care, we recommend a candle with healing, botanical notes with a fresh and cleansing aroma. Top favourite notes in this category are lavender, eucalyptus, lemongrass verbena. One of our top sellers and all time favourite, Peace Lives Within has a soothing and healing aroma of lavender & clary sage. We also recommend Namaste candle for its fresh and healing notes, as well as Eucalyptus & Jasmine candle.

  2. For the outdoors enthusiast- this is for nature lovers out there! We recommend choosing fresh, earthy and not overly sweet notes such as North Bound which is an all time favourite for earthy, woody fragrance. Inspired by the Northern Pines, this candle was created to bring the outdoors into each home. Another great, outdoorsy scent is Cabin Fever with notes of cedarwood, citrus and eucalyptus. Ozone floral top notes with citrus and balsam. Heart notes of spice, cedarwood and eucalyptus. Musk and moss at the base.

  3. For the busy moms- this is for our super heroes, hard working moms out there who rarely get a chance to relax and take a moment for themselves. We recommend a sophisticated, clean and luxurious scent for her to enjoy and celebrate moments of peace and quiet. Amour is a top pick and a classic aroma with long lasting vanilla, with a heart of bergamot and jasmine, fresh citrus notes at the base. Dream Today has also been a crowd pleaser with carefully curated green ozonic top notes, clean linen and wild rose floral heart ending with damp earth, moss and woodland musk.

  4. For the guy that was everything- a clean, classic and earthy fragrance is the way to go. Try Cedarwood & Tobacco Leaf- western cedar and a hint of leather are blended with a rich base of sandalwood as soft moss finishes the blend. We also recommend Fireside for a rich and luxurious experience- with a hint of spice, mahogany and teakwood are enhanced by top notes of geranium to create this ultimate earthy fragrance.

  5. For the homebody- who loves design, creating a beautiful home environment and all things pretty we recommend a warm and cozy scent such as Sunday- classic vanilla sugar and cinnamon spice at the base, with mid notes of clove leaves and maple syrup. Another home staple is You are Love with timeless aroma of vanilla bean, eucalyptus, with fresh undertones of lemon peel and apple. Sophisticated white musk, Canadian Fir and blonde woods at the base.

  6. For the mysterious one- well, we all have that one person in our lives that keeps us on our toes when it comes to gifting and what they like. If in doubt, and not sure what scent they would absolutely love, treat them to a Terradomi gift card and enjoy them discovering their favourites!
