Splash into Spring with Citrus

Spring is in the Air! With warm weather right around the corner, it’s time to celebrate the change of seasons with a splash of citrus!

Fun Fact: citrus sells best! The Neighborhood Line consists of twenty-seven fragrances. Of those twenty-seven, it’s our citrus-inspired scents that consistently top the short-list of bestsellers. While we always encourage our retail partners to keep diversity in mind when choosing fragrances, there’s no denying that a pop of citrus plays a key role in any collection.

Could your candle collection use a breath of fresh air this spring? Beat the post-holiday blues and start the year off right with a dose of Vitamin C!

All About that OJ OG

When Ella B. Candles was launched in 2011, we only offered one fragrance. A blend of sweet citrus notes with a hint of wood, it was equally elegant and playful — attributes that made it an instant classic. Known today as Fragrance No. 15 (Grapefruit, Citrus & Evergreen), that OJ OG scent remains our #1 bestseller and a mainstay in personalized candle collections across the country.

While No. 15 may check the box on citrusy goodness, why stop with one?

Fresh Squeezed Scents

If you’re ready to handpick an additional citrus scent for your collection, you’ll find plenty up for grabs at the Ella B. Candles grove…

  • No. 1 (Mandarin Orange & Vanilla) – Warm, sweet, and wonderfully versatile
  • No. 11 (Lemon Zest & Vanilla) – Often likened to cake without the calories, think of this sugary sweet scent as your Neighborhood collection’s dessert course
  • No. 22 (Grapefruit & Lemon Verbena) – The strongest scent in our citrus line-up, grapefruit dominates in this energizing blend
  • No. 27 (Cilantro, Orange & Myrrh) – Towing the line between fresh and cozy, this fragrance is the quintessential clean house scent. Did someone say Spring Cleaning?

Here Comes the Sun Fun!

Once you’ve picked a new scent (or scents) for your collection, it’s time for the fun part: giving it a name! Welcome spring with a season-specific name (like Spring Awakening or Spring Clean) OR, for candles that will sell into the summer months, try something sunny and bright:

  • You Are My Sunshine
  • Sunshine In My Pocket
  • Be The Light
  • Here Comes The Sun
  • Shine Bright
  • The Future Is Bright

Pair your sunny slogan with a colored ribbon to make your new addition the total package. Shown above: our snack-size votives tied with Torrid, Light Coral, Old Gold and Daffodil grosgrain ribbons.
