The candle represents an element that today is enjoying great success, to be used both for the interior and for the outdoor space. Referring in particular to garden candles, we can indicate different models, since the same shops specialized in outdoor furniture offer more and more novelties. At one time, the garden candle was known in the classic version of ‘lemongrass’. In other words, it was a candle made with citronella oils, housed in an aluminum or terracotta container, which was essentially used to ward off mosquitoes. The size of these candles was quite large, and once lit, they gave off a smell that served to keep insects away. Today they are still sold, but rather than this kind of candle, we often prefer to use other systems against mosquitoes, and we choose to give the garden candle a different identity

candleThanks to the candle holder, made mainly of wrought iron, the candles can also be hung from the branches of trees, so that their foliage appears to be illuminated. The garden candle can be chosen in the classic version or in the scented version. The classic candle can be white or colored, it has no fragrance, but only the purpose of illuminating. They can be placed at the edge of a swimming pool, on a table, or positioned to create a path along the path that leads to the dining area. The size is varied, there are all types, small, medium and large, and can be chosen according to the effect you want to create. The scented garden candles, in addition to illuminating, give off a pleasant scent. It is best to avoid too intense fragrances, especially if the garden has very fragrant plants. Scented garden candles are often used in the relaxation area.

Candles can be placed with their normal support with which they are sold or bases can be purchased to support them. In this case, you can buy multiple containers of candles, or large glass lanterns, inside which to house large candles. The greater the size of the candle, the longer the duration, so for an evening in the company of friends it is good to prefer rather large candles. The cost varies depending on whether you choose small or large candles, scented or not. The candles can also be lit by means of a special candle light, very practical and convenient.

The most interesting garden candles are undoubtedly the floating candles. Very special, they can be used both in the pool, in a fountain, and in a small pond. It is a type of candle that creates a very particular effect by reflecting in the body of water in which it is placed. They can be found in different shapes (star, flower), and in different colors.

Candles are born to create a more intimate and romantic atmosphere. The summer garden, lit only with candles, is certainly very special. The soft light also allows for a very relaxing atmosphere. The light is certainly proportionate to the number of candles that are placed in the area where you decide, for example, to organize a party. Furthermore, there are those who prefer to combine the use of candles with the use of traditional lamps. Should you choose to use candles exclusively for lighting, both for the paths, for the dining area, and for the relaxation area, you will need to purchase large candles, which can last for the entire evening. If the candle is not housed in a tall enough candle holder, the diffused light will propagate only on the ground, but if you want medium lighting, taller candle holders will be needed. For the dining area, candles can also be placed in a candelabra, to decorate the table as if you were inside. Paying particular attention to the choice of candles in their shape and color, it will be possible to set up your garden also following a specific theme. With a little creativity and imagination, garden candles will be able to offer an unforgettable atmosphere, which can be made even more special by using floating candles. The only attention should be given to children, if they are present, because they could risk getting burned, especially if the candles are not protected inside a closed candle holder.

Garden candles can be purchased at both outdoor furniture stores and other types of stores. If you are looking for particular candles or with unusual fragrances, you can also search on the net, where you are always updated on news. There are no more or less beautiful candles, there are only garden candles that can be of your own taste, also in relation to the furnishings. Since the candle, once lit, exhausts its function in the space of an evening, you can also decide to indulge in the choice of candles with a particular and perhaps a little bizarre aesthetic.
