Did you know, there is scientific proof for how certain smells can bring back long lost memories? For example, does the smell of freshly baked cookies take you back to when you were a kid at your grandma’s house? Have you ever walked past someone at the shops and their perfume/aftershave has you thinking about someone from your past who also wore that same fragrance?
In technical terms, the olfactory nerve is located very close to the amygdala – the area of the brain that is connected to the experience of emotion as well as emotional memory. In addition, the olfactory nerve is very close to the hippocampus, which is associated with memory. The actual ability to smell is highly linked to memory. Research has shown that when areas of the brain connected to memory are damaged, the ability to identify smells is actually impaired. In order to identify a scent, you must remember when you have smelled it before and then connect it to visual information that occurred at the same time.
Fragrant candles can help you and your guests recall an amazing wedding day or a special corporate event long after the buzz has faded.
Here’s how to incorporate candles at your event:
- Candlelight adds amazing ambience to any room and Candela Sorelle’s premium natural soy wax candles look especially classy as centerpieces on guests’ tables.
- Our special ‘Weddings, parties, anything’ mini candle range offers cute, memorable and useful bomboniere gifts for wedding guests or in corporate event gift bags. Personalised labels add a slick finishing touch (and, when featuring your logo, they offer long-lasting brand awareness for your business).
- Looking for meaningful thank-you gifts for your bridal party? Candles make perfect presents and tie in well when incorporating other candles into your wedding day plans (eg. bomboniere, table styling etc)
- And don’t forget how olfaction works to add another layer to people’s memories. Design your whole wedding day around your one favourite scent and incorporate it in your centerpiece candles, bridal party gifts and bomboniere to help everyone recall your special day well into the future. The same thing goes for corporate events where your chosen table centerpiece candle fragrance can be matched with mini candles for your gift bags etc.
Candela Sorelle offers a wide range of bulk-order candle options. Choose from hand-poured natural soy candles in our standard (large) jars as well as medium jars. There’s a wide variety of jar and lid colour combinations in these sizes, subject to our suppliers’ stock availability.
For wedding bomboniere and corporate event gift bags, we also offer a mini candle range featuring three popular (and downright delightfully cute!) jar styles.
Rest assured that all bulk-order candles include the traditional Candela Sorelle features. Each candle is individually hand-poured and hand finished and we only use premium natural 100 per cent vegetable soy wax. We ensure maximum fragrance load in every candle for amazing scent throw. While we use standard Candela Sorelle wood wicks in our large and medium bulk-order jars, candles in the mini range feature natural cotton wicks. Please note, minimum bulk order numbers apply.
