There are many reasons why people go gaga for candles, and as an interior designer, I'm one of the pack. Creating a space should be a feast for all of the senses, so don't overlook smell. Memories are sparked by scent, making aromas quintessential to creating atmosphere. But more than that, a scented candle is an invitation. Light one whenever you have guests over to welcome them with warmth and just the right ambience. You can use them as aromatherapy for everyone present: lavender calms, for example, while citrus inspires joy and happiness.
