After a busy day, sit back, relax, and unwind with the aroma of a scented candle wafting through your living room offering infinite hours of pleasure, as they flicker in the darkness. Over the past decade the candle industry has continued to expand rapidly and now these fragranced treats can be found in hardware stores, health food shops and even on the supermarket shelves.
However, harmonising the current economic downfall, consumers have become much more price sensitive, and as a result, candle sales have declined over the past few years. In order to retain a competitive edge, candle makers are looking into new ways of attracting and retaining their consumers. In response to this, leading candle retailers continue to expand their scented candle range, offering consumers more choice than ever before. The result is that consumers can easily find a scented candle in the marketplace to reflect any occasion, mood and season throughout the year.
