Though the general trend for the moment is set by the very popular scented candles, the unscented ones could never be excluded or marginalized on the market. Unscented candles work great for a variety of occasions where their flavored variants could never be used. Let's take for instance the very common candles used in church ceremonies: they are always made of high quality pure bees wax and they are completely odorless. The same working principle stays valid for weddings where one can use unscented candles combined with scented ones. For instance, only simple, odorless candles can be used in table decorations, any additional flavor may interfere with food aroma.
We know that candles are generally used for a variety of events, and sometimes special measures need to be taken in order for the decorations to be perfect. For instance, you should always use unscented candles for business parties either in room corners or on the tables; they function as mere atmosphere enhancers while also maintaining the sobriety and the class specific to the event. Furthermore, in case you don't know all the guests, it would be wrong to make use of essential oil candles, since some smells may be annoying to certain people.
Stick to the use of unscented candles on any occasion when you are not familiar with the preferences of your guests. After all, soft, relaxing light is good for private talks, romantic dinners and any time you need to eliminate stress and induce a state of well-being. Unscented candles make excellent choices for outdoor decorations; in order to avoid the discomfort of wind blowing the candles, you may have to use some special glass holders for the best of effects. Unscented candles can thus be used for patios, pool areas, gazebos or anywhere you need to create some special light effect.
