Fragrance is an essential part of our daily routine, and with each passing year, we see new trends emerging in the world of home fragrance. 2023 is no different, in this blog, we will be discussing some of the latest trends that have been gaining popularity in recent times.
1. Clean and Green: One of the most significant trends in the fragrance industry right now is the shift towards cleaner and greener scents. At Galgorm Melts we are already striving to be clean and green. Not only do we offer vegan and plant based soy wax melts, but our reed diffuser bases are also made using a natural, renewable and an eco-friendly base. As consumers become more conscious about their impact on the environment, we know they too are looking for fragrances that are made from sustainable and natural ingredients, because of this scents that are inspired by nature, such as citrus and herbal notes, are becoming increasingly popular. Why not try our best seller Goji Berry and Blood Oranges in a soy wax melt or our new Goji Berry and Blood Oranges reed diffuser or a great alternative would be Zesty Lime, Basil and Clementine!
2. Gourmand: Gourmand fragrances, are scents inspired by food and desserts, have been trending for the past few years and continue to gain popularity. These fragrances feature notes like vanilla, caramel, and chocolate, and are often mixed with fruity or floral notes to create a unique and indulgent scent. At Galgorm Melts we do love a sweet home fragrance. Caribbean Oceans soy wax melt not only marries lemons, limes and peaches, but it finishes on that go to tropical ingredient, coconut!
3. Nostalgia: Nostalgia-inspired fragrances are also gaining popularity, with scents that take us back to our childhood memories or favourite places. These fragrances often feature notes like musk, amber, and sandalwood and are blended with fresh and fruity scents to create a comforting and familiar aroma. We love to evoke memories and our favourite Galgorm Melts fragrance, Fresh Irish Linen does just that. Imagine your Summer days as a child spent running through bed sheets hanging from the washing line – just perfect! Try Fresh Irish Linen in our soy wax melt, which has added Nigella Seeds or in our new Fresh Irish Linen Reed Diffuser!
4. Gender-neutral: Gender-neutral fragrances have been on the rise for some time now, and the trend is set to continue in 2023. These fragrances are designed to be worn by anyone, regardless of their gender identity, and feature scents that are neither too masculine nor too feminine. Citrus, woody, and floral notes are often used in gender-neutral fragrances, creating a versatile and subtle scent. We feel Earthy Wood Sage and Sea Salt and Australian Sandalwood, Leather and Tonka soy wax melts absolutely fit this trend.
5. Artisanal: Artisanal fragrances, which are handcrafted and made in small batches, are also becoming increasingly popular. These fragrances feature unique and unconventional scents that are often inspired by niche ingredients or exotic locations. We suggest our soy wax melts in Eucalyptus, Sea Fennel and Cypress, Wild Figs, Plums and Cassis or Zen Garden. These fragrances are perfect for those who want to stand out from the crowd and create their own signature home scent.
In conclusion, the fragrance industry is always evolving, and it's exciting to see what new home fragrance trends will emerge in the coming years. Whether you prefer clean and green scents or indulgent gourmand fragrances, there is something for everyone in the world of perfume.
