What is fragrance throw?
Fragrance throw, also known as scent throw or room fill, refers to the strength and distance at which a fragrance can be detected in a room or space. It is an important aspect to consider when choosing a candle, diffuser, or other home fragrance product, as it can greatly affect the overall experience of the scent.
Fragrance throw is determined by several factors, including the concentration of the fragrance oil used in the product, the size of the room or space, and the ventilation in the room. Products with a higher fragrance oil concentration will typically have a stronger throw, while larger rooms or spaces will require a stronger throw to effectively scent the entire area.
You will find that our 3-Wick candles have the perfect amount of throw for smaller rooms like bedrooms, entryways, kitchens, and offices while our 4-Wick candles can provide a home-filling fragrance output good for the entire home!
Additionally, the way a product is used can also affect fragrance throw. For example, burning a candle in a drafty room will weaken the fragrance throw, while using a diffuser in a small, closed-off room will enhance it.
When shopping for a candle or other home fragrance product, it is important to consider the desired fragrance throw. If you want a subtle scent, a product with a low fragrance oil concentration may be best. If you want a strong scent that can fill a large room, a product with a high fragrance oil concentration may be more suitable. It's also important to consider the size of the space you want to scent, and whether you have any particular concerns, such as allergies or sensitivities.
Overall, fragrance throw is an essential feature to consider when choosing a home fragrance product, as it can greatly impact the overall experience of the scent. Understanding and identifying the fragrance throw of a product will allow you to select the perfect product for your specific needs and preferences.
