Feel free to light several complementary scents at once. The seasons and holidays are full of naturally occurring complementary fragrance. Each season contains a wealth of pleasing smell. The holiday season probably provides most scent. Recreate memories of Christmas past with gingerbread, vanilla, cinnamon, eggnog, clove, nutmeg, pine, peppermint candles. The scents don't compete, because they occur naturally, and you've smelled them from infancy. If you can think of a memory, you can find a candle to recreate mood.
Look around your home. You've probably created a room or two around a theme. Perhaps you've created an indoor sunroom. Bring scents of outdoors into your sunroom to add authenticity. Perhaps you've built a room around a color. Add lavender-scented candles to that lavender room, rose-scented candles to a pink room, new-mown grass-scented and rain forest candles to a green room, vanilla or gardenia to a white room, and seaside to a blue room.
Don't forget kitchen. Not only will you want to add scent, but you may want to eliminate odors as well. If you've created perfect dinner for guests, last thing you want is smell of garlic, onion, or fish wafting through your home when they arrive. If odor is overpowering, turn on kitchen fan, spray a little odor neutralizer in air, and light citrus-scented candles to replace cooking odors with clean scent of fruit.
Cheaper than a trip to paradise, quicker than you can even say "banana bread," you can light a candle. If your mind can imagine it, you can create it with scented candles for mere pennies!
