RPG candle scent guide.

Below you'll find lists of scents based on what they're usually associated with. These are subjective of course, but I compiled these lists based on scents used in candles, perfumes, and other fragrances either advertised as or associated with the below lists. More may be added in the future.

I've written a guide on candle making (found here), in which I mentioned how to combine scents to form a bouquet. If you want to avoid reading the entire thing: You usually want to combine background scents, frontal scents, and perhaps some accent scents. Frontal scents are the strong, fresh ones (lemon, flowers, etc.), the background ones are the darker ones (wood types, musk, etc.), and the accent scents can be a few drops of the frontal ones, or the scents that are neither fresh nor dark (vanilla, honey, etc.).
But do experiment with all of this, it's far more fun.
