Burning a citronella candle while enjoying the outdoor summer air is a must for those who live side-by-side with mosquitoes. But sometimes that citronella scent can be a bit overwhelming. Minnesota-based fragrance company ILLUME just dropped a new Outdoor Ceramics Collection that offers citronella candles that smell so much better than just citronella.

Available in six warm and fresh scents — Amber Bergamot, Citrus Cedarleaf, Cypress Lavender, Eucalyptus Ylang, Rosewood Classics, and Vetiver Sage — each has a touch of citronella to help keep the mosquitoes at bay.

The scents are blended using pure essential oils and all-natural elements, including a touch of citronella. These yummy scents are also available in indoor candles, lotions, room sprays, and essential oils, too, if you find yourself falling in love.

The Outdoor Ceramic candles come in three different sizes, with the smallest having a 20-hour burn time and the largest offering a whopping 120 hours of burn time. All candles come with three or four wicks and are meant to be used outside on a deck or patio.

The candles are poured into beautiful reusable ceramic containers that come with matching lids. After your candle has burned all the way through, the vessels can be used as decor or even as plant pots.

So if you’re tired of being bitten and want something a bit more exciting than your standard citronella candle, ILLUME has got you covered. Your summer deck parties have never smelled better.
