Originality – Individuality – Service
We collaborate with the best & most creative perfumers and fragrance companies. This allows us to offer our customers very exclusive fragrances. Some of them are composed with patented fragrance molecules that offer an aromatic uniqueness in the marketplace.
We employ the strengths of different creative houses to meet the original and individual desires of our customers. Our own bekro evaluation team has a technical and design influence over the fragrance creations as well.
Bekro safety specialists determine that all legal requirements are met on the selected fragrance. Finally, our application engineers test and confirm the suitability of the fragrances for use in candle systems.
We use our full scope of knowledge about our colors, fragrances and additives to offer our customers an optimal candle package of the 3 products; fragrance, color and additives.
Quality and Selection Criteria
Our aim is to offer fragrances that are tested and known to be suitable for candles. Fragrance suppliers outside the industry regularly present creative fragrances that are incompatible for use in candle systems. When we develop and select our candle fragrances, we place special emphasis on the following criteria:
1. Creativity –Originality – Market Potential
2. Technical suitability
- Burning behavior
- Cold and hot throw
- Intrinsic color of the fragrance
- Compatibility with colorants
3. Safety aspects
- CLP labeling requirements
- Legal conformity
Based on our own market observations, with support of trend scouts and information from our business partners, we maintain an updated broad understanding of socio-cultural developments and trends. Every year we publish our trend predictions as a guide for our customers and retailers.
We are always ready to recommend the ideal, contemporary colors to highlight and enhance seasonal and arising fragrance trends.
This trend is driven by a desire to reconnect with the earth. Seeking a sense of belonging, we’re drawn to solitary landscapes in search of lost civilisations and ancient wisdom. The sun sets over the rich-hued Autumn desert, casting long shadows and bringing out the beauty of earthy twilight shades. Clay-like textures encourage us to feel grounded in the moment. Handcrafted finishes and carving become key for designing unique products.

Unmapped and untouched environments are becoming rare and intriguing, inspiring a shift towards wild and untamed narratives. At home we create the perfect winter retreat, a remote Nordic isle isolated from the mainland. Objects are curiously rough and rustic and colors are stonewashed in appearance. Cosy up in chunky knits as candles are lit at nightfall, enjoying the taste and smell of locally foraged wild botanicals against the sound of crashing waves and whistling wind.

The home becomes an intimate and sacred space for wonderment, dreaming and spirituality. Taking inspiration from the night sky; dark, rich tones and shimmering particles encourage introspection and a quest for magic. There is comfort in dreaming about the world beyond the everyday, as we look up to admire the mystery of the vast cosmos, inspiring celestial motifs and symbolic markings.

This trend indicates a transition towards contemporary Oriental references in design. Throwing open the doors to the first spring of a new decade, the Japanese concept of Ikigai inspires us to focus on the things that give meaning to life. Calming and subtly tactile environments within the home enhance time for personal rituals and self-care. An harmonious, nature-inspired palette pairs well with soft patterning and smooth, silky textures.

Celebrate the joy of life with sundrenched colors and bold scents infused with surprising notes. This Summer, the home takes center stage, driving a desire to ‘stand out’ rather than ‘blend in’. Home decoration is approached with a frivolous attitude; focusing on having fun. Design must be unusual, eye catching and more than anything, Instagrammable. This trend is all about exuberance, friendship and not taking life too seriously.

Essential oils for candles or fragrance lamps
The beneficial and healing effect essential oils have on body, mind and spirit has been known for ages. These oils are being used in fragrance lamps more and more frequently to fill rooms with fragrances based on natural substances, yet there is still much catching up to do in candle scenting. Essential oils are created with very precise extraction methods. Essential oils naturally start to evaporate at very low temperatures.
This is a useful characteristic for scenting rooms with liquid oils. The production of candles requires that both the temperature of the liquid wax and hot throw be considered. Bekro Candle Essence has been tested for these conditions and now makes it possible for you to scent your candles 100% naturally. The natural oils are divided into the following groups: 100% pure, (partially) certified organic, natural, nature-identical. Each of these groups is suitable for the production of candles. The manufacturer can choose any group - what determines the choice made is the respective marketing concept.
Nature-identical oils consist of natural oils with synthetic components added for price reasons. The synthetic substances are equivalent to chemically isolated natural substances. This way the cost of adding fragrance to naturally scented candles is optimized. The number of available aroma compounds a perfumer can use to create essential oil blends is around 300 substances, which is significantly lower than what is available for synthetic fragrances. We create custom blends for orders of 50kg or more per essential oil mixture.
