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.
Scratch the surface
Finding space for intimacy and solitude becomes a priority. This trend is about getting back to the self, getting hands-on and developing a deep connection with the items around you. The concept of ‘raw’ products and experiences inspires a search for ever more tactile activities and we are drawn to the woodshed and workshop. The room is filled with bitter, raw natural scents like wood shavings, smoke and charcoal.

With darker days comes an appreciation for darker tales and harsh truths. In uncertain times we hide away, getting lost in a good book, but we no longer expect these tales to be full of positivity; intrigued by mystery and darkness as much as light. As night descends over the Black Forest, fairy lights twinkle, the fire gently crackles and sweet-smelling reductions bubble on the stove. The nostalgic scent of baked gingerbread and freshly cut fir fills the air.

This Christmas, the art of entertaining at home is central to celebrations as we seek frivolity and fun. The decadent parties of the past inspire champagne filled evenings. Rooms are plush and ornately decorated; finished with drinks trolleys and cut crystal cocktail glasses. Enter the new golden era of the soiree, where things are done properly. Fragrances fizz and sparkle undercut by tones of chalky patiserries and luxury confectionery.

In a quest for purity and freshness we embrace exotic botanical infused mists and succulent tropical environments. This saturated and succulent trend is inspired by monsoon season and the humid mists of the jungle. A cleansing palette of deep, saturated and juicy greens complements fresh, damp fragrances of aloe and ozone.

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.
