Best Pura Scents: What you need to know

First of all, we absolutely love our Pura. Read our full Pura Review and also, don’t miss our Pura Promo Code. We’ve compared it to other smart diffusers, too. See how it compares to Aera in our Pura vs. Aera Comparison. Want the short version of the story? Pura beats Aera in almost every category.

Pura wins in fragrance selection, set up, ease of use. Aera wins in overall coverage. That’s the too long, didn’t read version. Here are the Best Pura Scents….

Capri Blue is one of the main reasons we first decided to even test out Pura. We’re gladd we did!

However, the number one category that Pura beats Aera in is the scents. Why are Pura Scents better? Simple: they are from brands you already know. Brands like Capri Blue (check our our best Capri Blue dupes, too), NEST, Homesick, James Harden, Bridgewater Candle Company and many more!

Pura Scents Review: Do they really smell like the candle fragrance?

The Pura Scents line is a high-quality collection of fragrances. Many reviewers have claimed that they smell exactly like the candles do, and this has earned them praise from consumers who’ve used both the candles and the sprays. But does it live up to its promises? Are they really “true to life” replications of their candle scents?

A couple of differences between Pura and a candle:

  1. There is just something romantic about a candle. From using a match to light it, to the twinkle that is projects on the ceiling while the flame dances to the smoke that comes up when you blow it out. A candle is just more romantic. Nothing will replace that.
  2. Candles are more dangerous. Have you ever came home from running errands and a candle is lit when you come home. Yikes! That makes you feel like you could burn the whole house down. But with Pura that just isn’t possible.
  3. You know exactly how much candle scent is left. You can see the wax in the candle. It’s that easy. While Pura does now show you when a scent is “low fragrance,” what does that mean? 1 day? A week? 2 weeks? With a candle you just know.

With a candle, you know how long you have. With Pura, it’s a bit more difficult.

Best Pura Scents review: our top scents, in order

As mentioned, we bought the Pura scents mostly for Capri Blue. However, we like several of the other scents, too. Here are our top Pura Scents, in order, from the scents that we tried!

#1 Best Pura Scent: Capri Blue Volcano

The ultimate guide to the best Pura scents 5
The Best Pura Scent, at least in our opinion!
The ultimate guide to the best Pura scents 6

What Pura Says About Capri Blue:

Volcano is pleasant and inviting, so be sure to use this in your entryway, living room, and kitchen; places where this scent will truly shine. When guests walk into your home and smell this first thing, it will be an instant conversation starter and a great first impression.

Our Capri Blue Pura Scent Review:

This smells exactly like the Capri Blue Candle. The perfect balance of clean, sweet and citrus. Smells like an Anthropologie.

This is our favorite Pura Scent that we use all the time.

The ultimate guide to the best Pura scents 7

A quick aside with Pura Scents: One of the (many) ways that Pura is awesome is that it stores two different slots for scents. While you can put the same scent in both slots, that’s not what we recommend. It’s always a great idea to make sure you have two different types of scents so you smell the scents more often. If you use the same scent, your nose will get used to it.

For example, having Capri Blue Volcano in one slot and Frasier Fir or Capri Blue Havana Blue in the other slot (thats what we do).

#2 Best Pura Scent: Frasier Fir

The ultimate guide to the best Pura scents 8
While it may be more seasonal, this is one of our favorites!

What Pura Says about Frasier Fir:

The aromatic snap of Siberian fir, cedarwood and earthy sandalwood combine to create a just-cut forest fragrance that evokes warmth and comfort.

Our Frasier Fir Pura Scent Review:

We love this scent! It’s our favorite winter scent right now. It’s a great, clean and is a nice blend of Fir and Pine.

It smells like a clean, fresh Christmas tree.

#3 Best Pura Scent: Capri Blue Havana Vanilla Scent

The ultimate guide to the best Pura scents 9

What Pura Says about Havana Vanilla

Spice things up with Havana Vanilla! It’s filled with delicious notes of vanilla and a hint of smoky tobacco, bergamot and sandalwood.

Our Havana Vanilla Pura Scent Review:

We were initially concerned about “smoky tobacco” – but it’s really more of a rich vanilla (versus a super sweet vanilla). It’s a nice, rich vanilla scent – almost carmel. Another great compliment to Capri Blue Volcano.

Other Great Pura Scents

A couple of other great Pura Scents that we really liked. I wouldn’t put these in any particular order, but other really good options!

Homesick Hawaii

The ultimate guide to the best Pura scents 10
We really liked Homesick Hawaii

This smelled very similar to Capri Blue Volcano – just a little bit sweeter. If you like Volcano, there’s a good chance you’ll like Hawaii by Homesick. Just a hint of floral in there, too, which isn’t bad – we just don’t like overwhelmingly floral scents. That’s just our opinion.

Votivo Frosted Pine

Votivo is one of our favorite pura scents

Honestly, we’d never heard of Votivo before, but they were kind enough to send us a package with some of their scents. We really like the Frosted Pine Scent.

Any of the Nest Scents

Best Pura Scents - you can't go wrong with NEST Scents
Pura Scent Review: We really like all of the Nest scents

NEST has really simple scents, from Sicilian Orange to Grapefruit. We just like that their scents are super simple and straightforward. You can’t go wrong with any of them.

Pura Scents We Do Not Recommend

Writing about scents is weird. There’s no smell-o-vision… yet. It’s hard to tell what types of things you like and what you don’t based on the description. What does bergamot smell like? I have no idea! Here are some of the fragrances we did NOT like, but you may (we know fragrances are super subjective!)

Homesick NYC

The ultimate guide to the best Pura scents 11
Pura Scent Review: one of the few scents we did not like.

What Pura Says about Homesick NYC

The distinctive scents of spring days in Central Park, fine department stores, and concrete capture the energy of the greatest city on earth.

Our Pura Homesick NYC Scent Review:

This doesn’t smell terrible, it just smells like Febreeze. That’s the best way I can describe it.

If you don’t like floral scents…

The ultimate guide to the best Pura scents 12

If you don’t like Floral Scents, we’d recommend staying away from some of the scents like Bridgewater Candle Company. They were very pleasant but we just don’t like super-floral scents (part of the reason we didn’t like Aera as much).

Pura Scent Review – What are the best scents?

As we’ve mentioned, we love Pura and love their scents. The truth is, if you like a candle or reed diffuser scent, like Carpi Blue or Nest – you will love the Pura version of it. It smells EXACTLY like the fragrance and not a cheap duplicate. We promise. It’s not like a cheap perfume like this Gucci knock-off in Amazon:

The ultimate guide to the best Pura scents 13
Pura scents are not like a cheap knockoff – they work directly with the brands to create

Long-story short: that’s why we love Pura the most – it’s affordable and you know exactly what the scents smell like BEFORE you buy them.
