For those who want to keep their pets but banish their scent, pet odour candles can be both stylish and effective.
Pet odour candles typically work by using a special enzyme that is released when the candle is burning. As it vaporises, it typically masks the odour creating a warm and inviting scent in the air instead.
If you fancy trying one or two in your home, this guide is compiled through a balance of user rating, style factor and effectiveness of the scent.
