Rylan Clark reveals startling new job saying 'I'm taking my passion to the next level' | The Sun
RYLAN Clark has revealed a very different new job that follows his secret passion.
The TV star has become a 'scent sommelier' – hosting a scent masterclass for shoppers to match personalities – with candles.
The presenter found his love of fine fragrances when he was involved in the research and development of his first scent in 2018.
It comes after research of 2,000 adults found the nation’s favourite candle scents are vanilla, fresh linen, and lavender.
And nearly two in five think lighting a candle is the most effective way of relieving stress – with lavender deemed the most calming scent.
Rylan, who is hosting the masterclass at Homesense Thurrock, said: “A house isn’t a home without a candle flickering away. Scents can impact your mood, so it’s important you choose a fragrance that makes you feel good.

And scent was deemed the main consideration when buying a candle, followed by the cost.
Over half of the people surveyed have four or more candles in their home, spending an average of around £9 on each one.
And it's no surprise they’re so popular when half also said they like to receive them as a gift, according to the findings by OnePoll.
Respondents said they are most likely to light one up for special occasions including Christmas, to create a cosy atmosphere, and when entertaining guests.
And nearly a fifth have as many as 10 candles currently in their home waiting to be lit, while over a third feel ‘overwhelmed’ by the amount of choice available when it comes to purchasing a flickering pillar.
Deborah Dolce, group director for Homesense, says: “We’re undoubtedly a nation of candle-lovers and our sales soar in the autumn as people create a cosy mood as the colder nights draw in.
“In the UK, the average spend on a candle is £9 and our research revealed half of Brits like to receive one as a gift.
"We hope Rylan’s tips will help everyone choose the best candle, whether it’s a gift for a loved one or a treat for yourself.”
