    I used to hate when my mother would burn

    candles especially her cinnamon apple or lavender candles because they always smelled so harsh to me but now I love to burn the fruity smelling ones in my room to study or read and the dessert vented candles I use to relax in bed or bath it funny how things change over the years...

    I love fragrances. Recently M&S introduced a

    candle with a rose fragrance made from roses they grow in Grasse (centre of the perfume industry).

    I'm hooked on them. I just buy the most

    expensive and addictive ones, I love the little oils too though, because you only have to use a few drops for a whole lot of water, and it's lovely. I swear my room is like a meditation centre.

    They give such a great atmosphere to a room

    with the smell and the lighting. When I'm older I'll have a great collection of awesome Yankee Candle and Bath and Body Works and Bed Bath and Beyond Candles of all kinds. The house and/or apartment will be lit up beautifully when the power is out.

    You must keep lighting a candle from another

    candle. Because there is nothing wrong in passing on your good and positive traits to others around you. You never know you are a light in someone's life.

    I've always loved burning candles,

    maybe because it reminds me of my childhood, staying overnight with my grandparents. They had electricity in their house but for whatever reason it was only in the downstairs rooms. So, at bedtime, my grandfather would give me a candle holder with a burning candle to see my way...

    I like burning candles,

    but not the overwhelmingly scented ones. For me it's more about a soft, barely noticeable scent, and the flickering flame that makes me love them.

    Candles and incense are

    so relaxing. I love to watch the flicker of the flame. Be bathed in the soft glow of its light. The smell of the incense dancing through the air. My favorite thing was when i use to go outside in the middle of the night and there'd be a nice breeze blowing. I'd bring my candles...

    I find candlelight so much more serene

    and relaxing somehow. Sometimes at night, I love to sit quietly in my armchair and read by the light of a couple of candles on the stand next to me. It gives the room an almost otherworldly feel to it, which really fertilizes my imagination and helps me to become so much more...

    I like to buy them from bath and body works because the smell is stronger.

    It's something always done on the Shabbat.

    I love to light the candles for my table. I love to burn the candles, to show the Light of God in my home, the revelations to my people through our great lawgiver Moses.

    I love to burn candlea.

    Love the scented ones, especially the aromatherapy type. Candles are always buring along side incense sticks. The house always smells delightful. Love to sit in the evening in candlelight only.
