    Cool Wax

    I was looking at my wife's new Pool Towel scented candle from Gold Canyon the other day.  She left it burning and stepped out for a short jaunt to the store. It was high up on a shelf and I couldn't see the liquified wax.  So I pulled it from the shelf and the wax...

    In the Bath

    While I'm having a long soak, I love lighting scented candles. I don't have a particular favourite but I'm most likely to pick something typical like rose or lavender. How boring am I? =P

    Not Only Candles But Pretty Candle Holders Too

    There is something majestic about candles.  I love the pretty ones the most.  These are the candles that have odd shapes or pictures sculpted within them.  Just as much as I love candles, I love odd candle holders.

    A New Love For Natural Soy Wax Candles!

    We recently rediscovered candle burning with natural soy wax candles, it's such a better experience for us. The soy wax is just so much cleaner burning and the fragrances are amazing. Our current favorites are 'Vanilla Pear' and Grandma's Kitchen from NorthWood Candle Company...

    Christmas..

    Around Christmas there's a lot bigger range of scented candles. And some are really great. A shop nearby sold read candles, that looked like stars. The smell was just awesome. Something between ginger-bread, strawberry and cherry-tea. :)

    "I Like Scented Candles"

    I agree Yankee Candles are the absolute best! I sometimes pick them up at the Halmark store in my area. I have a candle right now though it's not a Yankee Candle it smells like Chocolate Chip cookies! I think I found it at Walgreens.

    After My Shower

    I think after my shower tonight I might even light some just to smell their scent throughout my room, and it'll definitely make it smell a lot better back here in my room. LOL I've been spending a lot of time back here so it reaks of me!

    EcoCandles

    We have this great little store in Neenah that makes candles from soy wax and they are the best.  The scent is not too heavy, not too light and they last forever!  They also make these great wax beads that you can use in potpourri/oil burners that smell wonderful!

    Not Sure If It Exsts Anymore

    I love the scent "Unwind" from Partylite!  It reminds me of Drakkar Noir, which is a favorite scent of mine! When I burn Unwind candles, my muscles rest and my tensions leave me for the time being.
