    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. :)

    Aaaaaahhhh....

    I love lighting a few candles in the house when I need to relax or I've had a bad day.  The smell and the glow of a nice candle is very soothing.  If my house smells nice it just puts me in a better mood right away.  They're great in the bathroom for a nice...

    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!

    I Love Them, But...

    I have 4 cats and a big dog, so burning candles is unsafe. I found  some battery operated candles that look like they  are melting like real candles, and they have a lovely scent, so I use them from time to time. The only thing is the batteries are hard to find and...

    Yankee

    The nicest smelling candles are the American candle brand "Yankee Candle" and they have all those natural, memory bringing smell. My favorite is beach walk and it smells just like you're sitting on a beach. They also have christmas smells, pies, cottage smells and more! I adore...

    I love to sit at night watching television,

    no lights on with just candles lit. More so scented candles, I love to watch the tiny flames flicker, I love to see all the different colours as the flames dance, burning brightly. Such warmth, so relaxing, they can be so hypnotic. It's a great way to unwind after a very hectic...

    "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.

    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!

    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

    Amazing, Relaxing, Wonderful

    i love scented candles. Have them all over the house, they make the rooms smell simply beautiful. My favorite scent is ...that's hard. Vanilla, orange, hyecenth, floral, apple pie, maple walnut ... oh, just depends on my mood.

    I Like Mine

    I make scented container candles with 100% natural soy wax and they are soooo much better than paraffin. They just burn cleaner and throw scents better than any store purchased candles I have found. Plus, it's a nice little hobby to have. The scents they have to choose from...

    Chocolate and Vanilla

    Chocolate and vanilla are my favourite scents but I do have others too, rose, lavender and a few citrus ones I use in the bathroom. I love all candles but can't light them too much as I have three noisy cats and I worry they may get burnt.

    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.

    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.
