    Great Atmosphere

    I love the great atmosphere of when candles are burning. I love having all of the lights off in the house or sitting out on our patio with candles burning and listening to some music. Some of the better scented ones are really great too as the scent adds to the aura. My fav...

    i didnt grow up in a house with candles burning.

    but i always admired houses that had candles burning. it makes it smell good and it gives a warm feeling. as an adult, i burn candles constantly. i use them for all sorts of reasons in all of the rooms ( especially the bathroom and my boys stinky bdroom.)

    So my new love of wax warmers has increased.

    The warmers themselves are getting so so pretty! My newest. It's stupid bright though, so not staying on when it's sleep time!

    I love to light lots of candles at night

    and sit with my feet up watching television with no other lights on. It's so relaxing and more so when it's lots of scented candles

    Candles In The Drawer

    After work one night, back at my flat, I switched on the hall light and it flicked out, the next one did the same too and thereafter one after the other.  It was a cold night and I looked like a woman dressed in black as I stood in the darkness. ...

     I love lighting candles. They put me in such a good mood. But i like blowing them out better cuz I love the smell of smoke. I especially like the little pool of wax by the wick. I like to stick my fingers in it and wait for the wax to harden then peel it off my fingers. it...

    The "No Worries" Version

    What's Not to Love!?

    The wonderful scents; the warm, flickering light; the history; the romance; the fact that they're easy to make at home. I recently discovered a type called stick wick, in which the "wick" is actually a thin splint of wood.  Not only do they make the wax last...

    Scented Candles

    I love scented candles! Sometimes I will burn candles around the bathroom as I'm soaking in a bubble bath. Sometimes I will burn candles in the late evening, while I listen to soft music. Sometimes I will burn candles in the morning as I get ready for work. I don't have to have a...

    I Buy A Lot Of Candles

    On a nice quiet night, I like to turn off all the lights in the house and turn on candles. I just love the atmosphere and the warmness you get from candles. I'll sometimes read a good book while drinking tea. Puts me right to sleep sometimes. It's just so peaceful.
