    The Best Candle Scent, Ever!

    I am a grown woman. I have a college degree. I know candles are made of wax. I have known candles are made of wax for at least thirty years. So what would possess me to dip my finger into melted candle wax, taste it, and expect it to taste like anything other than candle wax...

    The Best Candles I Have Tried!

    A few years ago I was searching on the internet for candles because I just love them.  I came across a website that intrigued me because of all the fragrance selections, at the time I believe it was almost 300 to choose from!  From then on I was hooked!  Candles by...

    Many Uses

    Candle lamps...I have a ton of them. Most of them stay in my closet for when I need them such as a power outage (like Hurricane Sandy for example). The one I have out on my altar is a small blomus candle lamp that looks like something you would see on your table at a fancy...

    I'm Actually Sort Of Addicted To Them...

    So candles seem to get given quite a bad reputation, like a lot of people seem to be really candle-phobic and think that using candles is a sure and certain way to end up burning down your house. Well I say that these people need to get a grip, candles are awesome when used with...

    So Much Fun

    I just like them. I don't know. Maybe I'm making up for lost experiences or something, since my mom didn't let me use lighters or matches as a child, and most certainly wouldn't let me burn candles in my room. I did have candles, though. Scented ones that I'd just like set out...

    Favorite Scents...

    Is there nothing more romantic than a room lit full of candles... or a candle on the table... beside a prepared meal... The light flickering in your lovers eyes as they slide ontop of you at night to steal a kiss or two. I love candles. They are soothing, the light, the scent...

    Spiritual And Calming

    Ever visited church? Visit the pilgramage church of Notre Dame in Rocamadour, France. Her shrine, surrounded by candles, silence and reverence. It's beautiful, and I don't even believe in God. If you can't get there, then just go anywhere where there is a quiet church, filled...

    Part of it is romantic.

    .. another part of it is a touch of pyromania. I enjoy having scented candles around and using candles for decoration. I haven't tried using candles... or melted candle wax to be more specific... in an intimate way but I'm open to trying anything once.

    Candles are beautiful in their own way,

    i prefer the Apple and Cinnamon scented ones because that smell alone calms me and makes me feel at peace, i love watching the flames do their hypnotic dance as the wax melts slowly and slides along the side of the candle.

    The World Lit Only By Fire

    Memories

    I love candles....scented or non-scented...I love them all. A few nights ago, I lit a large candle and placed it in the fireplace. The air coming down from the chimney was making the flame flicker to and fro. It was hypnotic to watch the candle flame dancing in the dark. The...

    I've always loved candles.

    I like the flicker of the flame and the scent of them as they burn. But lately I've taken up making my own candles. This is nice because it allows me to make the scent as strong or weak as I desire. And it's fun. I enjoy making candles.

    Burning Candles In Winter

    I love burning candles. I do it almost every day in the winter because it's dark and dreary out. I don't see the point of burning candles in the summer when it is light out until later in the evening. But I love the smell of almost every fruit scented candle although I don't like...
