  • Yankee Candles are my favorite! Too many favorites to list tho. I like mostly fruit/food scents tho.

  • Yankee Candle is very nice :~) I like their Home Sweet Home and their Christmas cookie smell (smells like the whole house is filled with sugar cookies). I like them, but honestly I find that the candles you buy at the Dollar Store work just as well!

    I burn candles so often, I can't afford to pay $10-20 for a single one! So I buy them for a dollar, and I think they smell just as good. I buy melon scents for the summer, and for the fall and winter I buy vanilla, cinnamon, pumpkin, etc scents.

  • My friend held a party from this lady and the candles were to die for. You can smell them through the whole house without even burning them. My favorite that I have ordered so far is Blueberry Cobbler.Not to mention they are soy candles.

    Here is her website.

  • I'm not sure what the name of the candles are but I get them from Walmart for $9 and they're so strong (in a good way) you can smell them through the whole room without even lighting them. They're glass with one of the glass lids that you pop off and they have 3 different scents in it. The scents are different colors so the candle has 3 different layers. The last one I got smelled just like Livesavers. They're expensive but I love them and think they're worth it.

  • I hear that Yankee Candles have something toxic in them, but I can't remember what it is or if the information is reliable so... I guess there's no point in me saying it if I can't substantiate it!

    Anyway i agree that Sage is a lovely scent. I also like Lavender ever since my son started using Aveeno Lavender baby bath. It makes me think of him fresh out of bath and ready for bed time cuddles :)

  • I don't know the brand, but I love to burn candles that smell like I just baked something -- pumpkin pie, cookies, mmmmmmmmmmmmm.

  • I pretty much refuse to spend much on candles, so I buy the walmart kind and I get the cranberry mandarin. I LOVE it.
