What's your position on scented candles? Right, I fully admit this is not a question that will impact national security or even how the rest of your day will go, but it has been nagging at me.
There are so many options out there - you've got the huge variety of Yankee Candles to those chic ones from Jo Malone, you can get any scent you want these days. But I am a little torn about them. Maybe it is because I am really sensitive to scents (my husband says I have a super nose, as I can smell things he can't) or perhaps as I have a gazillion allergies and don't want to take the chance I may cause some sneezies by lighting one.
I have gotten many as gifts over the years, and have given a few as hostess presents. The one thing I do know: never light a scented candle at a dinner table or when you are eating. The scents compete with the smell of the food and can alter the taste of a delicious meal...who knew, right? I learned that a few years ago on a home makeover show, I think...
But back to the question at hand: how do you feel about scented candles? Do you have a favorite scent? Do you like to get them as gifts or give them?
