If you do,what is your favorite scent?How often?Everyday? I only light scented candleswhen we have visitors. My favorite on ordinary days is peppermint scent in the house and citronella in open spaces. I am very careful though,im worried it will burn something or the house!

i love candles-they are all over my house.At the end of everyday when i am ready to sit and relax for the evening I light my candles.I light one on kitchen table everynight after supper and i light 2 or 3 in livingroom where i watch a bit of t.v-my candles are never left unattended-i don't use the tapered candles-i like the jars.I have a large jar called black cherry and it smells awesome-I have different scents for each room in the house.

I am a candle nut! My boyfriend goes nuts because when we moved into our apartment I had so many! I have a whole self in a cabinet of candles! I can't resist buying them when they are good scents/prices. haha. I love clean scents, like fresh laundry, vanilla, lavender. Those are my 3 faves. Anyways, I actually usually light them every night when I get home from work. Just because I find that it keeps our apartment constantly smelling fresh/nice. I love coming home to a good smelling apartment that smell clean and inviting!

I love scented candles. I enjoy the really good scented ones though. Can't stand any of the cheep scents though. Some of them are just horrid. Citronella candles are really my favorite candles either. I can't use them all the time here at the apartments though I wish I could though.

yeah,cheap ones are not so good.read up to response above, we can both try the new trends for scented candles. I have a citronella in a pot. It is safer in a pot, but I still put it on a ceramic stand just to avoid accidents.tnx so much

I do use scented candles. I don't really have a favorite scent though. I think the ones that smell like cinnamon or food are pretty neat. I think they're the best because some of them smell really excellent. Sometimes though they smell pretty bad. I think vanilla candles are pretty OK though, none of them usually smell bad and vanilla is a scent that is pretty much liked by everyone.

i use a variety of mia melts to get my house smelling good! and cause of the cats, i only use my electric tart warmer.that way there is no flame. plus if the cats knock over the wax, it cleans up with soap and water. they are a bit more expensive that the cheap melts you can get anywhere, but not too much, plus they throw off a HUGE amount of scent comparatively. my favorite scent right now is key lime pie.. but i'm still loving sweet fig and wildberry. i send out samples too, just pm me or enter to win on my website (profile)
