green apple does smell wonderful!...and i love soy candles so much better. They burn so much cleaner and have less affect on allergies..thanks!

I love PINE!! But for some reason, they are really hard to find. Usually, one can find them more around Christmas. But for some reason the little small town I now live in is more interested in the apple and cinnamon smell. Or just the overwhelming smell of cinnamon. :( So, I didn't get to stock up on pine candles this past season. *sigh*

i love pine, too, but usually only in the winter...for me it gets a little heavy during the warmer months..for that time of year i like fresher scents like lemon, etc. Thanks for responding

I have a few favorite candle scents. A few of them would have to be: Strawberry, Lavender, as well as French Vanilla! . . I love strawberry because each & every time I buy a candle that smells like strawberries.. I always end up smelling it.. And.. I feel like I had just bitten in to a real ripe strawberry. I've always loved that smell since every time I buy strawberries I can smell them a mile away.. They smell so fresh. And every time I buy the strawberry scented candles it makes me want to go out & buy real strawberries because the candle smells so good you could eat it. Not that I would or anything! . . haha. I love french vanilla as for me it's a traditional smell for me. I grew up with the smell. I'd always come home from school & that fragrance would be one of the very first things that I'd smell when walking in the door. I always purchase air fresheners that smell like vanilla since it makes our bedroom always smell so inviting. And I pick lavender because of the fact that I have always found this to be a very comforting smell. The smell seems to always relax me all of the time. I find this smell has always been able to relieve me from my every day stress, my fatigue, among other things.. I always try to have these type of scents within the house, even if it's not just a candle.. But I love how when you light these type of candles you can just walk right in to your own bedroom or house.. And smell it right away. It just makes a person feel so much more relaxed when they breathe this scent in I have found! . . There are a few others I like such as: Cotton candy, Cinnamon, Pumpkin Spice, Lilac, Ocean breeze, etc. But the one's above that I had stated & gone in to great detail about have always been my favorite. I love going to stores that have candles & I'll go down that aisle & just smell the new fragrances they are bringing out.. Sometimes I come across a few more that I can add to my favorites list. Thank you for allowing me to share. xx

I prefer plain beeswax candles, te light is such a beatiful colour from beeswax and the scent is subtle and elusive. I adore the honey scent of the wax, amkes me want to go and visit my bee hives :)
