Do you like candles? Do you prefer the ones that have scents? What's your favorite scent? What's the most you've ever paid for a candle?

I love fragrance candles. I usually light 2 at a time so the scent goes through the house. The candles I have at the moment are from Partylite but I've also brought some from Dusk (think they're around $3 each for votives). I prefer to pay a little extra for decent candles as opposed to ones from cheapie stores as the cheap ones don't have full fragrance or colour. Candles from places like Partylite or Dusk have the fragrance throughout the candle so you get long lasting scent. Another thing many people don't realise about cheap candles is that they contain lead. This means that, while you are burning them, you are poisoning anyone in your home with lead! My favourite fragrances are strawberry, rose, cranberry.

The only time I use candles is when the power goes out and when I'm going to church.

I likt candles with some scents, but I don't like it too strong, otherwise I feel very uncomfortable. It is very cheap to have candles. We pay one RMB for five small white candles. One dollar to seven point five RMB right now.

Rarely the power is shut down for more than 2 minutes and hence the use of candles is not much seen here. I have an emergency lamp and also inverter system which is of great use during the powerfailure of disconnection. If all fail, then I light the candle. I use the beewax candle rather than paraffin waxed candles. It costs more but it is more healthier and lasts long.

yes i like candles very much. but here in our country where it is very warm i cannot light up a candle as much as i want to. but i do like the scented candles especially when i like to relax or just to have a moment of peace. lighting a scented candle is just the right answer.
