Do you use candles a lot when you are at home?

I notice in recent years there are more and more people like to use candles instead of lights. Especilly when they are having baths, they will lit the candles on for relax and mysterious amosphere or any other reasons. Some people sometimes will like to have candle-lit dinner at home for romatic or celebration reasons. Are you one of these people?

I often buy candles with a nice smell. But i don't use candles daily at my home. If we lost electricity, then i will light up some candles.

Oh my. Me and my finace' are candle nuts. We light candles everyday. We light candles when relaxing watching a movie and having some alone time. We light candles every night at bedtime, and some times we light them during the day. We light plain ones and ones with scents.

I love candlelight. Everything looks much better in the soft glow of a candle. For some reason, the house looks nicer, my husband look better, and even any clutter in a room seems less obvious. That's part of why they're so relaxing, I think! I usually light candles in the evenings; the softer glow means less glare on computer screens while leaving me enough light to find objects on the desk and get up to get a snack without tripping over the cat.

I love candles. I think they are so romantic. I do like to burn a scented candle or two a few times a week. It's very relaxing. But I have to make sure it's in a safe place where my little toddler can't get to it.

I love candles, and so does my husband. He really loves to light a candle in the evenings. I; however, do not use candles as much as I am very scared of the dangers that come with lighting candles. I never really thought about it, until I saw some statistic that showed how candles were (I think # 1) one of the most frequent reasons behind residential fires. I am a bit paranoid when it comes to safety, and I really think that this news really made a dent in my love for lighting candles.

I don't use candles at all at home only when the electricity went out. I used to have oil burner for aroma therapy so, might consider lighting candles for that reason.

I am a candle addict, but I like them mostly for smells. I like anything that smells good. Some good priced candles that really make your home smell good are the ones in your grocery store with the air freshners from companies like glade.

No, I do not use candles at home. I understand that the smell the candles give is soothing. But I prefer to use the lights which goes lit with electrical power. They are safer and much brighter.
