Big Grin Scented candles

I just got into them. I love them! My favorites are Vanilla cookies and Spiced apple. I like the flower scents but they don't seem to spread around the room strongly enough. What are your favorites?

Buttercream is good and I LOVE the smell of lilac but I haven't found a candle that puts out a strong enough scent. But that's the air freshener I have in my car right now!

What is the Bono candle?

I'm burning a spiced apple candle right now. For florals I like peony and jasmine. A friend gave me some pear and peach scented ones that I really like. I'm not really a fan of vanilla either. It's almost too sweet.

I love vanilla, rose, and anything that has a spice scent to it.

I love candles but my allergies don't so I can't be around them too much.

I love anything fruity from Bath and Body works, especially Sun Ripened Rapsberry & Cucumber Melon. Those two don't make me sneeze :smells yummy:

I have been buying candles forever! I used to buy the blueberry one from KMart many moons ago. *feels old*

I go through stages from fruity to floral to spicey to the cake/cookie ones. I like them all really.

Right now I have the Bridgewater Candle Company "Indian Paintbrush" it smells wonderful!

I can't wait till I get my own place just so I can fill it with candles! I have two on my desk with me now and one on my window sill...but we're not technically supposed to light candles in on-campus housing so you kinda have to do it on the sly...
