    Default Aroma decorating

    I was invited to a Party Lite Party this evening and wanted to purchase some scented tea lights to accompany the numerous unscented ones we use (we go through a lot of them in the fall and winter).

    What is your scent of choice and what tends to tickle your fancy?

    Its a public poll and you can vote for more than one.


    I just love the sweeter scents, it gives me the feel of 'hominess' and comfort.

    Love Party Lite candles - their scents are great. I voted for Environmental, Fruit & Unscented. My gf ran out of unscented for the dinner table one holiday and used baked good smelling ones (pie?) and the cinnamon was overpowering, kinda put me off from wanting to eat dinner I think my fave was the melon one.

    Just a tip - use unscented for the dinner table

    ~I like vanillas, earthy wood musks and spice scents. I voted Purposeful because that's how I use candle scents.~

    I have a candle tree that holds more than a dozen tea lights or votives. I can only use one scented one in the tree so it doesn't over power the entire room. It is beautiful though when all of the candles are the same color though. lol

    It depends on what time of year it is. In the fall/winter DH likes for the house to smell like cinnamon and apples but in the spring/summer he prefers fresh linen, cotton or an ocean scent.

    I always get jar candles because of kitties.
    I like vanilla,spices,strawberry and cinnamons. Pine/evergreen dscents are NOT my fav. I just burn candles occasionally but I like this thread idea.

    I like the natural scents, fruit, flowers, woodland stuff. I used to get Partylite votives, but haven't in a long time and I don't recognize any of their current scents.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    You can make coffee scented candles with old coffee grounds. Try googling for it. If you can't find instructions, let me know...I've got some here, somewhere?

    P.S. I voted for unscented as I'm scent sensitive. I used to love scented bath bombs, candles, etc. but they make me sneeze and my nose go nuts these days!

    I think Yankee Candle made one a while back. Kinda like a sweet sugary coffee scent...I can't quite remember though so please don't quote me.

    Its cinnamon in general...I love the smell of it but in a candle form its too strong for me and actually turns me off from wanting to eat. Especially when you have a nice healthy serving of a turkey dinner in front of you I think the candle makers need to make a 'hint o cinnamon' scent and keep it subtle, very subtle.

    I try to stay away from food scents. I often will move a candle from the kitchen to the bathroom, etc. I find that the food scents just don't suit the bathroom, kwim? I so use earthy scents like cotton and flowers with some fresh kicks like lemongrass or herbs (which I know are food, but they aren't sweet).

    LOL! They sure do MM! Cindy Crawford has, or at least had, a line of soy candles that were sold in Walgreens. Vanilla cappaccino was just one of her several coffee scents. I loved it, and so did my hubby who usually is turned off by alot of scents.
