Scented candles are awesome… when they don't smell like food. I love walking into a room that smells like Christmas Trees to find a Yankee Candle burning on a nearby table. Personally, the "Storm Watch" scent is my favorite but when they discontinued it, I moved on to "Fresh Linen."
Scented candles cross the line in my book when they smell like food. No one wants to come home hungry with a "Christmas Cookie" candle burning in the room. I can't tell you how many times I got up to blow that candle out at my house late at night to fight the urge to grab a snack!
For those who like the obscure scents like "Fresh Cut Grass," you'll enjoy the new scent of Fried Chicken that is being made by Kentucky for Kentucky. They go on sale this Friday… no word if the candlemakers will share their secret recipe.
