I remember putting whole cloves into an orange with my mom around Christmas. That was the BEST smell.

I wish the world would suddenly be free of scented candles, incense, air "freshener," and the like. They're so toxic. They give me migraines, the entire lot.

Hi Jay... a lot of smells do that to me too Jay! And when I get one I suffer badly!!!

But... one candle burning at a time doesn't seem to bother me. Two different candle smells...and I'm a gonner... I can't even walk by one of those candle stores. I understand how you feel! :-)

I tried to post a couple of links to info on how toxic scented candles are, but I haven't got enough posts yet. Google "scented candles toxic" and you can read for yourself about how bad these things are, including all that Glade crapola.

Probably an addiction. Seems to hit women more than men.

As long as they don't live anywhere near me...

I got many Christian neighbors, they prepare cakes and other items for Christmas. I can smell the delicious aroma of fresh baked cakes.

I also like the smell because I know they will give us those cakes or invite us for dinner.

A bit like smoking, I suppose. It is unhealthy, but......

Wart - Ewww, but, really funny.

DW used to have ceramic domaflitchies that laid on top of the light bulbs in the lamps. They could be filled with whatever. When the bulb was on it heated the whatever and we were on our way.

JayF - I feel bad for your afliction. Do natural smells, pine boughs, oranges, etc. Cause the same reaction.

I really like Uncle Bob's idea best.
