Poll: Candle Scents in your home

Since we enjoy the scents of cooking in the kitchen, I'm curious as to which scents you fill the rest of your home with.

You can choose as many or as few as you'd like.

i voted for all of them that i enjoy, but there's a few that i hate. our house used to be full of scent making candles and other devices, to the point i couldn't take it anymore. vanilla and fruit/berries are my faves. currently, there is a pear candle, and a mountain rain candle in the living room.

pine can smell ok as a candle, but if it's incense, it smells like christmas gone horribly wrong with the tree on fire.

i hate spice, especially cinnamon. it gives me a dry throat for some reason, and then i can smell it all day, even after i've left the house.

citrus smells too much like industrial cleaning fluid.

I don't get to burn candles much. DH doesn't like any kind of perfume like smells.

I leave the candle burning to my wife so whatever falvors she buys is what we have. I much prefer the smell of our wood burning stove.

This is my dirty little secret - I burn yankee candle tarts every day -- only the yankee candle brand and usually only the tarts. I do have some large jar candles that I received as gifts that I burn sometimes. My favorite scents are clean cotton and sunwashed linen - very clean smelling, like downy. Midnight Summer is very strong - I like that one too. My holiday favorites are farmhouse apple and hollyberry. I spend a small fortune on wax, but it is the small things in life that make us smile .

They really are the best candles. I have burned them for years - I like the tarts because of the low soot (had to repaint my ceilings once, not fun!) Girlfriend, I go nuts when they are on sale, which is hardly ever. Usually at the end of the year they have a big sale.
