PAB,

Is it the scent going through the air, or the actual burning of the candle that bothers your asthma? If it is the burning, maybe you could do what a friend of mine does. She puts candles that are in a jar on a coffee warmer. The room smells great, and she doesn't ever light it. The wax melts and remelts and lasts a long time.

Unfortunately, it's the scent. Anything strong smelling, like lotions, perfumes, etc will trigger an episode. I love the coffee warmer idea, though. I have a friend who works in an office that doesn't have the best smell so this is a great idea for her since they're not allowed to burn candles.

personally i'd stick with the sweet scents i.e. vanilla, cherry, mulberry etc...
but if i had to i think i'd choose a candle that smelled like a roast.

i can't remember where, probably one of the thousands of candle shops in pennsylvania that i've been to over the years, but i have seen some savory scented candles, like bbq, roasted garlic, and the like. i don't think they were big sellers.
the worst one that i've ever bought was balsam fir incense, ya know, supposed to smell like a christmas tree.
well, the problem lies in the fact that you have to light it. then it smells like a christmas tree on fire! kinda like a kids christmas morning nightmare. oh, the presents, oh the humanity...
