Scented Candles

I'm not really big on scented candles. I hate walking past the candle store's open door at the mall. However, sometimes find myself in a candle shop or even the Yankee Candle Factory .

Trying to keep myself amused, I began wondering why there is a host of fruit and flower scents but no savory food scents.

I'm talking about Roast Thanksgiving Turkey scented candles, or Pot Roast candles. How about BBQ or lasagna scented candles?

Is there an anti-foodie conspiracy?

What savory food scented candle would you buy? If any.

Great idea Andy. The first one that comes to my mind is BACON.

Lasagna would be a good one or chicken pot pie.

There are pumpkin, but I don't suppose they would be savory, unless it was pumpkin soup.

sorry... but I think I'd stick to the sweet ones. Apple pie, vanilla, butter cream and strawberry are some of my favorites... oh.. wait how about fresh baked bread?

I bought some beautiful sandalwood candles to go in the rack that is in front of my fireplace - tall pillar candles, medium and short. BUT, I couldn't stand the smell of them burning. They smell great when they aren't burning. So they sit there looking great and I burn others scents for the aroma.

I can't burn candles much at all because of my asthma but I love the citrus-rosemary and melon-herb combos that Yankee Candles has (I forget the exact name of both). They smell very fresh and clean.

I like the idea of a pot pie or bread scented candle.
