They smell lovely when you sniff them, but the odour given off when they burn is totally different and rank. See also joss sticks.

I have just spent a vast amount of money on a candle that smells like a wood fire. I hope she likes it!

I have a wood fire that smells like a candle!

I do like those essential oil evaporator things though. Lavender with a touch of eucalyptus is nice.

Unless it's an open fire I'd get it looked at pronto, Laz.

I tried one recently but didn’t care for it. Reed diffusers can be quite nice though.

Do you find people lighting scented candles regularly when you visit, fender?

Once again, they give me asthma. Strangely, essential oils don't, as a rule. I've taken to just putting unlit sandalwood incense in the bathrooms. That's very nice.

Heh!

God, I hate the blessed things.

People mainly use them to disguise the smell of pets don't they.

I was inferring you pong

I know what you were doing, but I'd probably say that you were implying it...

Whatever happened to pot pourri? Did it go the way of avocado bathroom suites?

Rats. He caught it before my deletion!

FleurDuMal - 19 Dec 2018 12:22:23 (#15 of 38)

Good ones - Jo Malone or Diptyque - are nice, but the cheap supermarket ones are rank.

enidcoleslaw - 19 Dec 2018 12:22:37 (#16 of 38)

True Grace are also VG.

HoHoHoff - 19 Dec 2018 12:24:14 (#17 of 38)

Cheap ones are probably synthetic perfumes too, like those godawful aerosol de-pongers.

Health and safety nightmare, mind you...

I find it a funny thing to worry about*. Just use them if you want or don't use them if you don't want to. Nobody cares. Except people who care far too much about these things.

* Unless they give your asthma.

I remember coming home once and being greeted by the odour-of-death of a scented candle. I said to Mrsbb: "Has your mother been round?"
