yankee candle dandy

Smell is the least pampered of the senses. We usually get a whiff of good smells only by accident – in the bathroom, in the kitchen. But to deliberately create an atmosphere of fragrance by surrounding oneself with sweet or spicy aromas was unheard of until aromatherapy became popular and people realized that scents can set a mood, aid in healing, and promote relaxation.

Among my favorite scent creators are candles. Yankee Candles have a strong throw, last long, and look and smell good.

I’m partial to vanilla, but I also like peppermint. These are some of the Yankee Candles I’ve collected through the years. Apparently several of these “flavors” are discontinued.

The wax and oils are poured into these pretty jars that make an attractive display on tables, bookcases, and mantels. The website also has accessories such as glass shades and metal holders.

Sweet smells make me happy. And I’m all about the happy.

    I wish there was a way to contain smells, though. I remember passing by Lush and feel the olfactory assault. Scents have a lasting impression because our sense of smell, aside from hearing, are one of the most powerful senses (even more powerful than sight).

    Does the smell from these candles really fill a room? I remember lighting scented candles and not much happening.
