The only scents in candles I can handle are vanilla, coconut, and "pear".

I am sooooo allergic,and can't have most common detergents, can use only Ivory soap bars etc.

I do not use air fresheners. The chemicals are hard on my system, and generally unhealthy I believe....for me anyway.

I can not handle anything lavender smelling. Artifically scents that are not natural kicks off my allergies and asthma.  Even on another person

when i was younger i loved to burn candles. i no longer burn candles for fire safety reasons. I prefer candle scents to air fresheners . air freshers seem to be extremely strong.
my friend gave me a lilac candle for my birthday. I love taking the top off and smelling it! :rose: :pumpkin: :peace: :wave:

As long as the scent is light, I like air fresheners.

Pretty much it is all too strong.  I have had to go to using unscented laundry detergents fabric softeners  as the scented ones are overkill.

I prefer air fresheners, don't have to worry about anything catching on fire from the candles.

I like the scent of real candles and they seem more stronger to keep air fresh

Yes... I love them.
I like Bath & Body works oils that you plug in to the walls.  I like the fir scent for Christmas. I use these all the time... there's an energy one & a stress one that smell great.

I also like the diffusers, with oils & sticks that wick the oil into the air.  I used to use the Fabreeze brand, it was a oil with a wood top that would collect the oil & give off the scent... but they discontinued :(
All my bathrooms have those diffusers currently.

I don't do candles because of the fire hazard issues.

I usually end up with watery eyes and sneezing. So I don't use them.

My wife is pretty heavy into essential oils and so we have a few diffusers in the house with different scents going at different times.  I am more fond of the smell of burning incense than of oils or candles. But whatever floats your boat is my philosophy.


I do know that some of the essential oil aromas have different soothing and calming effects and some even have quasi-medicinal properties.

I like scented candles. Don't really care for the plug-ins or spray fresheners
