...create a lovely atmosphere in the home.

This week I have been burning a Village Candle in the fragrance "Gingerbread Cookie"... is a lovely comforting scent and gives a homely touch to the house. This was a Christmas gift that I hadn't started on yet but certainly was worth the wait. The gentle flickering glow and the scent were just what I needed each evening after some very busy days at work.

Last weekend I bought a new wax melt warmer from the Fragrance Boutique/Naked Flame at Barleylands (see the website here). It has the lovely name of being part of the "Golden Sands" range of accessories. I bought it to replace a lamp in my bedroom as I have quite a bit of 'amber' glass dotted about and thought this would match beautifully (and replace an old table lamp that has seen better days). I'll let you see it at work once I've managed some decent photos (yeh, I know. With my photo skills that could be a while LOL).


Do you have particular fragrances that you prefer?

Do you like floral, food, fruit, spice or fantasy type scents?

Is there a reason for your favourite smells?

I suppose that most of my candles fall into the food/fruit/spice range. I love Christmas scents and this is normally for the hint of spice that they give off creating the 'warm' cosy feel. Food smells can be very comforting and 'homely'. Whilst the fruits can give a bit of a fresh 'zing' to things.

I would love to know if you have preferred scents in your home and what sort of 'feel' they create for you - do share..................................................................
