    Root Candles makes a scent called Blackberry Mango that I like. I am not generally a 'candle person' but I received several of their products in a gift basket someone gave me. I put the Blackberry Mango candle (un-lit, obviously :cool1) in my linen closet to give the towels a nice, soft scent.

    I prefer fresh scents, like cotton or fresh linen. Brand doesn't matter one bit.

    I like a good Yankee candle. This is my Christmas stash. I also have a few big jars around the house in use at the minute too.

    I usually get baking type scents like vanilla or sugar cookie. For Christmas one of my friends got me a scent called "winter" which I am really liking--even though more "earthy" than "baking."

    I usually buy Yankee brand because they last forever.

    I prefer Yankee candles too, especially Sun & Sand, Autumn Leaves and Clean Cotton. They have an on-line sale right now with some big reductions.

    I usually go with the Vanilla Scented Yankee Candles unless I see a great sale on another brand.

    I do love the Cinnamon Scented ones too.

    On my way to check that out. :byebye:

    I have a stash of yankee candles also I always liked Yankee, however, I am finding now that when I burn them certain aggravate my allergies. I have a lemon jar candle that to me doesn’t even smell like lemon and makes my nose itch. So I have shelved it.

    I’m in the process of switching candles to different brands like scentsational and sand & fog. I don’t know where you are located but if you go to stores like homegoods tjmaxx and Marshall’s you can get yankecandles at a good price ($12.99 or $14.99 for a large jar)compared to almost $30 elsewhere.

    When they have sales it’s great. Otherwise it’s expensive. See my response to Alexis. You can get tgem cheaper all the time.

    My favourite is Yankee Vanilla & Lime. When you're in the store, who can walk past the display of Yankee jars, without unscrewing the lid and having a sniff ?! I bought a chocolatey one once that smelled horrid in store, but it was reduced in price so I bought it anyway. It actually had a lovely smell when burning. Didn't half make me hungry though.

    I bought one of those football shaped easymelt cup things, in a January sale, about 5 yrs ago. I thought it would be good for using up the wax from the bottom of the jars. I still haven't taken it out of the box.:oops:
    What do you do with the empty glass jars? It seems a shame to throw them in the recycling bin, given the price of them, and they look nice.

    I tend to use the Yankee vanilla lime plugin versions nowadays.
