Candles

I am a huge fan of lighting scented candles and letting them burn all evening. Every time I light them though my husband complains that he hates the smell and has a headache. I finally thought of a solution...
I took him with me so that he could help pick scents he likes. It actually turned out to be such a fun little adventure. Here's what we ended up with.
Now is the one who lights them!

I posted about pretty much the same thing a few weeks ago! It's so hard to get my husband to agree on a scent for the house. = )

All scented candles give me a headache , I can't even have them in my house un-lit , you are lucky if he can tollerate them now , when i see scented anything I run...

Good choices! Hubby and I disagree on candle scents too, espcially now during the fall! He hates all the cinnamon, apple, fall scents and usually always picks one that smells like a dryer sheet and is called linen or fresh air.

Yummm! I love Yankee Candles! My fav is Pumpkin Pie. I also found some at TJ Maxx I really like that are half the price.

I would so love to try the Autumn Leaves one - I keep wondering if it is like BBW's Leaves scent!

I know what you mean! I LOVE Tyler candles, but the scent I am currently using (vanilla oak) seems to remind my husband of his grandmother's house!!!! UGH, not at all what I want to hear! I'm taking him with me next time, this is a great idea!

I love candles, and I love having them lit all over the house especially in the Fall & Winter! :)

I like how they're all outdoorsy kind of scents. I'll have to try that with my boyfriend, he hates all the vanilla-y ones I have.

I have the same thing going on here - if my hubby doesn't pick them out he complains about the smell! So now I take him too - hilarious!! :)

great idea! we love lighting candles, and always light them for a little bit before guests come over so there's a nice and inviting scent when they walk in and hang out=)!
