Friend Makin Monday

Today's topic for Friend Makin' Monday is...

What are your favorite candles/scents?

I feel like it was picked just for me because I absolutely love candles!!! Yankee Candles to be exact. I own over 20 of them and light them everyday. It's an obsession. In fact I'm going next weekend to buy more so I'm curious to read about all of your favorites - perhaps I will have to try them out. Alright on to my list:

#1 fav. scent right now
is Jack Frost. It's a sweet peppermint.


Red Apple Wreath is a forever holiday favorite of mine. I enjoy all scents related to apples or wreaths/Christmas trees and this is a lovely combo.


These swirly ones are so much fun! I really want the Holiday Garland.

Buttercream is so yummy and works all year round.


Fresh Cut Roses reminds me of my Grandma. It's my favorite comfort candle.


And of course Garden Sweet Pea is practically perfect in the spring and summer time. I've put it away for the year and I miss it already.

Apparently, I need to go visit Yankee Candle - I haven't smelled most of these! I'm a fan of holiday scents, too, so maybe I'll make a pilgrimage to the mall this week! :)

Jack Frost sounds like one I'd enjoy. Great List!

Rebecca Jo said...

There is nothing like a Buttercream Yankee candle!!!!

Roses are my other favorite scents from Yankee...

I've never seen the swirl candle before... going to have to try that out!

Jack Frost is one I haven't smelled yet but it sounds great! I like Yankee Candles too but I haven't had the $$ to buy any lately.

Holiday garland sounds great! I really miss having a real Christmas tree and I love the smell of pine.

HAPPY FMM!

I love, love, love, candles!! Unfortunately my broke ass can not afford the luxuries of Yankee CAndle :(...I so do absolutely love all the scents on your list. Usually I go to Khols they have these amazing smeeling candels that are more to my pocket level, they are called "For Everybody" they are absolutely heaven sent! I highly recommend them :)....

Jack Frost sounds like a lotion scent that I have that is a peppermint, but sweet too. I've seen Buttercream on a couple FMM lists - I may have to check that one out!

Yankee candles, no matter what the scent is, reminds me of the holidays. What would Xmas be without a wreath candle. Love your blog sweetie and I'm so glad I found you. Come stop by for a slice of San Francisco...
