So one of my very favorite compliments I get when someone enters my home is, "Oh your house smells sooooooooo good". This makes me beyond happy!
Reason 1- It's good to make someone happy
Reason 2- It's always nice to hear something kind about your home
Reason 3 (and most important)- It justifies my obsession with scented candles! I always turn to Dan and give him that "told you so" grin.
I really am OBSESSED with candles. It started with my long lost best friend in Utah, Malin Thomas (I miss her)... she was completely obsessed with Salt City Candles and her obsession turned into my obsession. I'll always remember Malin's house smelling like Sunflower.
After we moved to California, my obsession continued and lo and behold I found another BFF, Michelle, who is addicted to them as I am. We always laugh that one of our great pleasures is to have a cupboard filled with scented candles just ready to burn when needed. Michelle's house is another house that ALWAYS smells amazing. When I think of Michelle's house and how it smells, I'm always reminded of Welcome Home. Michelle recently introduced me to a new fab brand of candles called Gold Canyon. They are sooooooo good too!
Now, as luck would have it my life long BFF, Minette, became a sales person for Salt City Candles! What are the odds? Heaven I tell you! No more ordering online! Now I can honestly say that Minette is the best ever spokesperson for the candles. Her house is ALWAYS smelling delicious and is so bright and white and fresh. When I think of Minette's home, I instantly think of Honey Cotton. Her home is so bright and white and fresh.
I would be remiss if I left my mom out of this Stroll Down Scented Candle Lane. I don''t think I ever enter my mom's home when a delicious candle isn't burning. She a little different though... she's a connoisseur of all candle brands. She'll try them all, but thinks that Salt City are the best! When I think of my Mom's house I immediately think of Pumpkin Spice.
Now for me... I'm very fickle when it comes to scents. I'll try most, but usually stay away from the floral, pine or woodsy scents.
In summer I love the citrus and tropical ones.
In fall I adore all the pumpkin, cookie, apple ones.
In winter I love all the peppermint, cranberry, or wassil scents.
Springtime has me loving all the rain, cotton, soft smelling scents.
As of right now what's burning in my house?
In my family room... Pineapple Coast.
In my office... Canary Island Banana.
In Scarlet's room... Cranberry Autumn.
In the kitchen... America's Garden.
In my bedroom... Juicy Orange.
In my boy's bathroom... Lemon Ginger Coconut
So... what's your very favorite candle company and scent? I'd love to try something new...
