    Has anyone tried La Luz candles before? I see a sale on them, 20oz for $14 CAD which seems a good deal to me. That's bigger than Slatkin's 3 wick size. The sale has them cheaper than their...

    Re: Sweetest fragrances you have ever smelled?

    No, Eau fruitee is the sweetest. The delices in EDP is the least sweet but still too much for most BNers I would guess.
