    In the kitchen I've got some Orange Spiced Tea wax melting and in my den I have Warm Pipe Tobacco burning.

    Even on the cabbage-less days, simmering spices can really hit the home fragrance spot!

    I was very impressed with the packaging and the scent. The throw is best suited for a small room I think.

    Today I'm burning Nest Fragrances Candle Moroccan Santal by Sir Elton John.

    I'm imagining your hallway smells delicious!

    Very early this morning I dusted off my Lampe Berger and used an oil in it from Lah Tee Da called Sugar Crumbles for about an hour or so. It left a nice, light, sweet scent throughout my apartment. Then about a half hour ago I stupidly lit a Zodax candle in Vanilla Bark. Too much!!! Why didn't leave well enough alone? I don't want to snuff the candle yet; I'm afraid it will tunnel if I do. But there's just so much sweet I can take. I've got the windows open and fear I am scenting a good part of my block.

    Can you give me any sense of what "patinated wood" smells like to you?

    Diptyque Myrrhe, just purchased at the brand new Diptyque store in Milan. Fabulous as ever, my very first niche candle and my absolute favourite

    In case someone else is interested: I wasn't impressed by the Christmas ones! . Pine Bark is just like Sapin Doré; Orange Chai smells only citrus; the Incense one is too heavy on roses... The jars are beautiful, though.

    Sorry, but I am at a loss. I think it's probably a made up name for a synthetic oil. Although I can't really tease out that note from the others, as a whole the fragrance does conjure up the air of a club for rich old dudes sipping on spirits and kicking back on antique furniture, but without the cigar smoke and leather.

    That brings to mind a discontinued candle by Jimmy Belasco called Sexe that I used to burn frequently. It had amber, plumeria, cocoa, myrrh, ylang-ylang and limon. It was so good! I wish he still made candles. Does your incense seem to have similar notes Tony?

    I'm using my Lampe Berger again this morning with Lah Tee Da Sugar Crumbles oil.

    Burning Aquiesse Winter Currant again this morning. This one burns very evenly, and smells wonderful, although I believe the throw lacks a little bit. It is nice for one room though.
    Notes: rich red currant, cassis, sparking citrus, and deep french oak - per the box.
