    I've never tried a high end candle or room spray before. Lately, I've been burning a couple I got from the Body Shop: the sandalwood/ginger one is nice. I've also been using this wax melting thing I got at costco with this nice vanilla spice scent. I've picked up fancy incense from an apothecary before, and that seemed worth it. Normally though we just buy whatever smells nice if we happen to go to Marshall's. As for sprays, it's usually some aromatherapy thing from Whole Foods or the rooms sprays from The Body Shop, in which case, I again prefer the ginger sandalwood scent.

    I've been curious about some high end room sprays and things, but never yet been able to pull the trigger. I'd like a nice reed diffuser though.

    It's funny, I have a bottle of Tam Dao and now that I think of it, I think I'd prefer it as a room spray. I'll have to check out that Ambre one the next time I'm downtown.

    I know quite a few people who like their fragrances so much they double it as a room spray, but personally can't get myself to do it!

    I just sprayed Diptyque- Opopanax, in the room and the air was delightfully scented in minutes. Whereas, I'm pretty sure that if I had sprayed any of the EDTs , the spray droplets would have drifted ineffectively to the floor.

    I have made emergency room freshener on occasion. When I find myself in a stinky public bathroom stall, sometimes I'll spray a shot from one of the vials in my purse onto a scrap of toilet paper. Wave vigorously.

    Tonight my wife decided to try out a new scent - "Cabourg" by Astier de Villatte. A very peppery jasmine smell. Quite nice.

    My daughter picked the Cafe Society by Frederic Malle candle to burn tonight. Interesting choice from a 5-year-old who apparently has exceptional taste!
