    I enjoy the Sir Elton John candles by Nest.

    I like Evergreen & Cypress the best of the 3 fragrances I have tried so far -- Fireside, Cranberry & Pomegranate, and E&C.

    I have Mango & White Peach, Moroccan Santal, and the Holiday candle left to try. I have also seen a Hazelnut & Praline fragrance, but that one did not appeal to me.

    I have been burning two 8-ounce candles concurrently, and that seems to fill the house.

    I think the Fireside candle is also very special, and I enjoy the fragrance very much, but it seems to make my throat hurt when I burn it. It would certainly be worth a sniff, though, if you were to encounter one.

    BTW: Some of you may actually be familiar with these candles and fragrances, as I understand that they were once produced by Slatkin and sold at Bath & Body Works. I guess I was not a shopper of BBW at that time, and missed this line, but I am enjoying them by Nest.

    Today I am burning Myrrhe by Diptyque.
    Not my favorite fragrance from Diptyque, but it is pleasant and has a great throw.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on these.

    You've convinced me to purchase a few! I've seen that Hazelnut & Praline too - definitely not my kind of home fragrance!

    Default Room Scent of the Day - December 2013

    Burning Marron Grillè (Roasted Chestnut) by Bougie La Francaise in my sister in law's house.... :

    Hednic I do envy your Astier de Villatte collection! I had the chance to smell some of them in Dijon, some days ago and they are great! I liked Stockholm a lot...

    I'm burning Nest Bond Street Sandalwood and Sage, and also Scentsational Sage in another room. This "fills the house" as Hednic would say, but I have a small house. Both of these are soy candles, but the Scentsational has a nice throw. I like this combo.

    I'm burning Bond No 9 New Haarlem today. Notes: lavender, bergamot, green leaves, coffee, cedarwood, amber, vanilla, tonka, patchouli

    The scent and the throw is incredible.

    Love the Nest Bond Street Sandalwood & Sage!

    The selection for today in my home is Ralph Lauren Alpine Coast, which is a poor name considering the notes consist of orange, gingerbread and nutmeg.

    Some lime-scented room candles, not branded and nothing famous, but bringing a homely and comforting note during this holiday season.
