    Default Room Scent of the Day - December 2013

    Starting a new month of room scent!

    I am burning a new candle picked up at TJMaxx this week - Nest Bond Street Sandalwood and Sage. I think this is going to be a very subtle one, but will have to give it a few burns.

    That's a great smell to fill a house with especially during the holiday season. Love the cinnamon, nutmeg and sandalwood in it. Have had it in the past.

    Oh, that Russian Nights candle sounds great! Possibly splurge worthy

    I'm burning Colonial Candles Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh this morning for a lazy start to the day.

    It is pretty fantastic! It's good for winter without being too "Christmasy."

    I'm burning another cheapie from Marshalls: Illuminaria African Mahogany No.007 - it's a soft, smoky, woody scent with medium throw.

    Today's candle is Ralph Lauren Holiday. I found a large, 3 wick one at TJMaxx last weekend, and this is a lovely, festive smell. It has plenty of throw, without blasting you out of the room.

    Hi all - I'm back! Today, I've been enjoying my first Rigaud candle, Tournesol.



    It's a very sweet citrus, like a juicy, flowery tangerine mixed with waxy orange rind and a pinch of rose. Usually, really sweet citruses put me off, but this has a judicious hint of mint that goes a long way to give a leafy green undertone to everything.

    Probably a bit summery for such a cold day, but it's making me smile.

    I've really liked all the Ralph Lauren candles I've come across. It's funny because I really dislike their perfumes, but their home collection is clearly manufactured by someone different. NeimanMarcus.com had the 2012 RL Holiday candle on huge discount when the 2013 came in - it sounds like I should have picked one up...

    Yes, this is my first one from RL, as usually I pass them up due to price and exactly what you said about their frags. But this one was more than half price off, so went for it. Juniper, fruit (currant most likely) and evergreen/woods is what I get from this one. Nice and smooth. I highlly recommend it if you can get one on the cheap. Still not sure it is unique enough for full price though

    Burning Aquiesse Winter Currant this morning prior to work so the house smell fabulous and seasonal. This one has moderate throw, but I find they burn so well and evenly that the smaller ones are perfect for a large room. And the throw is really probably appropriate for a soy candle.
