    I expect to be confined to bed for a few days mid-month, and I've been debating whether I want to wear any of my wardrobe and associate a scent with these days. Instead, I think I'm going to bring in different candles from the bathroom and put them next to the bed unlit for moderate radiance. Nest Tangerine, Nest Apricot Tea, and Disney Yacht Resort are among my favorites.
    I get by with a little help from my (((friends))).

    Oh, and popcorn. Lots of popcorn.

    I hope you recover quickly. Nest has some great offerings.

    hednic, do you use any other Astier De Villatte products such as incense, for example?

    Oh, cool, a new scent! Is it also a gift from your mom? When my candle stash gets depleted I'd like to order from Hazel Candle Company. I like their notes and price point.

    Yes; she actually bought it the same time she bought Morning Brew. Just haven't burned this one much yet. Their candles smell very good for the price, but the throw is mediocre.

    Poor throw? That might be a deal killer.

    Yeah. I feel the same way about candles. You can always buy one of their miniatures to assess it for yourself if you are really curious.

    Didn't update this last night, but I enjoyed "Sweet Frosting" by Yankee Candle during a game of poker. Very, very sweet smelling, but still quite nice.

    This. I have been burning through this one quite quickly lately. I tend to use only one or two candles at a time until I finish them. Maybe if I come across something more expensive I will be more conservative.
