Out of the main bustle of the Coffee shop this is where people gather to share recipes and tips/tricks.

The trouble with scented candles is that you have to supervise candles so have to stay in the same room - I flit about too much to do that! I would love a posh cooker hood though.

I treated myself to some Jo Malone cologne last year, something I had dreamed of for a while. I entertained myself at Heathrow whilst waiting for a plane by having the assistant try every available combination on me and then dithering about the final choice. It gives me more pleasure than a candle would - and appears to have been cheaper!

Was anyone watching Beyond 100 Days this evening?
The presenters were discussing a scented candle, for only S55 you could have one that was evocative of Scottish moss.
Sadly it was emblazoned Trump.

The problem with scented candles for me is simply that they are scented

It doesn’t matter if they are expensive and nicely fragrances, after a while I find it annoying, I no more want a constant powerful background smell than I want background noise or a vivid pattern all over everything.

I do have scented flowers in the house, but usually the kind you just get a whiff of occasionally, not something that’s constantly loud

i'm not sure a trump scented candle would be a big seller.

I am sure I couldn't bear a vanilla candle in my flat, too sickly maybe, but I was given a gingerbread scented Yankee candle for Christmas and it is still going strong and smells like I have cake in the oven when I light it. Yum. :chops:
