    Default Candle Snobs

    Does anyone else like candles? I buy them all the time but I HATE when I get home and burn it and it doesn't give off any scent at all.

    Bath and Body Works candles smell to chemical-ly for me. Does anyone have any recommendations for some candles, preferrably all natural that have good scent payoff and burn cleanly? Or if there is a brand that you love, could you post it on here?

    Thanks!

    Yankee candles are too strong for me. They make me light headed so if I burn them, it's only for a short period of time. I tend to really like the Yankee candle tarts, though. I put them in a candle warmer.

    I tend to also like soy wax candles although I don't have any specific brands I recommend. I pick them up at Whole Foods.
