Crazy for Candles!

I love candles! I really can not get enough of them as I am completely obsessed with smell and scents. Here are some of my all time favorites. (The list is actually much longer, but I figured I should truncate it.. for the sake of not making this post a novel)

1. Nest Moss Mint: This retails for about $34 (mini is $15) and can be purchased on or Its a light, refreshing scent that will freshen up the entire house. I know I cook a lot and this really helps eliminate those cooking odors. It may be a little pricey but definitely worth the money if you want a great staple candle for your home.

2. Diptyque Baies: The Diptyque candles are actually very popular and very expensive. These retail for about $60 (for the large size) and about $30 for a mini candle. Baies is a berry-perfumed scent which makes your home smell without it being lit! I know I usually prefer cleaner scents, but this berry doesn't give you a headache 20 minutes later and smells like a luxurious and light perfume. It's a great gift and stocking stuffer for the holidays as well. This can be purchased at and

3. Voluspa French Lavender and Cade: This may be my favorite yet. It's a very clean, linen scent.. I would probably pair it with Nest Moss and Mint. Light and Refreshing. This retails for about $26 for a large jar, $18 for a medium jar, and $12 for a mini. Can be purchased on

4. DW Home Vanilla Bean: I'm a huge vanilla candle fan but am very picky. I don't like a strong buttery vanilla scent (e.g. cake batter, etc...) but prefer something lighter. This is it! It retails for about $7.99 for the large jar and can be purchased at any Home Goods or Marshalls location. Ironically, Harris Teeter (if you live in the South) as well. Make sure you stock up if you see these because inventory is never guaranteed. If you want a great vanilla scented candle, this one may be it!
