Asked by jaysta_11:

Favorite candle scent?

Anything fruit-scented, particularly anything strawberry and specifically the strawberry patch scent from Bath and Body Works. Of course it's seasonal and it only appears occasionally in their stores, which sucks. There is also this one candle they had this season, I can't remember the name of it, that smells of sunscreen lotion that reminds me so much of swimming. In general, I don't like anything that smells too strong, but is enough that if I would leave it unburned it would fill the room with a nice subtle scent.

I really want to get it, even just a small one, just so I can sniff it from time to time to bring back all the nostalgia.

I don't like vanilla/chocolate-ish scents myself. Fruity is just so nice!

Whaaat? I haven't smelled this lovely sunscreen candle but I do love that smell. It just makes you think of summer and being outside, naturally. They had some watermelon candle last month that smelled JUST like candy. I was sad that I was broke at the time!

More often than not, anything that is supposed to smell like chocolate or vanilla often don't. It's like with those fresh linen scented ones, they kinda do but kinda don't. And anything floral makes me sneeze because they're often far too strong for my nose.

I think the candle is labeled something about the beach, which makes perfect sense. It reminds me so much of going swimming during the summer as a kid (which while I go swimming on the regular now, I use a different kind of sunscreen that doesn't have that familiar scent).

And I'm actually really curious about this moutain lodge scent from Yankee Candle that everyone is raving about. I really do want to see if it smells like a plaid-covered lumberjack or not....
