I have a very keen sense of smell. The upside to this is I get to enjoy so many fragrant aromas, but the downside is I often have to suffer breathing a host of malodorous scents. What many other people think is fragrant, I find repugnant. Most perfumes give me a headache and the same goes for incense and candles.
I recently read a blog post about what writers use to get in the mood to write romance. Many of them reported a scented candle did the trick, so I decided to give that device a try. I wandered through the candle aisle of the grocery store, sniffing this one and that one, making sure I only tried the soy variety. Read why soy is better to burn than paraffin. None of the flavors lit up my libido until I came to Crisp Cotton. Yes! It smelled like clean sheets and evoked a feeling of lovers rolling passionately in bed. Perfect!
Here I sit, trying to get in the mood to finish my love scene, a smell reminiscent of a chemical toilet wafting through the air. *sigh* It smelled so good in the store. Why do these candles burn with such a strong odor? My search will continue, but until then, I'm capping this candle and will stick to lighting sage when I need to fill the air with fragrance.
