Candlelight 101

I love candles. But I like different candles for different reasons. Here are my picks for the best types of candles, depending on what you want them for:

Most Potent Frangrance: This goes hands-down to the Trapp Candle. More specifically, the orange-vanilla Trapp Candle. This thing will make your entire house smell good! It packs a huge punch for such a medium-sized filled candle. I am not a big fan of any of their other scents, but the orange-vanilla is awesome! And they come in a cute cottage-styled box for their packaging.

Best Frangrance: Orange Pomegranate from White Barn Candle Company. I love this fragrance. It's fresh and light but it's also got some depth to it. I think it is only a seasonal item (Fall/Winter) and it comes in a beautiful cream color. It's my favorite scent for a candle.

Best Sound Effects: Of course, it's the Wood Wick candle. We have them in vanilla and in applewood, both of which are wonderful scents, but it's the wick burning that takes center stage on this one. It has a thin wood wick that sounds like you've got a fire burning rather than just a candle. So cool - I love it!

I love candles too! But can't burn any at home because of Steve's sinuses. A few months ago I bought a candle warmer so that I can burn some at the office, because the last time I lit one it caught some paper on fire and then I paniced and knocked a glass of water over and the whole thing was a mess to clean up. My favorite scent is anyting cinnamon.
