    Unusually we don't have any buring at the moment (we have a chocolate fondue melting at the mo!)

    However at the moment in position are

    Kitchen - Vanilla Cupcake, Chocolate Cupcake, Sweet Strawberry, Pineapple Citrus, Starfruit and orange
    Lounge - jack frost, island spa, vanilla lime and various vanilla ones
    Bedroom - Midnight jasmine
    Hall - Tahitian Tiare Flower in a beautiful burner my friend bought us for Christmas

    That really is a ridiculous number on the go! Needless to say we only light 1 per location at a time - I just like a choice!

    It's just as well they're not as we seem to be going throught them at the moment (admittedly a lot are samplers as they had '12 for the price of 8' in the Florida Mall - what's a girl to do!)

    Well you all probably know thatI have an endless supply of them ;) and I have quite a few at home, but a lot more at the shop.

    Tahitian is now retired, as is Country Linen, Creme Brulee and Shortbread cookie.

    Maddie - You might like to try the new Pacific Coconut from the world journeys range, that is quite a bit stronger than the Coconut Bay one.

    Addicts anyone????????????? :)

    Home Sweet Home in the hall and conservatory. Mixing Autumn Leaves and Red Apple Wreath in the living room as I'm trying to use them up...

    Pacific Coconut sounds lovely...

    I currently have Granny Smith (apples) which has been burning in the lounge all night. Others I have on the go are Creme Brulee, White Chocolate Mint, Cafe au Lait & Tangerine.

    My all time favourite has to be Cinnamon stick.....you'll think I'm crazy but it reminds me of Orlando. Churros to be precise! ;)

    I have Sandalwood at the moment in the living room which seems boring compared to what others are burning.

    I love the midnight Jasmine but the shop i was getting it from has stopped doing it. :sad2:

    I've still got a jar of 'Home for the Holidays' in my back room. Then in the front room I've got a 'Jack Frost' one along with a lovely one (sorry I've forgotten the name) that Nat brought back from NY :)

    I am into candles and have them all over the house. On a night we have candles lit all over the lounge, however, I have never bought any Yankee candles. I have bought scented ones before and love them.

    Do you find that the Yankee candles have a lot better scent than other scented candles? Do you consider them worth paying the extra cash for?
