    I spend far too much time and money there lol
    Our local garden centre does yankee candle range and it is beautiful at Christmas. However Stephen is banned from handling them as he managed to break a huge jar of Christmas pine scent candle and the entire shop smell like a pine scent toilet bleach. I kid you not!!

    You've reminded me of a time when I bought one the pine scented jars, I was trying to convince Chris that we could have an artificial tree and if we used the jar it would smell like a real one He walked in and asked if I'd bought a different toilet cleaner because it was a bit strong smelling.

    Needless to say, we still have a real tree every year









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    I've tried that too, Wendy; using an artificial pine scent for Christmas. I've found that bay candles do a better job! I cannot stand the smell of Pine-Sol (that's the predominate pine scented cleaner here). It's overwhelming and nasty. My Grandmother used to use it. Blergh.

    I like the smell of some artificial scents but truly prefer to use flowers, or even spices. I love candles though. I have a candlestick collection that rivals any spooky house! Well, maybe not that bad. They are overwhelming with tapers in all of them at once though, so I only put the tapers in when we are actually going to use them.

    Whew. I can get OFF TOPIC can't I?

    Thank you for replys all and the list as to where I can get my fix. I can breath again and hubby can remove the smirk from his face . On their FB was told due to rental agreements but also read article saying its up for sale.

    We visited the Deerfield flagship store, wow I was like a kid in a candy shop . For those flying you can take in your hand luggage as long as not gel. We take wheeled carry on and I can fit rather a lot in there. Well buy two get two free coupons how could I not :wink:

    The hand luggage is a good idea!

    Ick I hate the outdoorsy scents. They seem to set off my allergies as well. I tend to go with fruity scents. Though I do like the white chocolate mint at Christmas. Pink Sands is a current favorite at the moment.

    Somehow I've developed an allergy to real Christmas trees so we no longer have them noticed we have a shop in town selling YC the other day!

    I have a hard time with perfumes of any kind, but can manage some herbal type scents. I particularly like lavender.
