Oh how I love a sweet smelling house, especially this time of year.
These are my favorites.
Orleans Cinnamon Orange Candle
I first discovered Orleans Cinnamon Orange candles at a Christmas Shop in Plano, while visiting our youngest daughter who lives in Dallas.
I almost swooned.
That’s a great word, isn’t it?
After all, my nickname, originally given to me years ago by my friends JB and Debbie,
is Laura Belle-
or Belle for short.
Swooning is my game.
Slatkin and Co. Leaves Candle
This is my all-time, bar none, favorite candle.
I bought this at Bath and Body Works, which I always want to call
Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
The scent is pretty strong, but I am not really into delicate…
Pier One’s Asian Spice
This is an all-time favorite.
My friend Anna and I can have an entire conversation about
You must try it ( particularly the room spray).
It is also affordable.
Claire Burke’s Original Vapourri
I love this room spray because my mother used this.
It makes your house smell wonderful.
You may not recognize the packaging shown (I didn’t), but it is still the same fragrance.
A few minutes before a get-together at my house, I like to open the front door and spray outside.
I kid you not.
Then people smell it as they reach the front door.
This perfume is not new or modern but once again,
I love it because my mother wore it.
In fact, for a long time after she passed away,
I wore her robe because it smelled like her.
It smelled of Clinique Elixer.
Aromatique’s The Smell of Christmas
I can’t live without this.
I stockpile candles, room spray, and bags of potpourri at after Christmas sales.
I am hoarding some small bags of simmering potpourri, which they apparently don’t make anymore.
I am desperate.
It is bagged in tiny cotton sachet bags.
If you see it anywhere, just email me.
