OBSESSED

Like pretty much everything in my life, I am uber-picky about candles.  I loathe Yankee Candles...if I want my house to smell like birthday cake, I'll bake a birthday cake and leave the oven open.  And I hate those cutesy pictures on the jars, too.

I like my candles clean and simple.  Nothing to heavily perfumed and i like a plain, glass container with zero graphics.  

While browsing around Williams-Sonoma, I stumbled up their new essential oils collection and this thing of beauty:
OMG I am OBSESSED.  The basil-scented candle is AHHHHmazing.  I bought multiples because I don't live near a WS and was terrified of running out.  I burn these from the moment I get home from work til the moment I hit they hay.  Drop what you are doing and purchase immediately.  You will not be sorry.

I love the Glade candles for the very reason that the Yankee ones seem very kitchen-y to me. I do love some of the Yankee scents [especially at the holidays], but for everyday I am a Glade candle girl.

I'll have to check out the ones at Williams-Sonoma. I haven't been there in way too long!

Oooh, I love candles toos, and i agree that the more basic the better....I burn Gardenia scented ones (plain white) in a hurricane glass, so pretty :)

I am the same way about the Yankee Candles. I do like the cinnamon | Christmas scents, but that is it. I also like a plain, plain jar!! Thanks for this info!!
