SheFinds Solutions: Summer Scents

May 3, 2006 by Hayley

Problem: I want my apartment to say “I’m fresh, breezy, and clean,” not “Come in and enjoy the mildew.”

Solution: One of my biggest fears is bringing someone back to my apartment after a nice “dinner and a movie” combo, having them sniff and say “What’s that smell?” Incense are nice if you live on a commune and don’t have asthma. Spray scents can smell antiseptic. I keep a plethora of scented candles on hand for whenever the mood should strike me (or before a hot date). Fragrant candles are like the ideal perfume, subtly intoxicating. Summer’s almost here and that means open windows and balmy nights. My favorite warm weather candles are [url=http://www.zanadia.com/Voluspa-Seasons-Aroma-Candlepot-in-Summer-product-3147.aspx target=”new”]Volupsa’s Summer[/url] which is made with rose petals and grenadine, [url=http://www.relaxdepot.com/product/Nyakio-Mombasa-Candle.html target=”new”]Nyakio’s Mombasa Candle[/url], created with the beauty of African beaches in mind, and [url=http://www.pacificacandles.com/vietnamese-ylang.asptarget=”new”]Pacifica’s Vietnamese Ylang-Ylang[/url], a seductive combination of vanilla, French lavender and, of course, ylang-ylang. For portable scents that pack a punch, head to [url=http://www.redflower.comtarget=”new”]Red Flower[/url] and pick up a mini candle in [url=http://www.redflower.com/?page=shop/marigold-sm.html&cart_id=3421070_71168target=”new”]Chinese Marigold[/url]. Be prepared – your home will smell so good, your guests may never want to leave.

Price: Voluspa Summer Candle, $20; Nyakio Mombasa Candle. $27; Pacifica’s Vietnamese Ylang-Ylang $7.95 – $34.95; Red Flower Chinese Marigold Mini $12
