There's very little we dislike more than a strongly scented candle. The words "Spring Breeze" and "Citrus Bouquet" inspire headaches before the smell of the offending candles even hit our nostrils.
We don't mind a subtle vanilla or very, very light jasmine ... but, other than that we'd probably just as soon fill our homes with unscented candles.
And Go Green Candles, a new green candle company based in the Pacific Northwest, is specializing in just that. How smart.
Because, in our minds, the most beneficial and beautiful thing about a candle is it's soft light -- and soft light can be easily overshadowed by a hideous scent. Don't do it!
You can get a hand-poured, palm wax Go Green Pillar Candle for $12 or a Votive Gift Set for $15. They burn clean and they're wrapped with recycled labels and hemp cord.
