Speaking of candles, I have two rather large soy ones that my stepson's girlfriend gave me for Christmas. The sandalwood and vanilla one sounds candley, but I'm not sure about the willow and fig one. Sounds a bit like something you'd spread on cheese.
They're going to be regifted anyway as I don't use them. *note to self, don't give them to stepson's girlfriend*

Scented candles are the bane of my life. It's the sort of thing people give as presents. I have a giant vanilla-scented one in a jar that I was given. I think I'll leave it outside for someone to grab.

Put it in an Amazon box, it'll be gone before you close the door.

I don't know what annoys me more; her selling her crap or people buying it.
