According to Hindu Prince Guatama Siddharta, founder of Buddhism, "Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared." Wise words from a very wise man! Smell is one of the most powerful senses, and the human response to a pleasing fragrance is positive and immediate. Not only are candles beautiful to look at, they create an atmosphere of romance, mystery, comfort and warmth. And today, fragrance-enhanced candles are the top choice by consumers when it comes to scenting the home.
