Worshippers at the temple of Solas
Ok so I have an observation.
When I first started working for the Humane Society, they were doing a Yankee Candle Sale as a way of raising money. Being the good volunteer that I am, I purchased one of the products (a bag of simmers). They had been sitting unused until a week or so ago when I was cleaning and I asked Len what scent he'd like me to put in. He suggested peach, which happened to be one of the YC ones.
Now, before I found Solas, that was all I used to buy and I *though* they smelled pretty good and had a long range of scent -- I used to use them in the kitchen at my old house. Here I sit the simmer on the small half wall between the kitchen and living room.
So I put it in and went on. About 45 minutes later I went to check on it because I couldn't smell anything. It was burning ok. I guess I'm spoiled because I can smell my Solas Candle simmers ALL OVER the house. I couldn't even smell this one unless I was standing right over it.
I'm terribly spoiled. I switched back the next day. At least the money went to charity ;)
