My girlfriend has furnished our place with candles from Bath & Body Works. They actually smell pretty good and I don't mind letting her burn them. I think they are called Slatkin & Co., just make sure to smell them before buying.
Tell her to get a tart burner. Then buy those Better Homes and Gardens/Scentsationals from WalMart. $2 each, you burn two cubes at a time and they are way nicer scentwise than BBW. If she does get a burner, get the bulb kind and swap the 25w bulb for a 50w.
Tons of scent options, safer than a candle, better scent "throw" and cheaper. Can't beat it.
She can also search Etsy.com for people who make amazing homemade tarts (candles also, if she wants to stick with candles).
My wife says yankee are no good - What are some better candles? and where to get them?
I like Bath and Body works candles alot. I think the maker is Slatkin & Co. I love the 14.5 oz. One of those candles lasted a whole month and I lit it every day for about 4 hours. I also like that it burns to almost the very bottom and you can clean out the container it came in and use it store stuff like cotton balls, Q-tips etc. But check the reviews at bathandbodyworks.com, some of the candles don't burn all the way down, but the good thing is you can return a used candle if you are not satisfied. Also check the bath and body works thread, there is always a coupon floating around and sales and specials.
I second the Bath and Body Works candles. If she doesn't like Yankee Candles, she will definitely love the Bath and Body Works ones because they smell much differently. The minis are on sale 2 for $5 right now if you want to get her a couple small ones to try them out, but the 3 wick large candles are the best! http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/c...63.4090366
