Agree......no fragrances in the house or on the realtor for that matter. Those with a chemical sensitivity would not be able to peruse the house or approach the realtor without being sickened.

My husband and I went to look at a house last week-end. The house was spotless, but the scented vanilla smell was overwhelming. When we got to the kitchen we saw the candle burning. Couldn't finish the tour. I agree- I just want the house to smell clean.

NEVER leave scented candles in your home burning!!! You may come home to no home at all to sell!!!
