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!!!

I love vanilla fragrance, it is the most adored aroma in the world - scientifically proven. Allergic people have problems with cleaners too, or they sometimes just smell bad. So, it is ok to clean few days earlier and to burn a candle few hours before buyer comes. Intensive smell is not healthy even to healthy people, nor is the perfume women use.
