Great article!! I love to use unscented, good quality candles. important info about wicks and beeswax. I have a beeswax shaped like a pineapple. I have used it for many years. I has retained it's shape and does not emit a lot of smoke.
I am highly allergic to scented candles and cannot breath when I am around them. If I was invited to someone's home with scented candles, I would have be forced to leave. Many scented candles have a very strong odor even when not burning. I always recommend to my design client's to used unscented candles. Hosts should ask their guests if scented candles are a problem. Also, if food is served, scented candles odor can get into the food and change the food's taste. Perfume and cologne is a problem for people with allergies too.

What about a candle shade that uses a small votive to look like a pillar?
