They talk about them like they were scientific inventions. So boring and stupid.
In my town, there is a business vehicle with a logo for some brand of scented candles. When I saw it I scoffed and muttered something about the economy and what an odd choice for a side business. I was told that these scented candles make a lot of money, and that the vendor probably just takes order forms to the office.
So strange because I have the same several scented condles from several years ago. I use them too, on the commode. Beach grass scent. I don't prefer to breathe synthetic chemicals though.
Who are all of these people going through mountains of long lasting big thick candles - enough to support a small town business? This is going on everywhere.
Many of the scented candles I have seen are in the homes of gay men. Are they included in "fraus," or is this exclusively a thread to get the insecure to ridicule someone else, instead of thinking they're the object of ridicule?
Also, blacks are very fond of scented candles. It seems every time there is an apartment fire, it is some black person with scented candles.
The only reason that I can think of that we don't have more frau fires is that they get the Yankee Candles in glass jars.
I think they're sexually repressed and/or they passively aggressively withhold sex from their husbands. Hence, the devotion to scented candles.
What happened to all the wonderful "Yankee Candle haul" videos on Youtube? The used to be posted by grown women and gay adolescent boys, but seem to have slowed to a trickle lately.
That will teach you to hang around the bourgeoisie, you misogynistic pig.
I have a few candles and I find them relaxing, but I've never understood the obsession some people have with them. Some people buy candle after candle and it's like how many fucking candles does someone need? You'd swear some of them don't have any electricity in their home with the way they talk about candles all the time.
They're vile. Just a bunch pleasantly scented delivery devices for formaldehyde, toluene, and benzene.
I won't date anyone who can't live without these (and Glade, etc., too).
Scented candles, picture frames and greeting cards -- very puzzling.
I love scented candles but I'm not "obsessed" with them, they're just nice to have around.
People are always giving me scented candles! Enough already!
Awfully prissy and fussy, eh, op?
Yah, it's not just a Frau thing, OP. Gay men love scented candles too. I have a cat, and he's not messy and doesn't smell, but I don't want my house to smell like cat, or stuffy when I have my windows closed all day in the winter.
I imagine OP's hovel smells like used condoms and meth pipes.
Cheryl dear, people are giving you candles to cover the stench of your stinking pussy.

I always though frau referred to prissy, fussy gay men as well as prissy, fussy straight women.
I don't mind scented candles as long as the scent is mild and not too perfumey or overwhelming. What I really can't stand are those plug-in air freshener things like Glade. Ugh. That shit smells like pure chemicals and gives me a headache.
The worst are people who burn scented candles at the dinner table. So trashy.
I agree, r17. Scented candles should never be used at dinner.
Scented candles, bottled salad dressing, Velveeta, Fritos, bowling...I know what you all like. You're no different than fraus.
I have to admit, I LOVE the Bath & Bodyworks "Merry Cookie" scented candle. It makes my house smell like cookies.
You need a strong scent to wipe out the sour sweaty fat husband smell.
r2 is right: it's ridiculous to pin this on fraus, OP. I know many gay men who have scented candles too.
I used to buy cranberry or cinnamon scented pillars from Wicks 'n Sticks. I also used to put drops of patchoulli oil on my lightbulbs, and burn cinnamon incense cones. I tried draping a shawl over the lamp but I was afraid it would burn. It was my Stevie Nicks period. But I loved my candles.
Shut up, Frau defenders. Your trying to make a gay man = idiot cunt equivalency is transparent.
Fraus love the candles because they're sooooooooo romantic, a perfect visual accompaniment to that Dove bar or a - "I'm soooooooooo bad!! Snort. Snort" - chocolate chocolate fudge death cheesecake, plus they make their bodies look sooooooooooo sexy.
Plus they can squat onto them.
[quote]gay man = idiot cunt
I don't see what's wrong with this equation.
Something tells me that since it's a late night r24 has been hitting the sauce pretty hard.
They make me sick to my stomach and make my sinuses plug up
What idiocy has this thread uncovered? Scented candles as a fetish? What next?
My sister-in-law has a small business selling herbs, potions, homeopathic stuff, incense, knick knacks and, of course, scented candles. 95% of the customers are women.
I like scented candles (well, some scented candles, some are awful). My boyfriend and I will smell them together at various stores. We stop, laugh, and note how incredibly gay we are for being out and about together smelling candles.
Well you know they are just buying them so that when they are soft and pliable from burning a sexy little frau can form them into dildads and have at them. The scent just adds to the fun, since husbands often stink.
"Nice" is not how those stench cylinders smell, R37.
Don't forget, you can use scented candles for many incantations. Just be sure to keep any gauzy, draped fabrics away from the open flame.
My crackpot theory: scented candles contribute to obesity. The ones that smell like sugar cookies or pumpkin pie or birthday cake make the house smell like dessert baking. Which makes the candle owner snacky, which makes her overeat and either get fat or stay fat.
