Scented products...are you a fan?
Haylen_WebMD_Staff posted:
The article I read about 4-D movies (which can puff out smells to the audience) made me think about how sensitive I am to smells.

I went to a friends house yesterday and she had a plug in air freshener. Maybe it was just that particular smell (lavender) but I hated it! Couldn't wait to get out in the fresh air - if Los Angeles air can be considered fresh - ha, ha!

I don't use any kind of smell in my house except for a vanilla candle once in a while.

How about you - do you use fabreeze, scented candles or potpourri, bathroom sprays or other types of smell-good products in your house?

I do not like those plug in type /glade type air freshners. They are horrible. I do like scented oils and candles but not a strong overpowering type scent.
I do love perfumes /colognes ect. but not if they are strongly applied.
But I do have a very strong sense of smell . My late DH used to always wonder how in the world I smelled something that took him forever to smell. So I am always around sniffing to make sure stuff doesn't stink..haha!

With 3 children under 6 in our house, we have a lot of smells! j/k.

But seriously, I prefer the smell of the dryer after a fresh load of aundry or the faint smell after the dishwasher has ran. I really love the smell of our hardwood floor cleaner.

Ava has gotten into a candle kick. She has to buy everyone a candle for whatever the current occassion. I got one for Mother's Day, DH got one for Father's Day. I like candles because you can turn them off. Not a fan of all the Glade type stuff. Sprays give me the heebies, I can just see my kids breathing in that stuff!

I'm sensitive to scents so we don't use any scented products in our house.

I hate scented sprays. Febreeze is the only one I can stand. The rest of them make me want to gag.

Cristopher is very sensitive to scents. We don't use them in our house. Perfume and cologne are even iffy for him. I love scented candles but we can no longer use them.

I lost my sense of smell about 3 years ago so I don't even notice any more what anything smells like.

I don't mind scents in my home but I don't like flowery scents. I like vanilla, apple cinnamon. I mostly use these in our bedroom or private bath. And there is nothing like a clean bathroom smell.
