The Smell of Candles




via Daily Prompt: Candle

Am I the only that is transported to childhood whenever I smell candles? I had an aunt who simply LOVED candles.  She loved the way they made the whole smell, she loved the way the gentle light created shadows that played on the walls, and she loved that she could burn them for hours.

I, however, do NOT love candles. The smell usually makes my eyes burn, and if the light makes me sleepy. I love the memories I have when I see smell them or when I see them, but I don’t like open flames, and so, it’s one of those things that I appreciate when I visit someone, but not something that you will find in my house.
