But something was missing...
Ambiance for the nostrils. Being a huge candle person (HUGE. My love for candles grows by the second. Don't talk to me about Yankee Candle Company, it just makes me wish I was rich.), I usually have at least one candle burning somewhere in the apartment if I'm home. I like their flicker but I find that they rarely do the trick for smell. I cannot seem to smell them until I'm using them to cut an onion, at which point I always note that the offensive odor of onions combined with the sweet scent of vanilla sugar cookie makes me gag. But I digress.
I'd actually been down this road before: Last time I purchased a knock-off plug-in from WalMart. The original scent was something like Beachy Breeze. But eventually the beachin' breeziness ran its course, and genius cheapskate here thought I would refill it with some rose scented oil I had instead of going out and buying an actual refill.
As it turns out, left over Beachy Breeze and really old rose make a more peculiar pair than onions and vanilla sugar cookie. It took me a week of thinking my husband was smoking and hiding cigars to realize what I had done. Yes, my office now smells like cigars.
So it's back to the drawing board. And this time I want quality AND quantity.
So I turn to Glade.
Who wants $8 a plug-in.
Yes, one arm and one leg for one plug in. I wanted at least two or three but that would make me an indebted paraplegic.
So I turn to eBay. My faithful eBay! I think I eBay everything but perishable groceries. I now have 112 stars. (I brag about those from time to time. The next time you hear about it I'll be up to at least 150.)
Four glade plug-ins for $.99.
Thank you. Thank you.
