sometimes, nothing's better than spending a saturday evening quietly at home, especially after a hectic week of work.  i just want to wind down, recuperate, gain back my true self and breathe... and to enjoy the serenity. it is more relaxing than going to the spa, having treatments, etc, as i would not want to talk to or entertain others during such relaxing moments.  what's even better is to fill up the house with aroma.  my favorite is vanilla and i prefer scented candles to fragrance oil cos i like catching the shadow of the dancing candle flame...  and i think candles are more romantic...  i like the smell of vanilla cos it is rich in flavor but not overwhelming, sweet but not as strong as those fake flowery scents...  and of course it comes in my favorite color: cream.  the best one i have had has the scent of vanilla + mint...  the mint threw in a bit of freshness.. it is a pity that the store doesn't carry it anymore....
