Village candles are by far better than Yankee candles/Bath and Body Work candles. They are so strong, they're worth every penny. They're kind of pricey, so I try to buy them when they're on sale at Price Chopper. Yeah, you heard that right! Price Chopper! They're the only place I know that sells them! The warm apple pie is one of my favorite scents! Such a cozy, warm scent that fills the house. My fiancé always thinks I'm baking, but really it's the candle!
