Poisonous Candles + Roja Dove At The Wellcome Collection

I hope you're all behaving yourselves while I'm catching up on my summer reading. I'm just breaking my cyber-silence for a few moments to let you know that an article I wrote about a recent Roja Dove lecture in London has been published on Basenotes; please click here to be taken to it.

And whilst I'm posting links, I thought some of you might be interested in this piece from the UK's Daily Mail which claims that some perfumed candles could be as toxic as cigarettes. Have a read and - once you've recovered from the sexist headline - let me know what you think.



  1. I had heard that burning incense in a closed room is bad, but hadn't thought about candles.
    Cheap candles smell exactly that to me - cheap. So I buy Diptyque etc. I thought I was just being a perfumista snob, maybe I'm being healthy, too! :-)

  2. Tania, you are HEALTHY!! Keep it up!! :-)

  3. Tania, I must admit I'd never heard anything about the dangers of burning incense in a closed room... something I do quite often!

  4. Linda, I'm sure all the readers of this blog are paragons of good health ;-)
