Thanks everyone for your reader comments on my last post.

I'm thinking maybe I should clarify that my house doesn't stink...at least I don't think it does. I am not trying to cover-up any smell just give my house a light, pleasant smell when someone walks in. It just doesn't have a special, good smell unless I'm baking (which I do a lot but the smell disappears so quickly).

I DO use a diaper genie (which smells even when there's just a few diapers in it) and Phil and I keep the litterbox very clean because our cat poops on the carpet if it's not cleaned daily. Oh, and I bought a new litter last time just to try something different and Phil actually told me "Wow, that litter smells great!" It was the Arm & Hammer Odor Alert I believe and although I laughed when he told me that, it does smell good without a "masking the odor" type smell.

Anyways, thanks for all the suggestions. I'll have to look into wallflowers. They sound interesting and I don't know what they are. Thanks also for the specific smell suggestions that you enjoy.

I'm sure glad you don't have a stinky house. If you did I couldn't come to visit and I really want to do that. Hey, remember when mom used to have that popperie pot with cinnamon sticks and cloves and stuff. That did smell nice. May be you could try that.
