We have three lamps that we use quite often during the cooler months. We burn either paraffin our ultra pure unscented lamp oil. The paraffin has no oder at all but does burn much hotter. The oil even though unscented has a bit of that mineral spirits smell when burning. If you are having sooting (smoking) problems you may have the wick to high.
