    Is this the correct translation for:
    Thank you for the candle. It smells so good.

    Je te remerci pour la bougie. Elle sent si bonne.

    Is "bonne" a predicate adjective here, because of the verb "sentir" and therefore, "bonne"agrees with "elle" ?

    Merci en avance pour l'aide.

    in this case "bon" is an adverb not an adjective. Thus no agreement with the subject.

    Je te remercie pour la bougie. Elle sent si bon.
