I know people think that candles are an impersonal gift, but I personally love them and can never have too many. To me, they are the PERFECT gift. A little token of love that keeps on giving! Every time I light a candle, I remember where / who / what and think back to a memory with the given smell. I also have a cabinet of candles, as you never know when you need a last minute gift. So, here is my list of favorite candles!
1. D.S. & Durga Big Sur After Rain
One of my favorite scents — have it as soap, hand sanitizer, and as candles. It is light and refreshing and I never get sick of it.
2. Lake and Skye 11:11
I shower in my 11:11 perfume, and never leave the house without putting it all over my body. I love this candle, although it is much more subtle. But clean and light.
3. Diptyque Baies
Totally mainstream, but a classic.
4. Baobab Grand Palais
Unique glass, smell, and look. Love everything about it.
5. P.F. Candle Co. Sandalwood Rose
A more organic look and smell, but nonetheless, smooth, musky, and vibrant.
6. Cire Trudon Ernesto
Beautiful and can’t go wrong.
7. Le Labo Santal 26
Reminds me of the subways from Brooklyn — all the hipsters wearing this scent — but love it no matter what. An oldie and a goodie.
8. Frederic Malle Jurassic Flower
Sophisticated and floral, beautiful and easy.
I have so many more to add to the list, these are just some of the many! And if you have a candle that you swear by and love, please send me an email / text / call — as I love hearing what are your favorites!
