France celebrates the scented candle or bougie parfumee. Doesn’t it create a magnificent atmosphere? The French and their candles deserves several posts, but let’s get to the bottom line: who does not love the scent of a perfumed candle, as hostess or as a gift idea? I gift them each year with a bottle of wine in a basket at Christmas for my sister’s corporate gifts.
My favorite candles come from Mis en Demeure in Paris, though I also love Diptyque. But who can get to France and pay $60 for a Diptyque candle? My favorite candle in the US, which also happens to sell at select LA farmers markets, is Robert Ford of Market Candle; order HERE.
The candles are soy, long-burning, and high fragrance content. Great alone, in the glass container, but for holiday I gift with a bow~
You saw them on my Thanksgiving table; the simple glass containers are wonderful; I have used them for years~
My favorites are Citrus Leaf and Casablanca Lilly burned at the same time, though I have to say I have tried many of them and they are all very true for fragrance; they come in a simple carton box that you can wrap, ribbon or dress up~
They are also $10. Ten dollars! For me in SoCal that means $12 delivered. You have seen these in previous magazine shoots with me covered in leaves and bows, or salt & sugar for winter; they are so simple as they are but easy to dress up.
Hope you will enjoy for yourself or for gifts~ love Robert’s candles, they rival the best French candles in my opinion; tell him I sent you please though I have no commission arrangement with him….
