Breakfast In Tuscany

Let’s just start with the most decadent, why don’t we? Jo Malone’s Wild Fig and Cassis Luxury Candle is like having breakfast in Tuscany.

An all time favorite and one of their bestsellers, check out the Diptyque Baies 6.5-ounce Scented Candle. Closely related to the eau de toilette L’Ombre dans l’Eau, it expresses the irresistible freshness of a bouquet of roses, sweetened with blackcurrant leaves.

There are so many candles to choose from, and in such a wide price range. That is why it’s such a good idea to stock up on candles before you get hit with the holiday madness. They make a great last-minute holiday gift, and if you have some leftover once the holidays are done…you can enjoy them too!
