"Molton Brown Black Pepper Aircandela, when it comes down to it Molton does woody masculine like no other... deep, sensual, perfect for a long hot bath and this Black Pepper candle is a favorite out of the collection. The swank box and ribbon means no extra wrapping needed."
"D.L. & Co. Modern Alchemy Secret Society, with a mysterious name like that how can you go wrong? Created out of natural Aromatherapy essential oils these candles have been some of the few to have a huge crossover appeal to men. Love the attention to detail and the steampunk vibe of each piece."
"Paddywax - Eco Bergamot & Tobacco Flower candle, the secret needs to get out, Paddywax creates candles that are just as luxe smelling at the popular $60 and $70 models out there (Paddywax's start at 5 bucks!) and comes in special eco editions using recycled materials and natural inks. The personal favorite is their deep blend of Bergamot & Tobacco Flowers and their Lemongrass & Green Tea."
"Le Cherche Midi 21 Scented Candle, love the detail of the reusable wooden box and chic little cover that tops each candle in this very gift worthy line which has its roots back in good old Paris. The scent "21" is fresh yet deep, cool weather friendly and masculine combining Grapefruit with Cardamom, Cinnamon Flower, Sandalwood, Leather, Skin Musk."
"CIR depuis 1643 Douceur d'Ete Bougie, it's somewhat hard to imagine this candle company has been around since 1643. Amazing! When you smell their candles you can quickly see why, they're that good, melodic and well rounded little things. Of course the real draw for me is experiencing something that a royal court experiences all those centuries ago. Almost as good as a time machine."
"Archipelago Botanicals Signature Series Bergamot Tobacco candle, like Paddywax do not let the lower price prevent you from giving these richly scented blends... this Bergamot Tobacco is a favorite and their most popular request. Love the wax seal touch on both candle and box.
Along with the Bergamot Tobacco above be sure to also try their rich Archipelago Botanicals Havana candle infused with sexy ylang ylang and Cuban tobacco leaf which also comes in travel tin form. That and their throughly modern Archipelago Botanicals A.B. Home Collection Soy Wax Candle - Lavender have been major hits with gift recipents."
"Jonathan Adler Muse Candle in Blanc, has a floral scent that seems so universally pleasing. If you're unsure of a persons taste and are dead set on giving a candle, give this one. Once burned, they're left with precious Alder sculpture."
"Crabtree & Evelyn India Hicks Island Living Candle, Casuarina 1 ea, it was really sad to hear that Crabtree & Evelyn was having problems and might go under... because they're candles are surprisingly good, long burning and throw some major scent through ones rooms. This fresh India Hicks candle is so chic and rustic yet classic. The woven container means no further gift wrap is required."
