I just bought my other half the Elisabethan Rose candle from Penhaligons as part of her valentines present. A truly beautiful scent. They seem to have quite a lot of their fragrances available in candle form in store.

I like the smell of aromatic candles such as lavander and chamomile.  I light them wen I want to relax or when I read books.

Been using this candle for the past six months: Cire Trudon Dada

Over the holidays and in January we burned this: Cire Trudon Solis Rex
along with the Annick Goutal Noel candle.

So Fredrick Malle just came out with an air freshener spray... $140 / bottle.... CRAZY. But it works really well.

I was in a store on Maiden Lane in San Francisco on Saturday with my wife. Everything in the store has a dark, distressed look about it (men's and women's apparel and shoes). They had candles in large jars with chains around them. Think Mad Max does candles (distressed looking dingy grays, black and rust colors). $240 each. They smelled earthy.

I don't care if it smelled like the finest vaginas throughout the world, no candle is worth that much money.

Le Labo Santal 26 is very nice.

I like the scent of vervain ... assuming it's on the light side.

Aroma de Franklin, perhaps? I typically limit candle purchases to far less cash outlay.

Was it the All Saints store?

The only candle I have is a mini candle of Tiziana Terenzi (Ebano e Teck) that I've won. It burns a little weird (wood instead of a wick). But it smells gorgeous, lots of resin/amber/vanilla, citrus, spices and wood. I think something like 30-40% parfum. They also sell stones that are soaked in 50ml pure parfum and supposedly scent a 40m² room for one year.
I just bought two of Annick Goutal's Noel for 20€ each in the bay. I'll also look out for Diptyque and Cire Trudon.
