candle thread

Recommended Posts

Offhand, i know Visvim, Nom de Guerre, Comme des Garcons, Opening Ceremony, Sophnet, APC and a number of perfumers all make candles.

Gotta be something to it, anyone ever try these designer candles?

Discuss...

Has anyone tried the Malin+Goetz candles?

Yep, the cannabis ones smell pretty good.

Seconded. Have you noticed that the air gets thick when you use it though? I don't know how to describe it, but it doesn't burn like other candles do...

diptyque and comme both burn pretty quick

cire trudon burns slow but isn't very fragrant, at least the balmoral I tried

I've found the vetiver one to be very smokey, but can't say I've noticed the same with the cannabis one.

Yeah, this one is perfect. I wish they made a small size of the tobacco one.

Can anyone suggest any good candles that arent like 60$?

 

My little pinion pine teepee is doing a great job but wife wants something else.

Burned through the bear candle from Patch NYC, pretty good burn time and not too overpowering.  Not bad for the price either.

Need to try Diptyque or Le Labo next I think.

I'm a big fan of Carriere Freres, in particular their melon and Chinese lychee scents. They're made by Cire Trudon, but without the Cire Trudon price tag.
