What to Candle: Vie Luxe Tuileries

I'd been coveting this candle at Gump's for a long time. I decided on Saturday to make it my birthday present to myself.

The tuileries scent is supposedly inspired by the flowers at the Jardin de Tuileries in Paris. To me, it smells like being on vacation in the tropics or Santa Barbara. Lots of tuberose, jasmine and geranium without being overpowering. Plus, the attractive nickel glass is all set to join your coffee table or bedside.

You can buy it online from Saks here. (Note: the lotion and travel sized versions had a slightly different and less appealing scent than the large candle)

And Happy belated Birthday!
