Tocca-Cleopatra-Candelina.jpgI honestly can’t believe I’ve never written about the fabulousness of the Tocca Cleopatra Candelina. This is one of my all-time favorite beauty items and has been for years—it’s just a shame I’m only sharing it with you now.

Truth be told, I love every single Tocca scent. But none of them can hold a candle (pardon the pun) to Cleopatra. In any case, this candle smells absolutely divine. A blend of cucumber and grapefruit notes makes it sound horrible, but trust me—it’s anything but. This candle is light, crisp, fresh and just a touch zesty, and I can’t help but smile every time I light it.

Plus, it’s presented in elegant cut glass and burns for around 30 hours. THIRTY! And it’s a travel candle! I just think that’s miraculous.

Kukui-Passion-Fruit-Citrus-Candle.jpgAfter the beating the East Coast has taken over the past few days from Hurricane Sandy, we’ll take any sort of sunny inspiration we can get. Enter the Kukui Passion Fruit Citrus Travel Tin Candle.

The scent is light, crisp and fresh. It brings an ease and simplicity to the room when you burn it — you know it’s there, but it’s not overpowering.

This candle burns evenly and cleanly for up to hours, thanks to the fact that it’s crafted from coconut wax with an all-cotton wick. Plus, the tin is perfect for travel since it’s so adorably teensy! (Which we’ll definitely be taking advantage of once we’re actually able to leave New York again.)

Voluspa-Santiago-Huckleberry-Candle.jpgI have a major candle addiction. Really. At any given point in time, you may find at least 30 strewn around my apartment. But, recently, only one has been lit—and that’s the Voluspa Santiago Huckleberry Candle.

Not only is the oversized cut glass jar absolutely gorgeous, but the scent inside is simply intoxicating. A blend of vanilla and crushed sugar cane accompany the aforementioned huckleberry, creating an aroma that wafts out of the jar and immediately draws you in. Even my mother, who’s not really a candle fan, said after smelling this candle during a recent trip to New York, “I think you’ve converted me!”

The candle is made from 100 percent coconut wax with a cotton wick. And, you’ll be happy to know that it has a burn time of 100 hours. Yes, you read that right—ONE HUNDRED HOURS. I’ve already burned it for at least 10 and the wax has barely gone down! And thank goodness, because I want this baby to last me well into the winter months.

Love-Life-Skin-Aromatherapy-Candle.jpgWe’re always looking for ways to relax and destress. And, now that we’ve found the Love Life Skin Aromatherapy Candle, it’s certainly gotten easier.

This candle is formulated with a mix of sweet lavender oil, spicy ginger and rose oil, each of which contains different properties to soothe the soul. The lavender calms the senses, the ginger provides anti-nausea benefits and the rose oil uplifts the spirits. What could be better, right?

Add to that the fact that this candle is made from natural soy based wax that burns down evenly and slowly, and we’d say this candle is pretty darn near perfect. Especially since we feel our soul getting calmer each and every time we light it.

Aquiesse-Boardwalk-Candle.jpgThe best way to invite summer into your home, no matter what the season—or the temperature? With the Aquiesse Portofino Collection Boardwalk Candle.

The notes in this candle are deliriously delicious. Waffle cone and driftwood meld seamlessly with surf and sand to create a scent so divine, we haven’t been able to stop burning it since we got it! It instantly transports us to the cool ease of summertime and fun in the sun.

Plus, we’re loving that this candle is made with a soy wax blend, organic soybean oil and a lead-free wick. It burns evenly and lasts forever, even in the small tin size!

The Aquiesse Portofino Collection Boardwalk Candle retails for $5-$36 depending on size at
