My Latest Candle Favorites

Ah, candles. I seriously don't think I could ever have enough. It seems I fall in love with a new one every single day -- though, admittedly, I do have my favorites. (Tocca Cleopatra and Diptyque Violette, anyone?) I have, however, discovered five new favorites to add to the list. Get all the details after the jump.

Lafco New York, Lafco New York candle, Lafco New York Little Luxuries, Lafco New York Iris Lavender, Lafco New York Iris Lavender Little Luxuries Candle, candle, home fragranceLafco New York Iris Lavender Little Luxuries Candle: The combination of iris and lavender notes bring such a sophisticated air to this candle -- aromatic enough to scent the room, but not pungent enough to leave behind a cloying feel. The 30-hour burn time means I can enjoy it for a good long while. $20 at

Tocca, Tocca candle, Tocca Kona Candle, bluemercury, Tocca bluemercury, candle, home fragrance, bluemercury exclusiveTocca Kona Candle: This bluemercury exclusive was inspired by bluemercury founder Marla's childhood trips to Hawaii -- totally obvious when you inhale notes of coconut and hibiscus.
