Henri Bendel : Good Candles

Pin it button big

Good candles are not too hard to come by, we know. Nicely scented ones are pretty easy to find. We're not sure exactly what it is about these that make them so delicious, although it's entirely likely that it is the graphic design of the labels...that font! We just had to blog them.

Created by Harry Slatkin (a home fragrance designer and "candle king" - who knew that was an available job title?), they are formulated with a vegetable wax base and a lead-free wick and come in around 20 scents such as eucalyptus, grapefruit, quince and tuberose.

We saw some super-giant sized ones in hatbox style packages the last time we were in C.O. Bigelow that would make a great gift.

Henri Bendel candles, $28, available at C.O. Bigelow.
