We've always admired Jonathan Adler
's Muse collection
. With a weakness for unglazed porcelain, the collection is made up of classics we can't ignore (and can't afford). We were pleased that he recently introduced the Muse Candle
with a much lower price point. The 13 oz. candle has a crisp, pleasant aroma. While Mr. Adler describes it as "fresh cut flowers," "fresh" is a better descriptor than "floral"...
The porcelain vessel makes a great larger bud vase when the candle has burned away. The vase stands 3.5" tall, and is just as wide. The large size of this candle (two wicks) makes the $65 price tag easier to swallow. An attractive box makes this an easy gift.
