L’Artisan Parfumeur Ile Bourbon Candle

When I look at the name of Île Bourbon, I expect – and so would many, I guess – a vanilla candle. Do we have many vanilla candles already? If you are anything like me, the answer is yes.

But Île Bourbon is more than a vanilla scent. Evoking a tropical paradise, after one of which it is named after all, Île Bourbon smells gloriously fresh, floral, spicy and softly sweet with a little darkness added. It is exotic and warm, it smells exactly like the soft, golden light of a candleflame looks.

Sit down with a good book, light that candle and start dreaming. It works like a charm.

Île Bourbon includes notes of vanilla, orange, citrus and nutmeg and is available at L’Artisan Parfumeur.

This sounds like more than just another vanilla candle, it sounds dreamy!

Scented candles are a lovely little indulgence.

We have a house rule at home : candles are lit between October 1 and April 15 (yes, I know, we're strange...).
So tomorrow I leave for holiday and when I come back I can lit the first one in this A/W season - I hate winter, but undoubtedly there are some things I can be looking forward to...

candles are such an instant cosiness amplifier, aren't they? (I think I just made that word up, but it fits!) :)

This candle was one of the ones that went on sale a couple of months ago on the L'Artisan web site, and it killed me to have to pass it up because where I live it's just way too hot for candles to be in a UPS van (or worse--a mailbox!). I learned that lesson the hard way last summer when I opened the box of a new candle only to find it's contents melted all over the inside of the box. Sure smelled good though.

oh, that is too bad. It sounds like a diffuser would be more appropriate for your climate.
L'Artisan also has those wonderful Amber Balls, very expensive, but they smell great, and no heat can do them harm. :)

Wow! If I could do candles (cats in the house preclude it) I would burn this! I guess I could get one and not burn it, just sniff it all the time!
