We’re all for pumpkin spice lattes, but when it comes to our candles, we prefer a scent that’s a bit less specialty coffee and a bit more sophisticated—which is where Illume comes in. The Minneapolis-based brand, which approaches candles like perfumes and colognes, has created these long-lasting candles, each neatly packaged in a sparkly, textured glass vase. And not only smell amazing, but they also make the perfect gift for the consummate host or hostess.
How to Use
Each candle comes in a textured glass vase and burns for up to 125 hours.For a wintery scent that blends berries, fir, pine, and balsam, opt for Balsam & Cedar. Gilded Amberleaf pairs base notes of vanilla, cedar, and patchouli with heart notes of tobacco and tonka and citrusy top notes of lemon, mandarin, and orange. Noble Currant is a blend of deep fruits, wine, rare woods, and warm spices.
