Sometimes it is not enough to get yourself looking gorgeous, your surroundings have to set the mood. As a self-professed candle junkie I can tell you that not any old candle fits the bill. Sure, they have to be clean burning and non-toxic, but let’s be real – the scent is what it’s all about. It is such a let down to get a candle that smells great in the jar, then produces nothing but the smell of…well, burning candle… once lit.
The perfect little candle recently made its way across my desk (and on to my vanity) and is the lovely and luxurious scent of fresh island plumeria. And who is the creator of such a deliciously scented room enhancer? None other than (straight from the tropics) Malie Organics. Made from clean-burning soy and kukui oils, it is petroleum-free and burns by way of cotton wick for a nice long 60 hours. Comes in a simple glass container with nothing but the tasteful, gold Malie symbol on the front. Chic and elegant.
Now back to the scent. It is sweet, soft and exotic, yet mild enough for those of us who are scent-sensitive. And the beautiful aroma lasts long after you’ve snuffed it out. Also come in Coconut Vanilla, Organic Mango Nectar, Koke’e (crisp, green) and Pikake (Hawaiian Jasmine).
