|Laura Mercier's Warm Roasted Chestnut Candle|
is heavenly with Vanilla, Clove, & Spiced Berries.
The new Laura Mercier Holiday candles are not going to help my situation. I just got an ad from Neiman's in my inbox advertising her new holiday gift collection. I clicked it and up popped my old friends. I first bought the Mercier candles, in all three scents, on sale from Nordstrom last Christmas. I was not disappointed and while I secreted them away, I wanted to use them before the scent faded (a risk for candle hoarders; scents don't last forever). Of course they're packaged as gifts; pretty metallic brown boxes with satin ribbons that open to reveal frosted glass cylinders the size of a Progresso can, but charity starts at home, right?
|Creme Brulee is rich with Caramel, Vanilla Bean, and Sugar.|
At $42.00 a crack, they make a classy hostess gift, a beautiful 'just because we're friends' gift, or maybe something for a frenemy you're trying to guilt or intimidate. Personally, I'm going to wait until after Christmas when they'll be on sale, then indulge. I'll be scouring the .com's to find them, and when I do, I'll pray for a happy new year, and free shipping.
