Oh wow....how happy would I be if someone gave me one or five of these glorious luxe GORGEOUS candles by NARS! I think they have a scent for everyone. But I guess these aren't for everyone. Make sure you give these to someone who actually appreciates the thought, the effort and the price...these aren't for people who just want candles from Bath and Body Works (bleh). These NARS candles also say they have a burn time of up to 70 hours! YES. They should for the amount of money they cost!
The first one is called ACAPULCO and costs $50 (I think they all cost around $50). I didn't know what to think this would smell like by the name alone (so Nars!). But wow...the description is all my favorite things and very apropos for holiday (IF you like sweet smells of chocolate and vanilla):
A delicious top note of rich, velvety chocolate is combined with a delicate blend of whipped cream accord and coffee bean for intensity and depth, while the dry down captures the senses with a distinctive base of cocoa powder and creamy vanilla.
|one of the chicest candles in all existence!|
BOSPHORUS is exclusive to the Nars website, methinks. It also says this candle smells this way:
Top notes of pure lilac blossoms and sweet essence of hyacinth are blended with middle notes of crushed green leaves, accents of currant, mandarin, and peony laced with raspberry and subtle aquatic notes.
|another chic one....!|
SHANGRI-LA seems very perfect for the winter season. It's also an exclusive candle to the website and probably the stores and also costs $50. I love things that smell like tea...at least a little like tea is good. It's also in the gorgeous rich crimson color. So so Nars.
Fresh, clean top notes of bois de rose and mountain sage paired with warm, spicier notes of clove bud, nutmeg and basil leaves produced this enticingly spicy and exotic scent. The heart combines delicate notes of jasmine petals and black tea for a softly provocative touch.
There are a couple of other candles, too, if these scents don't turn you on. Check them out here. And really consider these for that person who loves luxury or that person who never gets to have any luxury in their lives. I bet it will be one of their most favorite presents they've ever received. :) ALSO ALSO ALSO if you order from Nars online, you'll prob end up with some lovely deluxe samples or gifts or something! Score!♡
