My life can get crazy-busy, and at the end of the day, I feel like I’m left with barely enough time to brush my teeth and crash into bed. But from now on, I’m going to be penciling in some serious downtime with Lumiere Candle Co.’s delicious-smelling collection. Debra Messing and Molly Sims are fans of the line, which uses a special soft wax and concentrated fragrances for the freshest scents, and I can see why! I immediately fell for the candle’s apothecary-chic jar, so I took the Citrus Rind scent home for a test drive. It burned strong for hours, infusing my whole apartment with the aroma of ripe grapefruit and tangerine, with just a touch of ginger. This hand-crafted candle gives off the perfect amount of fragrance — refreshingly distinct but not overpoweringly nauseating. And when it’s not lit, the screw-top lid keeps the candle tidy and polished enough to decorate your dresser. Their other scents, such as Berry Smash and Cucumber Rind, are just as heavenly.
