The Candle That Changed Everything


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA candleIs the title of this post dramatic enough for you? I don’t have the vocabulary to describe how utterly orgasmic this candle is….but I will certainly try! While browsing my friend Chelsea’s online store Anomie I came across Pommes Frites Candle Co., who make beautifully packaged little numbers that will have you trying to sniff your computer screen.

Pommes Frites Candle Co. Teakwood & Tobacco Soy Candle-$16.00 This is by far the sexiest smelling candle…in the world. I bought two from Chelsea’s shop as a Valentine’s Day gift for Aslan and he loved them so much. Naturally, I have stolen both candles and have been burning them on MY desk, but it he can still smell it so it kinda counts right? The website says it’s their bestselling candle and I can definitely see why. I don’t think I can ever be without this candle for as long as I live!

P.F. say: “This candle starts out masculine and dare-we-say a little bit sexy. Leather, spicy black pepper, and tobacco mingle as the first notes. The sweetness of pipe tobacco is revealed on the burn. Orange and berry mellow out the masculine notes.Base notes of aged teak and sandalwood, with a hint of muskiness from patchouli essential oil.”

After doing a bit of research I learned that P.F. is a candle company based in LA, run by a husband and wife. The candles are made using soy wax (I love soy candles because they burn so smoothly), cotton wicks and of course the apothecary style packaging. Each candle is hand poured.

I’ve already made another order from Anomie for the Amber & Moss candle as well as the Sweet Grapefruit scent because I’m so impressed with the quality. Definitely check out Anomie to see all of the other scents they have. They all sound so dreamy. Do you like the sounds of Teakwood & Tobacco?
