Much like choosing a perfume, picking a scented candle can be a pretty personal decision. So what if you could make your own candle? Bath and Body Works teamed up with one my favorite candle makers, Slatkin & Co., to help you do just that.
Candle scents should transport you somewhere else and completely change the mood of your room. I love using candles in my tiny—emphasis on tiny—apartment to freshen it up or to help mask cooking odors. The ceramic Slatkin & Co. candles are some of my favorites, because they don't even look like candles when they aren't lit. Plus they have several shapes, for example a pineapple (which are considered to be good luck in some cultures) and my personal favorite, their turtle shaped ones. How cute would these be for a summer party?
