As if this delicious candle wasn’t enough, I discovered it came in a room spray too. And by room spray, I mean, everything, myself included spray.
My favorite candle and room spray in the world is Abd el Kader, by Cire Trudon. A heady combination of fresh mint, green tea and tobacco, I’ve never smelled anything else like it. And it shouldn’t be much of a surprise either, since Cire Trudon has been around since 1643 and the official royal candlemaker since 1719. The store is beautiful and cozy, and filled with candles and room sprays you can’t find back in the states. They’re definitely expensive, but if you’re looking for the perfect “I don’t know what to get you” gift, a Cire Trudon anything is a good bet.
