i contain multitudes - i am both candle hoarder and candle snob. one of my favorite ways to unwind after a long day is with a glass of wine and a candle, but i hate scents that are too fruity, incense-y, or almost anything vanilla. a candle must achieve an elegant balance to win my affections.
cowshed lazy cow soothing travel candles may have a silly name, but the scent is strictly refined; a mix of jasmine, camomile, and sandalwood. made from natural wax with egyptian cotton wick. they come in delicately etched glasses that i plan to wash and reuse as q-tip holders. YES. i know, perfection.
the brand makes many other unexpected scent combinations, including horny cow which mixes rose absolute, patchouli and cinnamon (i'm looking to get my hands on this one next. seduction, here i come!). $34.50 for the set for 4 travel candles at cowshed.com.
