We never thought we'd contemplate purchasing a $600 candle but, hey, there is a first for everything. This new, limited-edition Nazareth candle from Cire Trudon is truly a work of art. A collaboration with French couture jeweler Gripoix (of Chanel and Balenciaga fame), this candle has just about the prettiest bejeweled snowflake on its lid (or "crown" as it states on the Aedes de Venustas website). Yes, this is quite the Christmas gift (for a dear friend or maybe, just maybe, for yourself?), but think about how this light will cast a warm, amber glow across your living space and fill it with the smells of orange, cinnamon, and clove. Come on, dream with us on this one.
