Add ambiance and elevate your décor by displaying candles in monochromatic groupings in varying heights and diameters of three or more to create a candlescape.  I adore styling with over-sized unscented cathedral candles (the taller the better), unscented candles housed within glass hurricanes, and unscented clear glass votives sprinkled throughout a room will turn a dinner party into an event within minutes.


 

It’s patio season so why not, take your next outdoor garden party up a notch with thirty or more candles for a dramatic effect.  Light a pathway with hurricanes or greet your guest with a birdbath filled with votive candles. Dine alfresco with friends or get romantic with the one you love under the moon with a candle lit seaside picnic—the possibilities are endless.

While unscented candles are my go-to for creating candlescapes at home—I prefer to choose a home fragrance that is all-enveloping—I want the scent to impart a pleasant smell, evoke a feeling, and complement the room and the time of the day in which the candle will be aglow.  I like scents that remind me of places I’ve been, trips I’ve taken— places and gardens I’ve explored.  When selecting fragrances for clients I will often ask about their memories of favorite destinations and scents they find appealing to explore and suggest for their signature home fragrance scent(s).  I will often suggest one for day and one for night—and room by room we just might choose a different scent to capture a particular mood. I always curate a selection specifically to their needs and function with a distinct point of view.

I’m currently loving home fragrance ceramic vessels from Fornasetti and Gucci, and single-wick filled candles from Jo Malone (Pomegranate Noir is warm and inviting), Diptyque (Tubéreuse is always lovely), Tom Ford and Christian Dior.  Personally, I have my eye and nose fixed upon Jardin d’orangers by Christian Dior and a Gucci Black Herbarium candle for my next purchase.

Enjoy the living lights and finding your favorite home fragrance. Need help? Just ask.
