Polly's Pick: Astier de Villatte Provincetown Candle
What is it about a burning candle? Anything it diffuses smells warm and tranquil. I look forward to late-afternoon lulls when I take a breather to light up a bougie.
This one caught my eye, because it was created in collaboration with John Derian, the master of decoupage. I've been a fan of Astier de Villatte candles for quite some time. (If you're not familiar with them, I encourage you to make a beeline to the home section of Barney's or Bergdorf Goodman.) The spicy Alcatraz candle enchants in a way that makes your shoulders relax instantly. Consider the unusual notes of Italian blond tobacco (not even close to prison yard Marlboros), yerba mate, dried hay and black pepper. You will want to be held captive by this Alcatraz. Please, take me as prisoner. I beg you.
John Derian's Provincetown candle captures the salty sea spray and dusty dunes I look forward to every summer.
