Holiday gifting hack: buy two more candles than you think you need, and in the wise words of Jonathan Adler... “’Tis the season for peace, love, and presents with presence.” No matter how long your list, and no matter how fussy your relatives, we have rounded up some mood-lighting essentials for him, for her, for the host, and for all your fabulous friends in between.
All Jonathan Adler candles are a soy/paraffin blend for a cleaner burn and stronger scent reach. Enjoy their essence for an average 40 hour burn time—trimming the wick regularly to a quarter inch will help your candle burn at a slower rate.
Scent-sory escapes and festive flickers await!
Holiday POP Candle
Whenever the merry mood strikes, spark up this spirited scent in a reusable golden vessel (think: petite, post-season vase). Packaged in a nifty gift box, they make a perfect holiday hostess present (or pick-me-up for yourself).
Smells like: the essence of crisp winter air (pine and evergreen trees, winter berries, cinnamon, clove, a hint of arctic snow).
Feels like: the first snow of the season, shiny bows on wrapped presents, a steaming mug of hot cider, fair isle everything.
Pick Your Poison Votive Set
Cant choose? Get all three! A set of the lushest scents—champagne, bourbon, and vodka—each poured into a glamorous glass vessel finished with a metallic shine. Perfect bud vases or glasses long after the candle has burnt out, and packaged in a nifty gift box, the cocktail-influenced votives make the perfect hostess present (or a pick-me-up for yourself).
Champagne smells like: pink grapefruit, raspberry, French cassis, violet leaves, rose petal, grape leaf.
Feels like: New Year's Eve, silk-satin sheets, a million bucks
Bourbon smells like: Davana, cognac, plum, leather accord, birch tree, cedarwood
Feels like: William Faulkner, a Secret Society at Yale, buckskin breeches, a date with your ex.
Vodka smells like: Zest lime slices, pink grapefruit, tonic spritzer, crushed cilantro, gin accord, bamboo water, fresh musk, sheer woods.
Feels like: an igloo hotel, Elaine Stritch, a chic after party, a Brezhnev-era high-rise.
Expand your horizons with the Jonathan Adler Druggist LSD Candle, featuring dreamy third-eye mindscapes rendered in Delft-inspired blues and accented with real sparkly gold. Poured into a posh porcelain canister with a removable lid—perfect for stashing your secrets long after the candle has burnt out.
Smells like: wild jasmine, cardamom, fresh basil, wild orchid, cedar wood, verbena, white amber.
Feels like: 60s San Francisco, Revolver on vinyl, another dimension.
Muse Candle Collection
Let the Muse candle collection take you on an Olfactory Reverie. Choose from the Noir, Blanc, D’Or and Gilded Muse, each housed in the signature head-turning Dora Maar translucent vessels, that glow when the wicks are lit!
Enjoy the essence of The Muse Candles for an average 48 hour burn time—trimming the wick regularly to a quarter inch will help your candle burn at a slower rate. Once your candle is gone, the vessel is begging to be reused as a vase (we recommend pretty posies).
Blanc: A crisp scent of fresh cut flower.
Noir: Midnight black wax with deep notes of bergamot and black plum mingled with amber and vetiver.
D’Or: With its chic gold glaze, sometimes you should gild the lily. A warm scent of pink pepper and sage balsam.
Gilded: A citrusy floral candle, provocatively punctuated with saucy iconography in pure, gleaming gold, scented with pink grapefruit, raspberry, French cassis, violet leaves, rose petal, grape leaf.
Bougie Parfumée, that’s earthy but also couture. This scandalous scent is a tempting taboo to inhale, a fusion of black currant, green apple, wormwood, patchouli, and moss. Once your candle burns out, its porcelain vessel makes a perfect stash box.
