The Mood Setter
February 10, 2015
By Buffy York
I have a friend that we call “The Mood Setter.” She earned this title years ago. Our group of friends would often get together for anything from a porch party to a dinner party and she knew how to set the mood. She would have the lights set just right, the perfect music playing in the backgroud and it was highly likely she would dream up a signature cocktail.
In honor of Valentine’s Day I am hooking you up with an array of my favorite candles and a few songs you might want to download to help you set your own mood. Several of these candles are perfect for Valentine’s, like the Penthouse/Champagne Glass Candle from Lafco or the Roses Candle from diptyque. I have personally owned most of these and they all smell amazing, are beautifully packaged and last a long, long time. The Luxe Linen from Aquiesse is my current flavor of the month, but this Jo Malone Blackbery and Bay and the Delight from Stella and Dot are also on the top of my list for candles. These candles don’t exactly fit into the “bargain” category but I have a super sensitive sniffer and I firmly believe that when it comes to home fragrances there is no need to skimp.
