Get Lit

Your place says a lot about you. And over-adorned, over-scented candles do not tell the tale of a simple, stylish man. But that's not to say you can't reap the benefits of lighting up. The right candle will help cover up the stale air caused by central heating and provide some generous lighting for parties or more intimate affairs. The grooming line, Baxter of California, recently released a line of stylish, sweet-smelling soy-based candles while French fragrance house Diptyque offers a woodsy Scotch pine scent for the holiday season. For something a bit more earthy, try Jonathan Adler's hashish candle.
