Fired Up

Your place says a lot about you. And over-adorned, heavy-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 soft lighting for parties or more intimate affairs. Like a pair of beat-up suede brogues, these candles manage to be both charmingly rustic and fashionably hip.
