2. Santal 26 (Le Labo)

1. Royal Musk (Parfums de Marly)
For the pickiest of fragrance aficionados, this candle is the Rolls Royce of candles. A wide, thin wood wick hisses and crackles like a wood fire in its giant glass jar. Its intoxicating, luxe scent plays deep musk off fine florals — rose, jasmine, and iris. It’s the kind of fragrance experience that calls for a glass of brandy (and a hefty pocketbook). Trust us. When your home smells like the Palace of Versailles, you’ll realize it’s worth the investment.
