I love candles though given that most of my furniture is modern, over-sized, and made of wood, for the most part I have them scattered around solely for decorative purposes which is why I love the Delirium & Co. Candles. They not only smell wonderful — strong without being over-powering and I particularly love the Pear and Violet scented-candle ($38) — they look chic just as a decorative element! Plus with a celeb following as diverse as Elton John and P. Diddy they have that across-the-board appeal that makes for a great last-minute stocking stuffer. All the candles in the line are soy blends and come in a handmade translucent reflective glass. There are two distinct collections — “The Silver Period” with China Tea, Delicate Bouquet, Pear & Violet, and Sensual Camelia scents and the “The Blue Period” which includes Royal Amber, Samurai Woods, Suede & Smoke, and Sweet Tobacco fragrances.
