Another wonderful holiday tradition is lighting my Slatkin Holiday candle. I must admit, I started quite early this year...mid October! I discovered this amazing candle a few years ago in August (there is a store in Atlanta that stocks it year round), so holding out until October is not so bad. There is something about the scent of this candle that really appeals to me. The website says that it is infused with the scent of mandarin orange, cinnamon, cloves, pine and eucalyptus. It definitely has more of a fall/winter scent to it, as it is rich and warm.
The Slatkin Holiday candle can be purchased in Neiman Marcus, or online through a variety of outlets. I love the little velvet box that holds the candle.
Speaking of Slatkin candles, the beach cottage of the founder of the company, Harry Slatkin, was just in the October issue of House and Garden. You have probably seen Harry Slatkin all over the place recently, as he is featured in Zippo lighter ads.
Harry Slatkin in his East Hampton beach cottage (October H&G). I love the Picasso drawing above the sofa. (Sorry for the terrible scan. It looks like there is a basketweave superimposed on the image. I rarely scan because I hate my scanner. It is time for a new one).
