I’ve become something of a candle obsessive over the course of this ongoing pandemic — amassing a sizable collection that now takes up three shelves and a drawer. That’s to say I know a good candle when I smell one, and Skylar’s candles have been a recent standout in my rotation. I’m actually burning Capri Summer in the bathroom right now, which simultaneously smells like the wrist of your fanciest friend (perhaps that’s the neroli and bergamot) and the last days of summer (that would be the blood orange). It also burns strong and fills my entire bathroom, quickly transforming it into a summery oasis despite it being a mere 30 degrees. It also takes a good bit of time to burn through and the votive is sleek and beautiful. It’s the kind of candle that I’ll miss long after the last burn and will likely repurchase so I can always have one on standby. Luckily for me (and you), it’s currently on sale, bringing it down from $45 to $34. That’s a good enough deal to splurge on another — like Fall Cashmere, a not-so-basic autumnal scent, and Salt Air, which will give any room a spa-like feel.
