You buy the candle. Light the candle. Smell the candle. Wash, rinse, repeat. That seems to be the whole point of it all, doesn’t it? Yet there are some beautiful candles that just seem to defy this notion. They gaze back at you lovingly in their pretty vessels and shapes. Daring you to light them if you can. It’s ok. We’re here for support. As we round up our list of beauties, we want to assure you that it’s ok to light them all.
