My cousin-in-law Caroline recently gave me a Thymes Eucalyptus candle that smells so heavenly (and, compared to the Jo Malones of the world, is priced so reasonably) that I absolutely had to share it with you so you could buy it immediately and fill your home with the refreshingly green scent. With a base of eucalyptus and hints of lemon and lime, it creates a perfectly cleansing and uplifting aura in your home that will put you at ease after a long day. The scent is seasonless, but something about it reminds me of the holidays, and it is a nice way to ease into the holiday spirit without going overboard.
My cousin bought the candle at an adorable store in Rye, NY, called Blush Beauty Bar (which, if you live in the area, you should visit), but it is also available at brick-and-mortar stores in larger metropolitan areas (e.g. Gracious Home in New York) and a number of online vendors with various shipping options (details below):

I am an artist/designer and former financial professional with a background in comparative literature, business and design. I live in New York with my overworked lawyer husband and my two boys Michael and Theo and spend much of my free time dreaming about how to enhance the aesthetics of our little world. I am endlessly inspired and always in search of something new. This is a blog about my search, my inspiration and things I just really, really like or want.
