Oklahoma is so freakin’ hot every summer that once I turn on the AC in May it rarely gets turned off before late September. It’s that bad. But the thing is, when a house is closed up and relying on circulated air like that it starts to get a funk about it. You know what I’m talking about, right? Something needs to be done and that something is candles. I’m really picky when it comes to what smells I can tolerate (Thanks, Mom!), and think spending a little extra definitely pays off. What are your go-tos?

    I bought a Fig candle for Henri Bendel on a trip to New York City in autumn of 2004 and I have been trying in vain to find a fig candle that’s as good as that one here at home in Australia. If I haven’t found one by 2014 I’m just going to have to go back to New York and get one. Maybe two. I hope they still make them.

    (I just found them online… unfortunately they don’t ship to Australia. So, I’ll just have to go to New York. What a shame.)
