When it comes to the candle industry, there's no one better to ask than Trish Baden of Flores Lane. Hand-poured in the heart of West Hollywood, Flores Lane's candles reflect that crafty tradition but with a chic and refined twist.
"I have always had an obsession for scents. I love mixing lotions with perfumes and oils to create customized fragrances. My house is filled with a collection of candles, diffusers, incense and oils, and I always pack a travel candle to make hotel rooms feel more like home. While on my perpetual search for new fragrances, I have fallen completely in love with local scent experts, Flores Lane. Flores Lane candles are hand-poured with American soy wax with scents and are inspired by cities in LA county. From Venice to Beverly Hills, every candle has it’s own unique and distinct scent that represents the attitude and energy of these communities. Jasmin & bergamot emulates the artistic spirit of Silverlake, while notes of tobacco & bay leaf give DTLA an urban and masculine feel."
DO opt for a crowd-pleasing scented candle. It's all the fragrance without the risk of someone hating it.
Flores Lane Williamsburg Candle, $22, available at Flores Lane.
"These candles are the perfect stocking stuffer, gift for a girlfriend, co-worker or boss at a very affordable price for the holidays. Each candle is based off of a city in New York and Los Angeles and sold online to make shopping easy!"
