Chinoiserie Chic Candles for Mom

Japanese Quince Pagoda Candle

I have been a huge fan of Seda France's Japanese Quince candle for years. This iconic scent makes a fabulous gift for the lover of chinoiserie with its gorgeous pagoda packaging. It is the quintessential hostess gift or Mother's Day gift.

This candle reminds everyone of Diptyque Baies at a much better price point. (This size Baies sells for $110). The fragrance is hard to describe - clean, unisex, elegant, complex, with a long burn time and great throw. It is a candle you need to try if you haven't yet. Reading reviews trying to analyze this scent is hysterical - people describe it as fruity, woodsy, floral, peach, jasmine, black currants, rhubarb, quince, passion fruit, berries - I don't even try - it's just divine. It has been featured on Oprah and is the signature scent at some of the world's most expensive hotels. The bottom line is that it smells, burns, and has the throw of a VERY expensive candle.

This size pictured above is the most popular size with a single wick and 60 hour plus burn time. Find it here.
