Jonathan Adler Muse d'Or Candle

The other day I stopped in the Jonathan Adler store on the Upper East Side (love it there), and treated myself to this Muse d’Or candle that I’ve been obsessed with as of late. I’ve had the Muse Noir forever and it’s always been one of my very favorite items, so when they put out the gold version, I knew it was only a matter of time before I would have to spring for it!

It’s even more gorgeous in person that it looks in photos. This is definitely more than a candle (although it does smell lovely) – it’s more like a piece of art, in my opinion. And could it be any more perfect for this time of year? The gold makes it feel festive and cozy for the winter, but I love that it’s not specifically “holiday-ish,” – keeping it perfect for all year round. I think this would make an absolutely amazing holiday gift for anyone who loves gold accents, art, quirky or offbeat items, Jonathan Adler, or even Kelly Wearstler, as this feels very much like her style as well.

    So beautiful! It brings me back to antiquity, I found my eyes like those we see in ancient Egyptian art.
    The fact that the object have a face at all angles makes it more interesting!
