Light This: Delirium & Co. Candles

Though it's far from the truth, I like to think that luxury and style are my middle names. Okay, okay, definitely a stretch but Delirium & Co.'s chic candles DO bring a hint of sophistication to my nightstand. And hey, one step at a time, right?

These sleek candles ($38 each), packaged in dark blue or silver, are inspired by the most romantic, idealistic periods in history. More importantly, they pair unexpected fragrances to create the most heady blends. Take the Suede & Smoke candle (left) - it's a smoldering melange of tobacco leaves, moss, papaya, lapsangsouchong dark tea and green manda. Heaven!

If you're interested in something lighter for summer, try the feminine Pear & Violet. Created with Silver Screen Legends Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly in mind, it evokes a sultrier time when raw beauty co-existed with strength, vulnerability and femininity.
