I have long hankered after the quirky ceramics by Astier de Villatte, but always reasoned that I would probably break them, so resisted. But now they have these beautiful candles, and even a hand cream, soap and eau de cologne, any of which could be a safer way to own a bit of the brand. The descriptions of the candles on the website are so evocative - I think perfect for these misty Autumnal nights must be the 'Edimbourg' candle: "A haunted castle, an ancient city of ruins abandoned to ghosts. The aromatic vapours of a pure single malt, damp cedar wood, mossy stones and beeswax mingle with coolly mysterious mineral notes." Gorgeous.
