All I want for Christmas is… a candle… and a mug

Let’s say that snow fairies waved their magic wands and you have extra 75 € to spend on Christmas presents. I bet there are tens of better things you could buy for that money but if you felt extra generous and wanted to treat yourself to something nice and fragrant you might want to have a look at candle in a mug range from Memo Paris. What is this? Well… it’s a candle… in a mug. Duh!

Burn a candle to spread a charming scent at home and once it’s gone you still get to enjoy a fine chinese porcelain mug. According to their website, each candle explores a single note taken out of their fragrances. You get to choose from cedar, caramel, incense, tuberose, grapefruit, amber, mint, coriander and jasmine. Each candle variant is matched with different motive on the mug.

All I want for Christmas is… Perfume

I don’t feel like doing a Christmas gift guide this year, there are many other blogs and websites where you can find those and they’ll be done way better than my guide. But if I happen to come across something fragrant that’s worth your attention, something that becomes a lemming as soon as you look at it,  you’ll be the first ones to hear from me. And I just did find something pretty!

Among hundrets of niche perfume brands JUL ET MAD is one of my favorites & has a high place on my list; I’m always excited to read about their new developments. They’re also a perfect example of thinking about perfume lovers and clients in general. The brand is more high-end and luxurious, their awesome fragrances are crafted with high quality essences, but you have options to choose from.jul-et-mad-coffret

If you don’t need a full coffret with a sparkly flacon you can pick a minimalistic version – a perfume in a sanded glass bottle in a plain box (called Love Basics). But that’s not all, if 50 ml is too much you can opt for a sleek black travel spray – Le Compagnon which holds 20 ml of the perfume. JUL ET MAD also offers you a possibility to try their line through 5 ml miniature. Could it get any better?

Oh yes it could! And it does! That mini, known as Love Dose have just gone through a total metamorphosis. From now on they hold 7 ml instead of 5 and have been repackaged into elegant & handy vials with sprays (instead of splash). Get a separate one (€25-28) as a perfect stocking stuffer or one of two available coffrets (€115-145) to gift more luxury. Plus they are refillable too!
