I'm a candle skeptic. But taking the lid off of the new Charlie Gardner Monsoon Balsam scented candle made me a believer. The crisp blend of blood orange, eucalyptus, rosemary, evergreen, balsam, cedar, and white musk transported to me Christmas in India. Or, at least, that's what my nose told me.
Each candle comes in a lovely silver cup that'll make a pretty toothbrush holder once you've burned through your 65 hours worth of soy wax. It's an especially great holiday (and hostess) gift because a portion of every purchase benefits disadvantaged youth in Africa and the USA.
