Candle Curiosities

81

For some, the pursuit of beauty doesn't just stem from hair and makeup—it is released through a whole manner of different medium. For D.L. & Co., beauty is explored through candles and fragrance. Created seven years ago, D.L. & Company have been creating homemade perfumes and decadently sculpted candles that, quite literally, take your breath away. From skulls in shades of neon pink, black and silver to jewel-encrusted apples and sculpted, wax-weeping busts, these creations are a reaction to the mundane that life sometimes presents us. And we’re obsessed.

With a desire to bring objects of opulence and beauty to those who yearn for the uncommon and exquisite, D.L. & Co. have surpassed the expectations that you would normally bestow on a candle. The creations are "intended to unfold like a love letter, each painstaking detail revealing a procession of small delights," and honestly, that is what they do. The scents themselves are subtle and intoxicating, gently unfurling in a room without overpowering. Available online and in select boutiques, the wondrous creations bring a touch of elegance to a room, and never fail to impress.
