happy vday: light his fire

There's something about candles that invites, relaxes, calms, suggests and ensures a romantic evening is in store. When leading home fragrance expert Laura Slatkin wanted to create her own collection of scented candles, she drew on over a decade of experience in the prestige home fragrance market to develop an unparalleled fragrance experience. The result was NEST, a candle collection ($32 each) uniting rich color, texture and scent to enhance everyday living and provide a respite that sets the mood for love. My picks for Vday: Pink Jasmine (if you're feeling a little flirty) and Moss & Mint (for a clean, fresh, more manly scent). The landmark collection includes the following evocative fragrances:

Moss & Mint Candle: Garden mint, apple blossom, and muguet are infused with a touch of oakmoss and vetiver

Bamboo Candle: Flowering bamboo mingles with an array of white florals, sparkling citrus and fresh green accords

Pink Jasmine Candle: A rare pink jasmine is blended with frangipani flower and peony with under notes of cashmere wood
and white musk

Moroccan Amber Candle: Moroccan amber, sweet patchouli, heliotrope, and bergamot are accented with a hint of eucalyptus

Orange Blossom Candle: Orange blossom, orchid, tiare flower and freesia are combined with tangerine, lemon and musk

Wasabi Pear Candle: Anjou pear and fresh, ozonic watery note are infused with the essence of wasabi

Freesia Kiwi Candle: Freesia, jasmine and muguet are married with kiwi, Asian pear, and cassis

Periwinkle Hyacinth Candle: Periwinkle, hyacinth and lilac are combined with crisp green leaves and cloves

Mahogany Votive Candle: The sweetness of vanilla and caramel praline accents sandalwood, star anise and patchouli

Wild Oats & Bourbon Votive Candle: The essence of bourbon is blended with wild oats and mandarin ginger
