Yes, this candle is purple, the color that's apparently considered the most feminine shade on the spectrum. Yes, it's called "The Fire of Violet" (whatever that means). But it smells deliciously of grapefruit and tobacco, two scents we might never have thought to combine (one more reason we're not candle makers) that smell amazing together: bright and refreshing, yet also warm. And because it was hand sculpted under water it doesn't look like any other candle we've ever seen, either. Which makes it kind of cool. Unique, even. Which is exactly what owning a purple candle makes you—in a good way.
Plus, chances are your girlfriend has known about Le Feu De L'Eau for a while now, and burning their latest offering will score you bonus points for being a guy who knows a thing or two about buzzy candle brands. We're sure that'll pay off down the line somehow. And in the meantime your apartment smells great.
"The Fire of Violet" retails for $62.
