Gorgeous scents and pretty pretty palm trees combine on the black glass containers offering three scents, Old Mantauk Highway, Palm Beach and West District Road.  Salt water, firs, wild iris, jasmine, lemon and lime are just some of the inspirations richly entwined in these candles.  Happy to report reversecommuter has bought two of the three…need to leave something for Santa to put in my stocking!
