These candles, made in Livorno, Italy, are magnificent, juicy orbs of color. Honestly, we were beside ourselves when we saw them – every luscious shade – lined up in a linear rainbow. These are a few of our favorites: the colors that go with everything and the ones that will punctuate a table with soap opera level drama.
Each candle is first dyed by immersing it in a special opaque wax bath. After at least 24 hours, the candle is immersed a second time in a natural cellulose-based varnish which takes up to six days to completely dry. They also hold their shape while burning, and melt down into their shiny shell.
We're not sure "navy" does justice to this candle, which is the Platonic manifestation of the color blue. It evokes both air and water and goes with just about every room color you can imagine.
