Anthropologie in a Jar


I'm sure you've noticed that Anthropologie stores smell better than any place on earth-it's true, isn't it? Well, after some sleuthing, I have found that the answer is the Capri Blue Candles they sell and usually have burning in the stores. Although they come in several fragrances, the favorite at the many Anthropologie stores I have visited, and after talking to many store managers, is the Volcano which is composed of tropical fruits, sugared oranges, lemons, limes, and exotic mountain greens. I bought a candle and it is incredible. The wonderful scent lingers for hours even when you are not burning it. This same candle comes in many sizes and containers. The scent is citrusy, fresh, clean, and not too girly. Quite unisex actually. A perfect Christmas or hostess gift. (A wonderful idea for your guy's apartment)

haha yes! I have this candle at home myself -i was inspired by the store! I often eat my lunch with coworkers near the store in the Gtown park mall and the scent wafting out is just heavenly!

Thanks for the tip! I always wondered what Anthropologie was using.

Stefan-See, I was right-it's not too girly.

I've always wondered which candle they actually use in the store. I'm going to have to pick that up -- I also have the last candle pictured in a really pretty mottled silver mercury container I love it!

Jenn-You'll love it!

I do believe I will have to pick up a Volcano candle next time I'm in Anthropologie. You can never have enough delicious smelling candles :)

Absolutely gorgeous smell - I love these! I haven't tried them at home because I thought it might be overwhelming. Or maybe that's because they had 8 of them burning at the same time. I'm definitely going to get one.

Sanity Fair-I promise one is going to be just fine-they have them going all over the store as you said.
