Brand Spotlight: Beeswax Candles with Apis Cera

November 29, 2018

I love the simple elegance of beeswax candles and have had my eye on these beauties since last year when I discovered this French brand, Apis Cera, via Jamie Beck of Ann Street Studio.   It was a pleasure to befriend the owner and I was so pleased to receive two boxes of the Lucienne tapers which come as a set of 9 this past month, just in time for the holiday season (and our Thanksgiving table, see below).   The packaging is exquisite but more importantly, the candles are light and lovely, burn beautifully and free of all the pollutants and additives which make up many taper candles.   I love that each is rolled by hand with natural ingredients and think that they would make the most wonderful hostess or holiday present this season.

They look beautiful in these crystal candlestick holders and also in silver, and I love the idea of burning this one on a cold gray morning while you’re working at your desk, and would use these for bath time — the epitome of simple luxury!  Below is a picture of the box and tissue, a beautiful presentation.

    Hello Lucy. I just now discovered your blog. In your October 2018 post on India Hicks, there is a cinnamon colored suede handbag with gold tone hardware. Is that an India Hicks item? I did not see it on her site, and was wondering where I could purchase it. Thanks so much.
