It was only a matter of time before the fashion industry's favorite florist profited on their name and reputation. Launching scented candles, Belle Fleur, the haute urban flower shop now offers their signature beautiful bouquets in a minimalist brown glass container, packaged in a chic, lizard-skin baby blue box. Clean classic scents like Mayan Tuberose, White Orchid Tea and Jasmine Verbena remind me of vineyards in the South of France and my friend's home in South Hampton, sans the 3-hour Jitney ride.
Final Word: There's nothing worse than an overpowering Yankee Candle (Whoever created the scent Canary Island Banana should be shot.) But these subtle scents happen to be restrained, tasteful and lovely- just like their flowers. I plan to get each kind. www.bellefleurny.com
