Candle, candle burning bright




Candles make great gifts during the holidays -- especially as hostess gifts. But faced with the glut available, finding real quality is tough. So look no further than Votivos. Contained in a thick glass cylinder accented with a silver wax seal and packed in a prettily detailed box, these O list candles are out of this world. Slow burning, they last up to 50 hours, but since the scintillating scent is quickly and thoroughly distributed, you don't need to burn them long to fill your house with the aroma of Soku lime, mahogany, red currant or Moroccan fig. Average price is $22. The soaps are equally luxurious and long-lasting for only $9.50. Both are available at Rue de Leon (131 E. Ponce de Leon Ave., Decatur, 404-373-6200) and Traders Neighborhood Store (485-B Flat Shoals Ave., 404-522-3006).
