Pineapple Express: Slatkin & Co.’s New Figural Candles
Spongebob may live in a pineapple under the sea, but I bet you his abode smells like Crabby Patties and not some delicious tropical paradise. You, however, can aim to give your home a Caribbean vibe with these new pineapple-shaped figural candles from fragrance emporium Slatkin & Co.
The white ceramic, 5.5 oz. pineapple-shaped figural candle (pictured second from top) is filled with the new Island Nectar scent, a blend of tropical fruits, vanilla, rum and musk, and the cut-outs along the upper half make for a nice, Jack-o-Lantern-like glow. The second design, pictured at top, consists of a smaller, 3 oz., pineapple-shaped, open-top candle container, and is available in light pink or yellow. The yellow version is filled with the Island Nectar candle, while the pale pink style is filled with another new scent, Pineapple Orchid, which mixes pineapple, orchid and black currant notes for a fruity-floral mix.
Now, I have to admit, I haven't yet had a chance to smell these two new scents, but I'm very excited to do so because Slatkin & Co. has yet to disappoint me with its rich, layered, potent, and long-lasting candles and home fragrance systems.
And, while the pineapple-shaped figurals are definitely on the kitschy side, they're also a lot of fun! Just imagine throwing a Caribbean-inspired party: turning your house into a tiki hut of sorts, serving fruity daiquiris and margaritas, decorating tables with exotic flowers and having the entire scene lit by these candles… Now, how sexy would that be? Okay, my Chiquita Bananas, get to party planning!
