A burning question......
Help! Anyone out there know where you can buy these wonderful French tapers here in the USA? My box of 20 bougies is almost empty. I love these non-drip, slow burning candles for the dinner table - they have holes allowing the melted wax to drip down inside the candle, a brilliant idea. I found this box several years ago but don't recall where. The places I've unearthed online are out of stock. Does this mean I need to plan another visit to France? Or perhaps my brother and his wife will read this and tell me they can grab me a box right there in their little French village! I'll be waiting.
Do you burn candles in your home? What's your favorite perfume? I love the lighter scents of linen, cotton, sea salt.......but I must say the tomato and blackcurrant one I was given in England on my last visit is the most fabulous and unusual fragrance of all.

Should have known my wonderful Francophile friend Penny at Comforts of Home (where she's having a great 'French giveaway') would know where to find bougies!! Thanks for the info Penny. Looking for a great gift for friends whose table settings include candlelight? They would definitely be delighted to receive a box of Bougies la Francaise.........until you get a trip to France looks like you can buy them here!
