“Malin + Goetz’s Dark Rum has notes of plum and bergamot, which blend nicely with my vintage leather couch to create a deep, calming smell—but says nothing of my character: I much prefer a glass of Rosé.” – Sam Walker, Assistant Accessories Editor

Malin + Goetz Dark Rum Candle, $52,


“The newest candle from NEST is perfect for fall, but also has hints of citrusy currants that remind you of an endless summer. It is the only candle I burn.” – Gillian Sagansky, Assistant to the Editor in Chief
