D.L. & Co
We love DL&Co. because their candles are designed to be different from other candles that you have seen before. Instead of stating a fragrance on a label – this brand goes beyond, nestling a high-grade, aromatic candle within a handcrafted, enameled work of art. Their candles have themes and a nature-inspired loveliness that has never been done before. For this, we admire and adore their artisan endeavors. The candles of DL&Co. are detailed and beautiful – almost too gorgeous to burn, but then the fragrances spreads throughout your home, and you are officially in heaven. This brand is seductive, vivid, and imaginative – all awesome reasons to be enamored with their artwork.

DL&Co. Beautiful Packaging
Each of the DL&Co. candles has exquisite, perfect attention to detail that goes unmatched. A candle will arrive in beautiful packaging that begins with a box of hand-stitched Burmese silk. A black satin ribbon (imported from France) adds a touch more elegance and refinement, while the candle itself is nestled on a bed of hand-pleated Switzerland tissue. The colors of the tissue paper depend on the fragrance of the candle, and the entire reception of one of these candles is a decadent, intimate experience. The beautiful packaging of the DL&Co. candles is moreso an unveiling of fine art than it is simply receiving a package in the post.
The Forbidden Fruit
The Forbidden Fruit is a collection of DL&Co. keepsake candles in beautiful, handcrafted containers of gold and colorful enamel. The holders are brass and shaped to represent the scent of the candle within, such as apples and pears. Each set comes with a quartet of different colors – green, gold, red, and pink – and the fruits are miniature for expressive display anywhere in your home. The candles themselves are power-packed with fragrances – thorn apple being the base of each candle. The scents are sweet and thought-provoking, and their forbidden moniker represents seduction, temptation, and sensuous desire. These DL&Co. favorites are extra-hard to resist.
The best part of beauty is that which no picture can express.
