Match Point

light up your life!

Burned. Dumped. Cut to the quick.

There’s no reason to hang onto old flames when there are Himalayan Trading Post candles.

Northern India native Julia Leaphart pours and packages embossed and distressed vessels in her Conyers studio. The pint-size, fair trade votives brim with 50-plus hours of scent. Pick from honeysuckle (with ylang-ylang and clove notes), peony (tinged with white violet and rose), and Mediterranean fig (wax poetic over green apple and oak moss hints).

Want to rekindle the magic? Leaphart also packages DIY kits to make refilling her free-form candle trays a snap.

Considering, they’re a breath of fresh air.

Available at Mingei World Arts, 427 Church Street, Decatur (404-371-0101); online at himalayantradingpost.com.
