Gifts For Everyone: Dolce Vita Candle

12/04/2006 at 05:00 PM ET

Faced with a stack of holiday party invites, but not sure what stylish gift to get the hostess for her hospitality? Try “The Good Life” candle by Dolce Vita, $115. Not just your average candle, it’s a sophisticated but sweet mixture of black and red currant, violet and tobacco leaf. And your host won’t be the only one enjoying the signature smell — it burns in every Valentino boutique in the country and even in the homes of Jay- Z, Beyonce, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Sure to get you invited back to next year’s shindig!

Available by calling Dolce Vita’s toll free number 1-800-253-6206.

Thanks, but I think I’ll stick to Yankee Candles! I’m sure it smells delightful, though (or at least it should, based on its price tag)!

Ashleigh on

yikes! $115 for a candle? Why not donate that money to a better cause instead? That will spread the holiday cheer better!

Christian on

Seriously, that price tag is just sickening…

goinsbertha on

I’d rather buy shoes…….

While 115$ is a lot for a candle, I have to say they are great. My friend was given one as a gift and fell in love. If the $ isn’t an issue to you, they will definitely make an impression.

these famous people have not a problem buying this type of candle because they caaaaaaaannnnn,thats just like one of us buying a five dollar candle,its what you can afford,its just a normal thing to spend that type of money on stuff like that,if we all had the money that they did we would be buying 115 dollar candles too.its funny when people say put it to a good cause,wellllll the last time i read,the famous do give a lot to causes,you know why because they caaaaaannn and they do.

Yankee Co. is just as good! Dolce Vita’s prices are too steep of a price for me.

Sammy Shick on

$115.00 for a candle. What makes them so great? Im told by a very good surce they are off the shelf Walmart candles with a little scent added to them. I don’t who buys them. I never will. Go pound it!!!!

Tracy Henry on

I have never burned a more beautiful, wonderful, scented candle. I am very satisfied with my candles. I will purchase these special luxury candles for future special events in my life. My favorite is “In The Moment”.

Lindsay on

After spending $200 + on these candles, good luck receiving them. I along with others are still waiting on them to come in! Doesn’t sound like a “luxurious” way to run a business to me.

Kim Stern on

The toll free number you gave in the article about Dolce Vita candles is incorrect. Could you please send me the correct toll free number where i can order the candles .

Thank you in advance for your time
