Le Labo’s Santal 26 candle smells like a number of issues: amber, cedar, musk, sandalwood, and, maybe most significantly, Jennifer Lopez.
In line with a current story in The Lower concerning the beginnings of Le Labo’s cult-favorite fragrance Santal 33, the Santal 26 candle (the precursor to Santal 33) is such a favorite of J.Lo’s that she used to purchase “100 candles each month, typically 200.” The Lower’s Magnificence Editor-at-Giant Jane Larkworthy writes that Ian Schrager initially ordered a smokier model of the candle for his Gramercy Park Lodge. When prospects began turning up at Le Labo’s Soho retailer in search of what that they had smelled at Schrager’s lodge, the model realized that they had a winner on their arms, and the candle’s smoky and sandalwood-y scent would later outline Le Labo.
The candle is now one in every of Le Labo’s best-selling merchandise, and InStyle can verify that it’s certainly one in every of J.Lo’s favorite issues: Santal 26 was included in a care bundle of the singer’s private favorite issues given on a press journey final April for the debut of J.Lo’s make-up collaboration with Inglot. The Hustlers actor now apparently orders 50 jars of this candle a month, and we’re tremendously curious as to why our favorite woman from the block is obsessive about Santal 26. Nevertheless, we all know J. Lo isn’t alone: Blake Full of life, our different favorite woman from the (Higher East Facet) block, can be recognized to like this Le Labo candle. The current mom-of-three shared with Marie Claire in 2013 that the Santal 26 candle is a favorite “as a result of you may personalize the labels so that they make good presents.”
So in the event, you’re nonetheless struggling this vacation season with what to get the one that has every little thing, this candle makes the proper current. Sadly, the glass jar model of the candle that J.Lo and Full of life get is at present out of inventory on Nordstrom, however, fortunately, you may order the very same candle within the classic tin packaging that’s basic of Le Labo’s industrial-chic design. (At a decrease price too!) Whoever owns this candle gained’t simply be smelling like cedar or sandalwood — they’ll even be smelling like J.Lo. And that, we predict, is the last word present this vacation season.
