In Palm Beach, a Champagne Party to Celebrate the Smell of a $595 Candle
Its purpose is to celebrate the smell of a candle.
The candle costs $595.
According to a news release, a company called Fornasetti Profumi is releasing a "new candle and room fragrance" called Sole di Capri that "is redolent of high summer and long lazy days spent on the sun-drenched island. The intense southern Italian sunshine warms terracotta terraces, their sun-baked, heady dry scent mixing with the sea air and the surrounding citrus trees growing among the white-walled houses."
On its website, Babalu lists the price of this very special candle as $595.
At the party, champagne will be served, and "those who spend $300 or more worth of Fornasetti products will receive a gorgeous Fornasetti ceramic room diffuser, valued at $150!!"
There's a Babalu on Lincoln Road in Miami and now one at 21 Via Mizner on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach.
