IMG_7059Welcome to my new obsession: The AU candle collection by Andrej Urem. When I first saw Mr. Urem selling his handmade beauties on the street in SoHo, I couldn’t stop staring. I had never seen anything quite like these sensual, architectural shapes. They are just so good.

Usually, if I’m going to pay for a candle, I’d expect a nice woodsy scent. But these soy wax creations ($35 apiece) engage your other senses, and that’s fine by me. As the candles burn down, they glow from the inside, and thanks to the stunning 3-D forms, the results are truly exceptional.  The candles are also available at MoMA, as well as a number of other stores (listed on the website). Check out more pics after the jump.  Xo
