We admit the Prêt-à-por Karl Lagerfeld teabags were a great way to feel like we were sipping a cuppa with the Kaiser of collaborations. And even though the tea bags weren’t really a collaboration, there have been plenty of those over the years.
And just when we thought there couldn’t possibly be another item that Karl could invent/collaborate/create, the collab king does it again with a collection of scented candles.
His candle collection, which is an assortment of his favorite fragrances– debuted this week at Welton London’s flagship store in Paris.
With each item embossed with a side silhouette of the iconic Chanel Creative Director, the line offers three different fragrances — a light and feminine Oud & Bois de Santa (Agarwood and Sandalwood), a deeper Figue & Poivre Noire (Fig and Black Pepper), and Essence Rar.
But is Lagerfeld’s menage a trois of olefactory goodness worth the hefty $180 for all three? Depends who you ask.
But if you’re like us, $60 per candle may be just a tad too steep, unless, of course, there’s $40 worth of gold coins buried under the candle wax.
But not all is lost.
For all you DIY’ers out there, you can always buy a candle that won’t compete with any of your usual monthly bills and draw Lagerfeld on it yourself. If you are artistically challenged, slap on a Lagerfeld-themed sticker from Redbubble and your apartment will be smelling fresh in no time.
