I was thrilled to meet the owner and florist - Meredith Waga Perez of Belle Fleur NYC last night. Many of you may recall that I had a love affair with their candles in August on my trip to NYC. It was fun to meet such a lovely, vibrant, and of course, beauty obsessed woman. I told her that I still have an article from House and Garden where she did the most lovely bouquet of flowers. I then asked questions to get the 411 on all the candles. I told her that the Mayan Tuberose was my absolute favorite and we both agreed that this is truly a "bedroom candle." After picking up another Mayan Tuberose and Orange Blossom Pomegranate (for the living room) my Wednesday night was complete - until I got home in time to watch Gossip Girl. The new collection of candles - 5 brand new scents debut December 1. The only name I could remember was Chocolate and Tobacco. You know I'm all over these new candles for my birthday, plus I need to get a few for my beloved girlfriends.

I wouldn't be right here if you hadn't been right there
Southern girl, southern girl
Southern girl, southern girl."
