Balenciaga lovers: here's something from the French luxury house that you can get for just $65—also, it will make your home smell like Balenciaga. Introducing the L'Essence candle, which will arrive at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and at Balenciaga boutiques this November. Smells like "delicate flowers and soft mosses," says the release, and will "set the scene for a beautiful nightfall, when nature exhales all its rarest scents." You guys, nature's rarest scents? What a deal for $65.
