The candle emits a pleasant scent of musky cinnamon, which if it emanated from the foot of a cigar, would be considered even more pleasurable to the nonsmoker. It almost has a cologne-like smell that could, perhaps, save you a spritz in the bathroom following a smoking night on the town or an evening of poker.
The candle is housed in an attractive six-ounce frosted glass tumbler with a golden lid (when emptied of candle wax, it might make a good vehicle for a shot of Bourbon). The woman in your life could very easily mistake it for a toiletry accoutrement and buy three to put in a row on a bathroom shelf, but the Ashton logo emblazoned on the front of the cup reminds us of the item's roots in tobacco.
Ashton Scented Candles are made in France and have a suggested retail price of $25 at tobacconists across the United States.
