Jo Malone Candle Collection

Who: The business traveler

What: Jo Malone Candle Collection

Why: There are few things as unglamorous as a businessperson's hotel. If you often travel for work, you know what I mean. Almost invariably these hotels have the word "suites" in their name, which generally just means there's a kitchenette so that you can pretend that you are not living out of a suitcase. It never works. These dark, stale hotel rooms are enough to make you reconsider your profession. But, oddly, the who experience is made dramatically better with the addition of a travel candle.

I'm sure you've heard or read about starlets traveling with their favorite overpriced candle. There is a reason: it helps. And this 6-piece Jo Malone Candle Collection can serve the same purpose for the business traveller on your gift list. Featuring travel-perfect 1.05 oz. versions of Jo Malone's best-loved candle scents -- Lime Basil and Mandarin, Grapefruit, Pomegranate Noir, Nectarine Blossom and Honey, Orange Blossom Cologne, and Wild Fig and Cassis -- this set is all that is needed for a dramatically better business travel experience.
