The Manolo Candle
Fashion sites recently buzzed with the news that the illustrious Manolo Blahnik wasn't completely happy with the "Sex and the City" phenomenon that led to his shoes having increased name recognition. Apparently the fact that most people now know his name is somehow offensive to him as he has been quoted as saying that the show led to a vulgarization of his name. Manolo is not above using his own name for increased profit, now, for fans of the shoe there is a Manolo candle. What does Manolo smell like? It has notes of fig, ivy, violet, chocolate and musk. The candle which comes in a brushed glass holder with a big black Manolo logo on it. The mineral wax candle sells for $75. Ironically this type of lower-priced Manolo offering could be a big hit with the "vulgar" hordes he decries who can't spend a few hundred dollars on shoes but still want something with the Manolo name.
