Luxist Giveaway: Baroness von Neumann Candle Collection
One of the best thing about the cooler months is that it's candle season. It's time to curl up on the couch, legs tucked under a cozy throw and savor the indoor life. A new line of scented candles from Los Angeles socialite and lifestyle expert Baroness Monica von Neumann offers an elegant new option for sending delicious scent through the air. Baroness Monica von Neumann is a businesswoman and former Dior and Yves St. Laurent model who defines herself as one part Martha Stewart and another part Wendy Williams, mixing elegance with just a touch of Detroit soul. After taking care of her ill husband Austrian Baron John von Neumann, who died of brain cancer in 2003, she nurtured an interest in home decor and design eventually leading to her own lifestyle products line.
The candles have a 70+ hour burning time, longer than many similar candles. The candles use an all-natural soy-based wax and cotton wick that burns cleanly without the creation of soot. The candles are packed in a simple ivory and gold packaging featuring the von Neumann family crest. They'd also make a lovely hostess gift for the coming holiday season.
The new line comes in four scents inspired by Baroness von Neumann's jetsetting life: Atlas: sandalwood, Ceylon cinnamon and mahogany; Fete: clove bud, mandarin and Norwegian pine; Modena: orange blossom and lemon leaf; and Savon: jasmine, damask rose and red amber. The candles each sell for $38.50 and are available from the von Neumann website. Today we are giving away a set of all four candles valued at $154.
