So, you're telling us you don't have a thousand dollars to spend on a purse? Psssh! What are you, destitute? Oh, no, you're just responsible with your money. We guess that's okay. It's still important to treat yourself, though, and we suggest indulging a bit with Balenciaga's L'Essence Candle ($65). Hundreds less than a purse from the luxury label, this candle balances soft violet and a deeper woody note for a scent that's almost as rich and buttery as a new leather handbag.
