City Pulse

By Candice Sabatini

For some, anniversaries and birthdays are all about the cake. For me, it’s all about the candles, and in this case, it’s all about one big beautiful candle.

Ok, truth time: I’m all about the cake too. (but that’s not important today)

Say Happy Anniversary to Elizabeth Arden. They’re celebrating 100 years of making women more beautiful. And what better way to celebrate than with creating a lovely candle?

The stylish graphics on the porcelain canister are inspired by the famous Red Door on Fifth Ave and has images of fashionable women throughout the century posed within the landmark building. The candle itself is scented with the classic Red Door fragrance that’s been slightly updated with notes of orange flower, ylang ylang, freesia, peony and lily of the valley. Though it comes with a nice porcelain lid, keep it off to diffuse the floral scent even when the candle isn’t lit.

It’s a limited edition and so once they’re gone, that’s it; you’ll be out of luck. So think ahead, think Mother’s Day, bridesmaids, future birthdays, or just enjoy one for yourself.

Elizabeth Arden would like to give a lucky Beauty News NYC fan one of these pretty candles. All you need to do is ask. Send an email to by Thursday March 18th, with Elizabeth Arden Candle Give-A-Way in the subject line, and include your name, address and phone number in the body. We’ll randomly select one of you, and your candle will arrive shortly thereafter. How easy is that? Good luck!

This limited edition candle is available at Elizabeth Arden counters or on
