The Missoni Candle That Costs $500

This Candle Costs More Than a Car Payment

If you happen to live in a world where money is meaningless, may we suggest you take a gander at this Missoni Home Torta candle ($520)? It's a pretty four-wick candle with a zigzag pattern and a Missoni plaque stuck to the side, so everyone will know it's designer. Also, it costs more than some peoples' rent.

This is the sort of thing that makes me wonder if, somewhere, there are candle connoisseurs just waiting to snap these up, and candle museums that will need one for their collections. Because what else could explain something costing this much? It isn't even perfumed, so there are no fancy oils to use as an excuse. Plus, for $520, you can get a candle-making kit, take a candle-making course, then make 80 candles yourself and still have money to burn.

I just read Deluxe by Dana Thomas, and it's definitely worth a read in case you're interested in how luxury brands have changed over the years. It's a pretty candle, but you're definitely paying (significantly!) for the brand association.

I can't believe money is so abundant for some people that $520 for a candle is even an expense worth thinking about.

I rather buy a Dyson vacuum or spring for vaccine in a developing nation.

Boo! I'm not paying for that crap if it doesn't have the ability to clean my house as well. Keep it moving candle.

This reminds me of the Balmain t-shirt that cost over $1,000. Totally unnecessary.
