While much of the decor in her Santa Barbara residence is noteworthy, it is her choice of accessories that has got people talking. The biggest talking point, though, is her choice of candle, which is, unsurprisingly, one of the best candles on the market.  The candle in question is the Bassett Rose Water Candle (opens in new tab) from Soho Home – a scent that combines delicate notes of geranium, lemon, and bergamot with musky, wooden and spicy aromas.   In her interview with The Cut (opens in new tab), Meghan pairs the lit candle with ’the gentle tones of a flamenco-inflected guitar’ that fill the room where she sits. The Duchess explains that the founder and CEO of Soho House, Nick Jones, was a friend ‘from long before she met Harry.’  Meghan Markle’s favorite candle is labeled as an ‘ode to the English rose’ and draws inspiration from the Walled Garden at Babington House, a Grade II-listed manor set in 18 acres of the English countryside (and frequented by celebrities).  It has top notes of lemon, middle notes of geranium, and a base of guaiac woods. The scent is a ‘bespoke fragrance’ created by an expert perfumer for Soho House.  The brand, which owns the Soho Home branch, started as a private members club in London but is now a global empire, with clubs in New York, West Hollywood, Malibu, and Austin, to name but a few. You can also shop its homeware and candles similar to Meghan’s on Net-a-Porter (opens in new tab).  Other notable living room ideas from the interview include a ‘cozy chair,’ and the room is described as being ‘climate-controlled’, with large ceilings that were drenched in sunlight. The Bassett Rose Water Candle knows how to make a statement in the Californian royal residence – and with an approximate burn time of 70 hours, we expect it will remain in the home for a long time to come. We’re adding one to our cart right now.
