Whether it's for a bubble bath, a romantic dinner or self-care Sunday, these seven local candle brands have got what you need.
It’s summertime in Cairo, which means it’s time to sit back and relax. You have your air conditioner on to keep you cool, your television on to keep you entertained, and five different lights turned on in the same hallway because why not. All of a sudden, everything goes pitch black, and you remember what summertime in Cairo actually means: constant electrical outages. Luckily for you, the humble candle is older than electricity, and over the course of the century it has turned from a utility into a luxury, coming in a wide variety of calming scents and intoxicating aromas. We’ve compiled a list of local candle brands that will help you breeze through the summer, no matter how dark it gets.
