    Inspired by The Ritz’s Bar Hemingway in Paris, Cire Trudon’s Ernesto Tobacco and Leather Scented Candle ($85) smells like a decadent evening out in the City of Light.

The right additions—Tom Ford blended decadent vanilla into his tobacco fragrance, while bourbon and cognac give Patch NYC’s Pipe candle a smooth aroma—make all the difference.
