Let's Talk to $ 800 Candles – Lazy Man and Money


I have been extremely busy lately, hence the tumbleweeds on this blog.

One of the benefits of blogging about money is that there are always new stories to write. Money does not go away and people will always do interesting things to get them.

For example, five years ago, I wrote about Kanye West's $ 120 white plain t-shirt. I guess he needed that money to buy his private jet.

I prefer to buy very cheap t-shirts. They do the work and I can continue with life.

So, what about an $ 800 candle? I did not know it was a problem, but the luxury candle market is booming.

In spite of all my efforts, I will never be able to get a clear idea of ​​"the lifestyle space, especially the beauty, wellness and fashion industries".

When I read candle news at $ 800, it motivates me to teach my children how to make candles. They will not be "luxury" in all respects, but it will always fulfill its primary function: light and heat. And of course, there is a pedagogical advantage. (It's my attempt to look smart using big words.) Has it worked?

I'll do it short and nice. I do not understand this delusional pricing. Yankee Candle has a deal for about $ 13 a pot this holiday season. This is the premium brand. There are imitations at a fraction of the price. If it was like DoTerra's essential oils, I would have it. However, it is not wrapped in a pyramid.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
