since moving to india, shopping has been a challenge for me. for the first year and a half, i found myself going back to new york or montreal 2-3 times a year to stock up on clothing, home decor and furniture. one of my goals is to try and find items here that i love so i don’t end up coming back with 6+ suitcases each time. one of my favorite things to buy are candles. unfortunately, candles get quite heavy to pack, which is why i was so happy when a friend introduced me to the store, the white window in bandra. they carry an array of home decor, candles, cutlery, tableware, rugs and furniture. the store has become my go-to for candles and fun home decor pieces. the candles come in a variety of scents and they smell great. they are comparable to the diptyque candles (which i love) for a fraction of the price. the last time i stopped in, i picked up this skull piece, which i am loving in silver. it adds a nice masculine touch to the overwhelming amount of floral prints in my home. the only downside to the store is the staff, as their knowledge of the product and pricing is limited, so be patient.

small candles start at rs. 650
