If there's one label that will get us excited about a candle it's the folks over at Buckler's. The Motley's house brand always hits it out of the park with their products and their Black Currant candle is just another great addition in a growing string of hits. The 100% soy wax candle has notes of black currant, narcissus, California Laurel, and white pepper and has a burn time of a little over 55 hours.

Bang & Olufsen might be a little late with their portable bluetooth speaker, but we think you'll ignore the fact once you see the specs. The A2 follows the beautiful styling of the Bang & Olufsen line with a minimalist aluminum shell design and a touch of full grain leather.
All the good stuff is on the performance side, of course. The BeoPlay A2 features their "True360" sound experience that puts dual speaker units on both sides so you'll be in the sweet spot no matter where you are. Most impressive is the A2's incredible battery life. On just one charge you get a full day's worth of juice.

While we wish for a permanent Monocle Shop to finally hit California (C'mon, what's the holdup, Tyler?), we jealously watch as Tokyo gets a new Monocle shop, a complement to their already existing Tokyo Cafe. Opening this month, the shop is located in the Tomigaya district, southwest from Yoyogi Park. Inside you'll find the latest Monocle Shop goods, collaborations, and a selection of Monocle issues both past and present.

As much as we love the slim profile of a card case, we wouldn't mind going back to a billfold if this wallet from MAKR was in our pockets. You can't go wrong with either of the leather choices and you've got Horween Latigo or Wickett and Craig English Bridle leather to choose from. You've got one cash pocket that is large enough for currency of all types and sizes and six card slots. The wallet is machine sewn and handsewn with rolled and painted edges.

"Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.
