Smells Like Holiday Spirit

Plus Jonathan Safran-Foer’s controversial new memoir, and a Jenna Leigh trunk show

CANDLES: It’s not too early to fill your home with the aroma of the holidays, right? We sniffed the lovely Pine & Eucalyptus Home Candle from Jo Malone, and it’s a little spicy (thanks to amber and frankincense), and a little forest-y (that’s the cypress, cinnamon and lavender). GET THIS: $65 at Jo Malone, 946 Madison Avenue, 212.472.0074.

LINGERIE: Jenna Leigh – whose Malawi lingerie collection we frothed about recently – is holding a trunk show of new items at sexy-skivvy purveyor Journelle. Sip cocktails, mingle and pick up a little lacey something to get you through the season. GET THIS: 7-9PM, Journelle, 3 East 17th Street, 212-255-7800.

BOOKSHELF: Vegetarian and sometime vegan Jonathan “Everything is Illuminated” Safran-Foer felt compelled to tackle questions about his diet choices in his nonfiction memoir “Eating Animals” ($25.99, Little, Brown) – on shelves this week -- because he has children, to whom he’ll have to explain these things pretty soon. Whatever you put on your plate, you can admire his thoughtful, philosophical, highly personal perspective. GET THIS: McNally-Jackson Books, 52 Prince Street; 212-274-1160.
