What’s on the ELLE edi­tors’ radar this month.

KANDLE’S ON FIRE

Don’t let our ter­ri­ble pun dis­tract you from the fact that Mon­tre­al­based singer Kandle is about to be ev­ery­where. The daugh­ter of 54-40’s Neil Os­borne, she has been steadily carv­ing out her own spot in the mu­sic scene for al­most a decade. Her voice is a dreamy, me­an­der­ing de­light, and her sopho­more LP, Holy Smoke, is as dark and moody as a David Lynch movie.

AP­PLAUSE

The ELLE Canada team will be outof-of­fice on Oc­to­ber 5. The fact that it’s the same date that Bradley Cooper’s di­rec­to­rial de­but—a re­make of the Hol­ly­wood clas­sic dra­matic ro­mance A Star Is Born star­ring Lady Gaga—opens in the­atres is purely co­in­ci­den­tal.

PER­FECT SCENTS

“A wo­man who doesn’t wear per­fume has no fu­ture,” Coco Chanel once said. We wouldn’t go that far, but we will say that your fu­ture should in­clude at least one of the heady new scents from the fash­ion house, in­spired by the ro­mance of the routes to the late de­signer’s favourite cities. Les Eaux de Chanel ParisBiar­ritz Eau de Toi­lette Spray ($149 for 125 mL, chanel.ca)

HELLO, LOVER

ICYMI: Car­rie Brad­shaw’s fash­ion pet peeve is back. But these aren’t the scrunchies of your youth—or of the 2003 Man­hat­tan tourist. The hair ties, in fab­rics from silk to patent leather, are high-fash­ion enough to wear any­where—even a fancy restau­rant in Meat­pack­ing. Silk scrunchie ($156, at So­phie Buhai, so­phiebuhai.com)

ROOM WITH A VIEW

Surely noth­ing bad can hap­pen when you dis­cover a hole in the floor of your apart­ment and start spy­ing on/fall­ing for your dreamy down­stairs neigh­bours, right? Nope, noth­ing at all, as ev­i­denced in Claire Fuller’s third novel, Bit­ter Or­ange, which is set dur­ing a steamy sum­mer in the late 1960s on a crum­bling es­tate out­side of Lon­don, Eng­land.
