So I’m on a bit of a candle kick lately. Ring candles regular candles, all sorts of scents. I know there are bookish candles and that’s my next order of business, getting some of those, however I like to imagine what the different scents from the books might be.
Pizza: American as Panner Pie
Who would want a Pizza candle you say? I don’t know, I think some people would pizza is more than just a scent in this book. It’s about the heart of being yourself and the heart of others coming to understand you. Notes would include cheese and paneer.
Amazon: American as Paneer Pie
Cotton Candy: Foreverland
This independent book is about the wonder of an amusement park, but not being able to run away from your problems forever. Notes would include sugar, and excitement.
Ocean: The Sea In Winter
In this book the main character has an injury she’s dealing with but doesn’t want to admit how much it is hurting her eventually she realizes she needs to lean on her family and community for support. There are notes of a warm bonfire, sand, and the sea.
Amazon: The Sea in Winter
Frybread: Ancestor Approved
This candle is the scent of community but specifically the frybread stand warm and tasty its like one of those bakery candles that makes you hungry except that its savory.
Amazon: Ancestor Approved
Algae: Dark Waters
This is the kind of candle you’d only find by the sea, but maybe as a joke candle on the ack of the shelf it smells faintly of the bottom of a lake. There are note of fish and rot.
Amazon: Dark Waters
Roses: The Bone Spindle
This candle smells like roses but there is something more, it’s like roses preserved in glass and there are hints of dust too.
Amazon: The Bone Spindle
Biryani Rice: Salaam, With Love
This is another special candle, though it comes out all year there is always a special Ramadan special edition that comes out every year that manages to smell extra good. There are hints of spice and love. There is also a special surprise at the bottom of this candle.
Amazon: Salaam with Love
