Candles as Books: Scents

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.
