When it’s your turn to host bookclub
Homesick Library Candle
Let’s Get LIT-erary, y'all. Every book lover knows that old-book smell is impossible to replicate, but Homesick’s Library candle sure does give us that same warm fuzzy feeling. We love this candle for a light scent that's comforting without being sweet or floral. (We're not in the business of giving anyone a headache here!) Bring it out for your next bookclub, it’ll be sure to ignite some illuminating conversation.

For Your Next Dinner Party
Boy Smells' LES candle
Anyone else ever invite all your friends over to show off your skills and take a new cookbook for a spin? Perfect for when you spend ALL day cooking (and re-cooking the ones that didn’t go so well), leaving you with zero time to clean your apartment. Boy Smells' LES candle will cover up the burnt smell from your first batch of failed roasted veggies (if you're a domestic goddess like me), but is subtle enough to let your turmeric chicken really shine. Light this fancy-smelling candle as soon as you get the “running late, on my way,” text. We promise no one will notice the unfolded laundry you shoved in the closet or the pile of recycling and old mail flyers you’ve been meaning to take out – they'll have this candle and a full meal to disrtract them.

When You Want to Go Apple-Picking
Trader Joe's Honey Crisp Apple Candle
An apple (candle) a day keeps the stale air smell away. Stroll to your local Trader Joe's (this one's going to have to be an in-store purchase) and pick up a Honeycrisp Apple-scented candle to bring outdoorsiness indoors, especially if you're far from any signs of an orchard. Good news: At Trader Joe's, there might even be a hay bale to sit on while you wait in line, and carrying a candle home is a lot lighter than a bushel of apples. Pair it with their apple cider donuts and ignite that flannel fall feeling.
