Well that didn’t take long, I’m already at my third candle!

This is a Northern Lights candle, by a NY based company of the same name, in business since 1978.

The scent of this candle is called Cotton Blossom & Dogwood. It’s a little soapier than what I’d usually get, but I enjoy the change of pace from my usual, woodier choices. Nick’s mom gave this lovely candle to me as a Christmas gift last year. Thoughtful Nick must have given the hint to her that next to tea, it’s just about the perfect gift for me.

When I moved to the new apartment, I made an arbitrary policy a few months ago to only buy and burn one candle at a time. The purchase of a new one is often very special to me so I figured it would be nice to share what's burning right now.

This is the Inspire candle by TwelveSouth. It’s a soy candle that’s poured in South Carolina.

I thought the idea of it was so adorable that I got myself one as a little holiday gift. Next to the lemony bergamot scent, I think my favorite thing about this candle is its packaging—I plan to wash it out after the candle burns out and use it as a little knick-knack container. ✨

This one's by Enlighten, a candle maker based in Arizona. The scent's called Caribbean Teakwood, and I got it for around $25 at my nearest Whole Foods..
I love teas with hints of black tea or sandalwood, so this one's a no-brainer. Nick and I had a laugh about how this scent was coded as a 'masculine' one on their line. Wood, tobacco scents = Men!

I burn my candles nearly every day, so I notice a candle of this size will last me about 3-4 weeks...maybe even less if I really enjoy the scent.
