How to choose a scent that's right for you

Since you can't smell our candles through the internet (maybe one day?), we've created a guide to help you shop for your perfect match.

    I bought this as a present, and now I am going to be getting one for myself. It smelt incredible and the owners were so kind. I will absolutely be buying again.

    Candle smells so good! I bought four different scents for gifts but I really want to keep them for myself. Guess I need to buy more for me!
