Product shots online stank. I uploaded my own with a dash of a Costume Box Original.
This past weekend, I ventured upstate to pick apples, eat (way too many) donuts and get lost in a maize maze. Along my travels, I ended up with salsa, barbecue sauce, donuts, scones, Jalapeno mustard and… a Yankee candle!?
So, Yankee is probably one of the least chic candles/fragranciers out there, I know. I remember in junior high and high school, they were all the rage in my tiny backwoods town - Spiced Pear, Midsummer’s Night, Clean Cotton, Macintosh - you name it, I probably had it at one time or another and so did every other house on the block. Embarrassment aside, Midsummer’s Night was one of my absolute favorites - a very heady, masculine scent that wasn’t the usual French Vanilla or Lavender, completely unconventional. I remember lighting it and blasting Depeche Mode. Ahhhh, I was … *cough cough* (I just guffawed) somethin’ else.
So, this weekend, as I was upstate, I found Yankee’s Witches’ Brew, a patchouli-based black votive that reminded me a little of Midsummer’s Night but with a more autumnal, spicy kick, and sure, even though it’s not the hippest of the hip, I gotta say, it has a strong scent that dissipates nicely in my humble little apartment. I recommend for a cheap thrill.
So basically we are eating the same meals, doing the same workout, and this weekend I am doing exactly what you did last weekend. TOTALLY NOT WEIRD JUST WHAT HAPPENS.
