Damn, I want—no, NEED—more fancy candles in my life. I went to a few friends' apartments while I was in NYC and, damn, they had those tiny shoeboxes they call homes filled to the brim with amazingly nice candles. Maybe amazing scents offset the crippling claustrophobia that is New York City living. But the real takeaway here is: The better your apartment smells, the more put together your guests will think you are. If one of my friends has a unique candle in a rare scent, I just assume they are thriving on both a professional and personal level. You too can trick your friends into assuming you have your shit together by buying this Maak Lab white cedar candle. Or, you know, just cover up that Chipotle bomb you desecrated your bathroom with.
