Every day, a few minutes after 1, I join my friends for lunch in the cafeteria at work. There, we swap stories, vent our righteous indignation, and discuss social issues, like bath bombs for men. (It’s a thing. They’re called man grenades.) At precisely 1:30, I get up for my daily serving of tea: a small cup of Earl Grey with a splash of vanilla cream.
There are few scents more comforting to me than this one, so when I saw this Earl Grey candle at a nearby boutique, I put it at the top of my list. When I opened the lid, I fell in love immediately. That combination of bergamot, sugar, and cream soothes me like nothing else. In fact, a dear friend of mine gifted me a bar of Earl Grey soap (also by K. Hall), and I can’t bear to use it. I keep it on the sink in my bathroom, and every time I open the door, I let that scent envelop me.
I’ve been very good about saving money lately, but I think it’s time for this little treat. I’m looking forward to spending some long evenings reading, with hints of Earl Grey wafting through the apartment now and then.
You can find this particular candle here.
What about you? What’s your favorite scent?
