HEY. I’m over on THE AMERICAN EDIT talking about my favorite American-made goods! Such an honor to be featured as I’m a huge proponent of buying and supporting local. Plus, how gorgeous is Rita’s site? Love what she’s doing over there.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted one of my essentials, but since I spend a good portion of my income on candles, I thought it only made sense to share my essential one: Unionmade and Baxter of California’s KML candle. It’s a mouthful, but I promise it smells like perfection. Well I guess that depends on how you define perfection, but for me, a campfire in the middle of the forest is what I’d prefer (not ACTUALLY, just in candle-form). This Unionmade x Baxter candle smells exactly like that.
Don’t forget I’m terrible at describing scents, but it’s a blend of Cedar and Sandalwood, with a layer of musk that really hits you after a few minutes of burning it. It’s not super strong but it definitely makes my whole place smell good. I often pair it with my favorite incense, which adds another layer of campfire, and then you’re outside under the stars surrounded by the woods IS WHAT IT’S LIKE.
Anyway, I personally like the 3-wick version because we go through them so quickly, but they’ve recently come out with this ceramic one that’s making my life a whole lot better, etc. Lucky for us, there’s a Unionmade store just minutes from our apartment in Brentwood and we are literally there every few months stocking up. Want me to pick one up for you? Can’t live without.

I really love a good smelling house (but who doesn’t?) and right now, we’re all about burning incense in my apartment. We burn miniature-sized logs in that miniature-sized cabin and our whole apartment smells of woodsy trees and burning fire. And YES, the smoke billows out of the log cabin’s chimneys – I can’t take it, it’s so cute.
Sometimes we’ll also burn a candle in the same scent family (like a cedar wood-based candle) to really kick it up a notch. This Unionmade x Baxter candle is our all-time favorite. All we need are ingredients for s’mores and we’d have a full-fledged campfire situation.
What are your favorite kind of scents?
*PS, here’s the log cabin!
