Its #spookyszn!!!  Today we released our October Small Batch - HOCUS POCUS.  This candle is one of the first we ever made wayyy back in the day.  However, we've saved it for just this occasion.  Hocus Pocus is a cauldron of fragrances - oud, incense, myrrh, frankincense, smoke, and so much more.  Meant to conjure scenes of a gathering of witches around a campfire, this candle is sure to be a seance for the senses.  Head to the shop now to get yours today! Miss out on this one at your own peril ☠️

And yes, this automatic discount can be stacked with FALL15 😉

What I'm reading - The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton.  Given that we're on back-end of the pandemic, or better put - the virus is approaching endemic status, it seemed appropriate to pick this novel up.  Crichton was a master of suspense and story telling and this novel consistently ranks as quite possibly his best.  I'll report back on my thoughts once I'm finished.

What I'm watching - Lizzo Playing James Madison's Crystal FluteI'm intrigued.  This is pretty cool. I have read about the crystal flute (albeit super briefly) in a biography of our 4th president. 

What I'm watching, Part II - Abbott Elementary on ABC.  My wife has been watching this show over the last year and I've caught bits and pieces, here and there.  I sat down to watch the Season 2 premiere earlier this week and thoroughly enjoyed it.  I'd categorize the show as a spiritual successor of sorts to Parks and Rec and The Office.

What I'm burning - Gulf.  This is one of a our summer seasonals that we released a few months back. It is more of a masculine scent, combining sea salt and musky notes.  The more I burn it, the more I like it.  It transports me to the Gulf of Mexico and puts me right at the water's edge, at least in my mind.

What I'm listening to - Running on Empty cover by Billy Strings.  The original by Jackson Browne is unquestionably a classic.  This cover is pretty damn good too fwiw.
