Girl in a Sweater Candle
*LIMITED EDITION * AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST*
Girl in a Sweater was inspired by hot apple cider Ingrid had last year (and can't stop thinking about!), her love of fall and the feelings of melancholy that inevitably come with change. This crisp, sophisticated, slightly smoky apple fragrance explores the complexities of independence through the central character of the "girl in a sweater."
Ingrid designed this scent with a tone of melancholy, the kind that comes with living in a big city like New York. It's magic, but it's also difficult and there are moments where you can feel like just another face in the crowd. Picture the girl in a sweater single and dating, in-between two big relationships, one that has come to pass and one yet to reveal itself.
This melancholy is not about being alone, as she relishes her independence, it's more about the sadness that comes along with taking a less traditional path. Perhaps waiting longer than her peers to get married or not getting married at all, choosing a career others don't understand and having no one else to rely on financially.
The girl in a sweater allows herself these moments of melancholy in order to feel the full breadth of happiness for the path that she's chosen, because she truly does love it. She's choosing herself over the expectations of others and giving herself the life she wasn't able to have when she was younger. That feels like real growth and independence.
For Ingrid, autumn is the season that reminds her of this lesson. It signals that change is supposed to happen – and even nature can't always be bright and green all year.
Imagine: Autumn in nyc, hot apple cider with a splash of bourbon, a gust of crisp air following you into a cocktail bar, a date with someone new, smoky embers from a fire the night before

BY THE WAY...
All of our products are made by hand, so you may notice some slight variations or imperfections. This includes: small dents or scratches on the packaging, minor discoloration of the wax, labels that aren't perfectly straight, etc. None of these things impact the quality of the candle or its burn.
The total essence of autumn in a candle
The most delicious fall scented candle, my partner and I are both obsessed with this. The apples, rosemary, mulled spices, and bourbon all come together seamlessly.
This candle smells like the transition from fall to winter. I'm obsessed.
New favorite autumn/apple candle
This scent blew my husband and i away! It’s a unique apple blend. I even love just walking by it when it’s not lit.
Favorite scent thus far
I have bought every single scent released so far and this one is by far my favorite. The throw is amazing and it’s such a cozy scent. Have stocked up to hold me over for a bit. Hope it comes back again next year!
Cozy Main Character Vibes
I really love this company and their products, and though I was skeptical about Girl in a Sweater, I'm finding it puts me in a super romantic, main-character mode as I combat my S.A.D. with fall prepping me for winter. The apple notes inspire me to get cracking on some baking projects, and I love having it burning as I answer email and work from home during the week.
