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

The perfect apple candle
"Autumnal" candle scents are my favorite year-round, but I typically gravitate towards woody /spicy / smoky. A lot of apple-forward candles are a little too one-note, overly sweet, or artificial and air freshener-y if you know what I mean. NOT this! GIAS truly makes your house smell like you have a mulled cider or wassail on your stovetop in the middle of fall. I think the eucalyptus, pine and rosemary notes are doing some great work to keep it from being too sweet or heavy, and the apple is super fresh and natural. It's wonderful for nighttime but the crispness makes it really comforting and pleasant for day too. As with most of the TNS candles I've tried, the throw on this is nuts. It fills up a room in minutes. Definitely my favorite apple-centric candle. It pairs REALLY well with Library in a Forest, too!
The realistic notes of apples in this candle are unmatched! I was stunned by how much it actually smelled like mulled apple cider. An excellent candle for the fall and holiday seasons.
This candle is SO good we had to buy another in a bigger size
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.
