Smell is a crucial part of memory, and 'Oh Comadre' is an organic scented candle company that hopes to stimulate the common cultural memories of those with Latino heritage. The company offers candles with scents inspired by Latin culture, from sweet scents to more subtle aromas, with some scents that one wouldn't expect.
Some of the scents Oh Comadre offers, though certainly inspired by Latino culture, are relatively similar to typical candles. Those include 'Lucha Libre Teakwood', a bold mix of amber, musk, and sandalwood, and 'Manzanita Festiva', an apple and strawberry scent. Others are less expected though: for example, Oh Comadre offers 'Vicky's Vapo Candle', a eucalyptus, tea tree, and peppermint scent fashioned after the famously fragrant cough relief ointment.
