Catching a whiff of a certain smell has the potential to take people across time and space, as scent and memory are intrinsically linked—and scented candle smells commonly provide these comforting experiences. While many candles are created to suit specific holidays, seasons or atmospheres, this uncertain period has people feeling nostalgic for experiences that they used to take for granted, such as visiting a summer festival or visiting a movie theater.
Knowing that people are craving comfort and a taste of their life just a few months ago, Earl of East created a series of scented candles inspired by The Festival, The Cinema and The Local, which shares "scents of normality."
