Studies have shown that our sense of smell is deeply intertwined with our narrative memory, explaining why a single whiff of a familiar aroma can conjure vivid recollections of scenes from the past. Among the most memorable scents are those of the holiday season—cinnamon, cardamom, and peppermint—which remind us of the treats that are most oft enjoyed in the spirit of winter. When we caught wind (literally) of the Santa’s Pole candy-cane soy candle from A Scent of Scandal, we were instantly transported to the red-and-white striped decorations of Christmas Tree Lane, evoked through an irresistible olfactory synthesis of peppermint and vanilla. This soy candle boasts more than just a cruelty-free composition—you’ll want to keep one lit in every room year-round for of its fantastic fragrance. Snag one from the VegNews Store today—they’re truly heaven scent.
