New Year's Resolutions are damn near upon us, and that means taking a look at the next year and deciding what changes are in store for yourself. But whether a tradition belongs to the New Year or summer or somewhere in-between, one often-overlooked ingredient — for old and new rituals alike — is the smell. We Took to the Woods is all over that.
In the South Carolina-based brand’s own words, “We want to involve all the senses that each season awakens, while at the same time embracing the change that comes with the turning of time.” The simple, rich scents of WTTTW’s hand-poured, 100% soy wax candles are as easy on the nose as they are hard to forget (and they last 40+ hours each). Our staff favorite is Whiskey River, a subtle fusion of tobacco and amber, bringing a rustic warmth to your living space. So, whether you’re tying off a New Year’s Eve bash with friends, need a gift for Grandpa that pairs well with his trusty leather armchair by the fire, or you’re reading away a rainy Sunday curled up in bed, give WTTTW’s candles a light.
