You may have noticed that we're hardly perpetual rays of sunshine around here, but even so, we seem to spend a lot of our time enthusing about one gewgaw or another. Doubtblush exists to make it clear that we do not, in fact, like everything.
Raise your hand if you love commuting. Now keep it raised if you love commuting so much that you would like your house to smell like a car. Now lower it back to the mouse and keyboard so you can buy the New Car Candle from Hotwicks ($6). Readers, this is actually the less scary ownership scenario we came up with for this item. The other one? Well, a lot of what makes that carcinogenic new vehicle whiff so special is that you're actually in the shiny vehicle while you're smelling it. So if your roadster is getting old, bring the farfegneugen back by rescenting it with an open flame as you drive! (Thrillseekers should look at the rest of the available Hotwicks fragrances. Eat your heart out, Luca Turin.)
