If you threw open your window right now and took a deep breath, would you only smell cold? (Yes. It's a smell. Don't contradict us on this.) Then address both the aroma and the temperature with a Lilac Dandelion candle from Skeem! ($22) We kept taking the lid off and sniffing ours before we even got it home, and we have to say, the fragrance is wonderful. The predominant note is lilac, but you really can smell dandelion stems underneath. Once we set the thing on fire (they burn for a solid ninety hours) the scent was light and left the room smelling fresher, and there were no drips whatsoever. Skeem is against unnecessary packaging, and we applaud them for that: the beautifully patterned glass jar that the candle comes in is meant to be kept and reused as a tumbler.
Full disclosure: Outblush received a free sample of this product, but we thought their stuff was neat even before that happened.
