When I’m homesick, the first thing I miss are the familiar fragrances of a homecooked meal, a big warm dog begging for belly rubs while on my lap, and the surrounding natural habitat where I frolick. While it’s easier to replicate my recipes abroad and being approached by friendly dogs on the street asking to be pet, nothing can come close to the particular perfume of California (also knows how to party) – where giant sequoias intermingle with the Pacific Ocean breeze in the northern coastal towns.
Recently, travel has become a priority so I picked this Meroë Home candle to remind me of The Golden State and it has been a godsend. It is a familiar and comforting scent of an invigorating time spent standing between the botanical giants along Humboldt’s Redwood coast with family, friends and the sun warming my soul. If you’ve at least visited northern California once and longed to return, you will be reminiscent of the unique charm that allures us all when this candle is aglow. Even if you haven’t been to the land of milk and honey, one whiff of this candle might make you long to visit and dare I say, hug a tree.
