Behind the Scent: Steve Rogers


Hey again folx -

Meredith here again to talk to you a little bit about my all-time best seller, Steve Rogers. When I first started making candles I was having a bit of a love affair with the Avengers movies and had originally planned to make candles for all my favorite super heroes. Scent inspiration is a fickle muse, however, and I only wound up sticking with a couple. But thus, Steve Rogers was born.

For the uninitiated, Steve Rogers is Captain America. In recent years, he’s been portrayed by Perfect Human Specimen Chris Evans, and is generally just an ‘aw, shucks’ wholesome American hero that punches Nazis and fights for justice.

The man, the smell, the legend


The candle is inspired by the essence of Americana - it’s the clean and fresh scent of newly washed linen drying on a line and a slight wafting smell of an apple cinnamon pie cooling on the windowsill nearby. That combination sounds about as counter intuitive as Captain America turning out to be a member of Hydra, but fortunately, one of those things turned out to be an amazing idea (SPOILERS: It was mine).

Since we haven’t invented smellable emails yet, you’re gonna have to take my word for it or pick one up for yourself. Trust me, it’s the easiest way to get Captain America in your bedroom.


All the love,
