It’s the middle of summer and we are seeing 100+ degree days in Albuquerque. It makes us long for beautiful beaches and clear blue oceans.
And you know what comes to mind when we imagine beautiful beaches and clear blue oceans?
Sure, it’s been nearly 14 years since the show debuted, and sure there are plenty of better, much happier associations to have when it comes to paradisiacal coastlines, but we know what we’re about here at Cowboy & Cricket. And if a lonely beach and the sound of waves gently lapping the shore also makes you think of Oceanic Airlines Flight 815, then you already know what we know: We have to go back!
This month’s scent is our ode to Lost, to the amazingly ill-conceived Dharma Initiative, and to the Hatch. We imagine that when Locke, Jack, and the rest of the crew first blew the top off the Hatch, they were greeting by a soothing and amorphous scent, blending fresh green mandarin, aromatic cannabis, exotic spices, cassia, and patchouli mixed with the floral air of hibiscus, violet, and peony with just a hint of sweet coconut. It was a lot for them to take in while also dealing with Hurley freaking out about the Numbers in the background.
So are we tempting fate by naming one of our candles after the infamous un/lucky Numbers? Maybe. But we’re pretty sure we don’t believe in destiny - or maybe we do and we just don’t know it yet.
