Meet  Anecdote candles which are soo much more than fragrant flambeaus; they’re also conversation pieces. Emblazed with quotes such as the popular ADULTING Candle/ “Smells like early nights and steady paychecks,” or our favorite, I’M SPEAKING/ “Smells like male fragility and rude interruptions” (someone send one to Kamala Harris!) they make a great gift.

The company sent us one to try and we’re happy to report that it smells delightfully fresh and subtly scented. At Anecdote, they take candles seriously by hand-pouring using natural ingredients with no additives, dyes, or preservatives, a coconut-soy wax blend, cotton core wicks, and premium phthalate-free fragrance oils that create a clean burn and powerful scent.












The ‘I’m Speaking’ candle which the company says smells like ‘Citrus & Angelica – Inspired by the subtle strength of femininity’, gives back too, donating 15% of this candle’s net sales to She Should Run, a nonpartisan nonprofit working to dramatically increase the number of women considering a run for public office.


Perfect for all your girlfriends. $24.
