Paddywax Launches Candles Inspired by Thoreau, Austen, Whitman, Poe, and Dickens

Henry Thoreau Smells Surprisingly Fresh

I grew up in the country but have lived in cities throughout my adult life. And if there's one thing that I miss most around this time of year, it's the crisp scents of autumn: pine needles, fallen leaves turning toward decay, freshly chopped firewood. Enter Henry Thoreau. No, not the writer per se, but a soy wax candle inspired by his work. It's one of Paddywax's library collection ($8 for travel tin), which also pays tribute to Whitman, Austen, Poe, and Dickens. Thoreau's version is fresh and forest-like, with a thread of juniper that smells very close to the real thing. While a candle won't substitute for a Walden-style sojourn, it's one way to feel a little closer to home — and a well-priced little gift for bibliophiles, too.
