An homage to the Cabbage Patch Doll.
An iconic staple of the 80s, every child had the dream of owning one and every parent had the nightmare of trying to find one. (Buying a Cabbage Patch Doll in the Christmas of 1983 – it was every man for himself.)
Though they weren’t particularly cute (some were down right ugly), they were all unique in their own way (each came with a birth certificate and adoption forms!).
One thing that old school Cabbage Patch Doll owners would remember however, is their classic scent – a cross between a light powdery talc and a hard plastic material – it was the closest the doll-makers were going to get to an actual newborn baby smell, and as children, we loved it!
We replicated that mysterious nostalgic scent as close as possible: a light mixture of soft baby powder with hints of lilac and sweet honey, layered with notes of vanilla bean and cherry wood, bringing you back to the day you adopted your very own one-of-a-kind Cabbage Patch Doll, yarn hair and all.

It’s your birthday! We’re gonna party like it’s ya birthday!
And who doesn’t love a good old fashioned birthday party, complete with decorations, presents, and more importantly, the birthday cake! Do you remember the days when it was all about the cake? Those lovely nostalgic memories of biting into that first piece!
Regardless of how old you are, everybody wants a slice of that delectable dessert once the candles are blown out. It’s the perfect blend of moist white cake and delicious sweet butter cream vanilla frosting. If you close your eyes you can almost taste the sprinkles!
It’s just like the cake your mom made for you every year growing up. The kind baked in that silver tin and then slathered with that store-bought icing. Only this time you don’t have to age another year to enjoy it.
Happy Birthday. Every day.

Nothing smells like childhood again like breaking open a fresh box of colorful crayons. There’s just something about those thin colored sticks of wax, paper tightly wound around them, that nostalgically brings us back to being a kid and laying on the living room carpet, feverishly coloring away in a coloring book. A scent so distinct, one whiff and instantly takes you back.
Light this candle and open up a box with us.

Whether you had one that scared you as a kid or were just terrified by a relative’s whenever you visited, having to enter an unfinished basement (the scary creepy kind) was always a mental battle lost.
Cool yet humid, damp yet dry, our Creepy Basement brings you back to that exact moment of slowly walking down those dark wooden stairs, fear tightening in your chest and your mind playing tricks on you as you quickly ran to retrieve whatever had fallen down there.
The smell of a dank and musty crawl space, odorous of wet rock and mildew, will forever be imbedded in the nostalgia of your brain, so why not embrace it? Notes include evergreen cedar, icy tea tree, eucalyptus, spiced musk, and hints of green accord. It’s a creepy fragrance to go with a creepy memory.
I’ll give you a dollar if you go down first.

Paperback. Tomorrow’s generation won’t even know what a paperback is. Seriously. With inventions like Kindles, iPads, Tablets, and Smartphones, the idea of opening a bound book with hundreds of pages seems archaic.
But no, we haven’t forgotten you, Paperback. We haven’t forgotten you at all. We still care.
This isn’t an ordinary paperback, or some new edition like the kind you buy from Barnes & Noble. We wanted to create the scent that you get from an old, torn, stuffy book, something you would get from the library.
Yellowing pages, bent corners, creased covers, these are the paperbacks of yesteryear, and despite its appearance, the moment you flipped it open and inhaled that stale musty paper, it was like pure literary magic. For all you book-lovers out there – we bet you still smell and breathe in each book you crack open to read, ritually.
Rich Himalayan bamboo blended with a vanilla-hinted cedarwood, topped off with notes of driftwood and leather, it’s that calming nostalgia that only true old book enthusiasts could understand.
And for all you Tech people out there, wait 5 years. We’re certain your Kindles will never give off the same smell as our beloved old paperbacks.

If you’re a child born of the 80s, as we are, there was always a Saturday morning ritual that you followed.
You got up around 7 or 8am (didn’t matter that it wasn’t a school day), and turned on the TV for your favorite cartoons. Maybe it was The Smurfs or Rainbow Brite, or maybe Gummi Bears was your thing, whichever your preference or channel, one thing remained the same: breakfast.
You got out your bowl and your favorite box of sugary fruity cereal and ate it in front of the television while reading the back of the box endlessly, as if new information magically sprouted there from the last time you read it. This would go on every Saturday way until your teenage years.
Reminiscent of those days, we created Saturday Morning Cartoons, our take on that Saturday morning cereal ritual. Just like those classic fruit loops you loved as a kid, the scent has notes of lemon rinds, lime, and grapefruit, blended wonderfully with lily, verbena, and vanilla sugar, with just a hint of berry.
Who remembers waiting for Saved by the Bell to come on after your 3 hour cartoon block was over? Those were the days…
