Part of their new Chromesthesia series (made up of three scents), Ambrosia candle by Boy Smells entices with its distinct but subtle fragrance. The candle offers notes of mandarin peel, rosemary, galbanum, iris, hinkoki and vanilla—all the while avoiding being too zesty or citrusy. Made from a blend of food-grade coconut and beeswax, this candle offers 50+ hours of burn time. Like the others in the Chromesthesia line, the Ambrosia candle has been carefully designed and packaged according to its fragrance; the wax, vessel and box are all a sublime shade of lime.
