·7 min read
In our most played-out cold weather fantasies, we spend crisp evenings luxuriating beneath cashmere throw blankets while the embers inside our home's vast hearth emit an oh-so-soft and smoky glow. Back in our cramped-apartment realities, we're tangled up in a Snuggie trying to fix a digitized fire that keeps lagging from the crappy WiFi connection. Since getting elbow-deep in mortar for bricklaying our way to peak seasonal bliss isn't the brightest idea, we elected the next best easiest thing: buying a fireplace-scented winter candle.
