smells over feels

After the instant evaporation of their student loan balances, Abby and Taylor’s biggest dream was a clean-burning candle that didn’t cost half their weekly grocery bill. So at night, after day jobs and happy hours, they began crafting hand-poured candles with the exact scents they wished would fill their spaces. Some of their creations smelled like lustful longings, passionate revenge, or indulgence—all feelings tied to personal memories and experiences. With each new experiment, the candles began to outnumber people in their apartment six to one.

And so WAX BBY was born.
