FRAGRANCE NOTES: Coconut, bamboo, an ocean breeze, and sweet mangos.
INSPIRATION: For the past few years, every December when the snow starts to fall, I would get the same phone call from my prima Valerie who lives in Denver.
“Cousin! I need mangos, coconuts, an ocean breeze . . . I need you to make me a tropical vacation candle!”
It’s true what they say about your cousins, they are your first best friends. We’ve gone through a lot together --- boyfriends, husbands, divorces, children, grandchildren, cancer, grandparents, and parents dying, and through it all, I’ve always known I can count on them for anything and everything.
