Kenyon-Scented Candles: Limited Edition

Kenyon, widely-renowned for its site-specific scents, has finally broken into the candle industry. The smells you’ve grown to know, recognize, and even love are finally available for purchase. Just don’t light them or even let your CA know you have them, or you’ll get one of them big fat write ups. For the rebellious ones within these hallowed halls, we bring you a taste (or should I say, a sniff) of what’s to come.

The candle store is an amazing place. Like, you can have this stick of wax that smells like Butterflies Frolicking Through A Misty Summer Day or Your Grandmother’s Apple Pie Mixed With Subtle Hints Her Perfume or other just really outstanding and specific scents. Not that I have candles in my dorm (and neither should you) but if I did have candles in my dorm, I’d be sick of all these frankly cliché and embarrassing scents. You know what we need? Kenyon scents. Because, as well all know, Kenyon smells great. All the time.
