Ah, the ’90s—a decade of double denim, AIM messages, sticky lip gloss, and hitmaker boy bands and lady teams that we nonetheless have on repeat (however this time on our smartphones as a substitute of our transportable CD gamers). Our nostalgia for the ’90s is actual, and so is Otherland’s, because it seems. The stylish candle firm just lately got here out with their new Carefree 90s assortment, which homes three candles devoted to among the finest a long time. The three candles are all nostalgia-packed in their very own methods, however there was one particularly that stood out to us: the Blue Jean Child candle.
Even the identify of the candle is majorly nostalgic. First off, the phrase “blue jean child” is what begins Elton John’s traditional ’70s hit “Tiny Dancer.” Then, as destiny would have it, Elton John and our ’90s queen Britney Spears remixed the tune final summer season, over 50 years after the tune’s unique launch. The universe works in mysterious methods.
And now that we’ve sufficiently geeked out over the identify, let’s speak concerning the candle itself. The restricted version candle smells, just like the identify would indicate, like denims (although the time period the model makes use of is “washed denim”). However there are additionally notes of mimosa flower and white musk to spherical out the scent. Plus, the sunshine and ethereal packaging is giving contemporary laundry, contemporary flowers, and light-weight wash denims—an ideal springtime vibe.
That’s not the one candle within the assortment, although. In funky purple, pink, and blue packaging, Dreamlight is floral and citrusy, whereas the beautiful pink Glosspop is good and candy-scented.
And now that reminiscences of portray our nails with Bon Bons nail polish, buying at Restricted Too, and watching “The Powerpuff Ladies” are swirling round in our thoughts, we by some means have the entire Carefree 90s assortment sitting in our cart…
