Smells Like Heaven…Via NYC.
Subway platforms and the East River aside, New York’s got some pretty incredible smells wafting around its boroughs. Peonies at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. Freshly cut grass in Central Park’s Sheep Meadow. Anything that comes out of the kitchen at Carbone. Wouldn’t it be great if you could bottle those iconic New York smells and recreate them in your very own home? As you’ve probably already guessed, we’re writing this post because you can, with a Katz’s Deli Chocolate Egg Cream Candle ($25.00) by Joya.
A New York institution in its own right, Katz’s is best known for its pastrami—and the infamous orgasm scene from “When Harry Met Sally.” But it also makes a helluva Chocolate Egg Cream. For all you non-New Yorkers out there, an Egg Cream is an old school diner staple that’s kind of like a milkshake, but it’s made with milk, seltzer and chocolate (or vanilla) syrup. And no, there aren’t any eggs in it. Or any cream. So this hand-poured, made-in-New-York candle makes your home smell just like a delicious New York daydream, with the scent of rich chocolate and seltzer. Light one just before you have Robert DeNiro over for dinner. We’re sure he would approve.
