What are the strongest smelling candles
Candles with the most potent smells. Boy Smells's Kush candles are perpetual best-sellers. Still, this Cashmere iteration, which employs tulip, cashmere wood, and powdery musk, is a softer, slightly less earthy option for those who might not want the stank (in a good way) intensity of the cannabis flower note. This decorative pick is hard to ignore, in large part because it's topped with amber stones and fossilized tree resin for a dynamic, light-reflecting effect. You're sure to find one that will appeal with three scents to choose from, including Neroli Sweetgrass, Sicilian Rose Matcha, and Palo Santo Rosewood. Its vibrant ceramic vessel jar allows for a 75-hour burn time, and you can repurpose the stones as décor after the candle is done. This adorable candle smells good, with scents like pine and vanilla or jasmine and white tea, but its faux hand-poured cactus or poppy design will surely spark a conversation with your guests. Make it the centerpiece of your dinner table, or put it on the bathroom counter for a great finishing touch. Candles that have a long-lasting smell. 1. Scent: First, and probably most importantly, you want to look for a surprise candle scent that you not only like, but one that won't irritate you if burned for an extended period. This is essential for those with allergies who may be sensitive to certain fragrances. Options with natural essential oils may be less aggravating, and beeswax candles, mainly free of toxins, can reduce chemical reactions. Beeswax candles are popular as they burn slower than other wax blends. Though some can be unscented, the Lemon Siracusa Market Candle has notes of lemon, lime, green olives, lemon zest, citrus yuzu, and warm coriander, creating a unique scent unlike others out there. Scented candles, and soy-scented ones, are becoming increasingly popular. Scented candles allow you to fill your home with a delightful scent of your choosing, and soy candles have several benefits over other types of candles. Soy wax candles can last up to twice as long as paraffin wax candles as they have a lower melting point. In this guide, we are reviewing 5 of the best-scented soy wax candles available on Amazon for you to purchase.
Lana Del Rey and the Language of the Violent Image
This month has been a slew of sexual assault cases, with Eminem threatening Iggy Azalea and now a mysterious film project starring Lana Del Rey being brutally raped. The project was directed by notoriously nasty Eli Roth and stars both Lana Del Rey and clips of old videos from Marilyn Manson - who was originally accused of directing the film himself! The bizarre video shows these Manson videos mixed a disturbing scene of Roth physically attacking and sexually assaulting Del Rey. Manson's team has since confirmed that Manson wasn't involved and that it was "likely a fan tinkering with his music video scenes." Like anything taken out of context, it is hard to judge the message of Eli Roth's film based on these few clips (which have since been removed from the internet) but based on his previous work, this project will be inching towards the 'Hollywood torture porn' genre as Jessica Hopper of Pitchfork puts it. Lana Del Rey's entire persona is based off of playing on the traditional American idea of women - being glamorous, vulnerable, and meek. Her music and art so clearly ties back to and plays with all of these ideals (If you haven't seen her video for National Anthem, check it out now) so to have her be raped on film - evening if she was acting - is especially disturbing. Roth is just another man portraying the sexual abuse of women through a man's eyes. Why he chose to use a leading symbol of traditional femininity is something I think the entire music community is waiting for. So far, Roth and Del Rey haven't commented on the situation.
