That's My Jam - Capri Blue Aloha Orchid Candle

In the book the Happiness Project, author Gretchen Rubin discusses how she walked into a party and was drawn to the scent of the candle. She immediately found out what the candle was and bought it for her office because the smell made her happy. In the book she writes:

Though I sometimes mocked the scented-candle pushing brand of happiness building, I discovered that there is something nice about working in an office with a candle burning. It’s like seeing snow falling outside the window or having a dog snoozing on the carpet beside you. It’s a kind of silent presence in the room and very pleasant

I love the store Anthropologie and often go there to clear my mind and de-stress because the environment is calming and inspiring for me. A few years ago when I went in there was a candle burning that I was drawn to and bought immediately. It was a Capri Blue candle in the Aloha Orchid scent. Since then, I always have one on hand and burn it frequently because it is simply a scent that makes me happy. Anthropologie sells four versions of it as seen below (they are all the same scent, just different containers).

Because I (and Bennett) love this scent so much, I decided to 'bless' our new house with it. I threw one of Aloha Orchid candles I had in my purse when we went to the closing.  I pulled it out first thing when we walked into the house to burn. The scent filled the house and it immediately felt like home.
