The Ultimate ’90s Nostalgia Candles
Marc Gordon - April 4, 2020


By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!

And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!

Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!

And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

Nostalgia can be experienced in many different forms. One of which is through smell. For everyone, that smell that brings you back in time is surely different too…

Perhaps nostalgia for you is the smell of an old textbook or maybe even the first perfume you had. 

Well, if you’re looking to throw it back to the good old days of high school, then perhaps Otherland’s Carefree 90s candle collection is just what you need. It’s the ultimate way to experience nostalgia without having to bathe yourself in some tacky mist that would surely throw others off and has arrived right in time for the ‘90s nostalgia craze. 

The nostalgic line offers three scents including Glosspop, turning your favorite Smackers lip balm into a scent, Blue Jean Baby, taking you back to those high waisted, washed denim, and Dreamlight, offering you the ultimate high school girl mixtape with a super juicy tangerine twist.

Even just the names themselves are already taking us back in time…
