Wax On

W’s beauty director is captivated by the scents of Aedes de Venustas’s signature line.

Aedes de Venustas sells the coolest fragrance brands from around the world, and the New York boutique’s new signature line of candles is just as intriguing. Indica captures the essence of ganja—in the very best way; Mel Mellis tempers sweet honey with brisk rosemary. My favorite is the pine-and-incense-laden Phoenicis, which smells like a bonfire, my ongoing olfactory obsession.
