Enriched Geranium

by Nora Jay

“With a funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected scent, this candle is made with geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette seed to put us in mind of fantasy, seduction, and a sophisticated warmth.”
—Goop advertisement for “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle

Geranium and bergamot,
Sweet, sexy notes! And—hush:
Within the cedar, is there not
A little tender thrush…?
