Description

In the spirit of Honest Abe, we need to level with you about a few things.

- We don’t actually know what Abraham Lincoln smelled like. We sort of assume that everyone in 19th Century America smelled like stale wool, coal smoke, and armpits, but we didn’t want the candle to smell like that. So instead, it smells how we imagine a frontier log cabin did: seasoned logs, woodsmoke, and a little mustiness.

- You could probably save a lot of money by making your own Lincoln-scented candle at home. Because, believe it or not, wax is pretty cheap. You probably CAN afford that wax house you’ve been dreaming about.

- When we say our candles are a “soy wax blend,” people probably assume we’re blending soy wax with gold dust, or powdered diamonds. But we’re just blending it with other kinds of wax. (Not ear wax.)

- Candlemaking is hot work, and there is a 50/50 chance that when we poured this candle we weren’t wearing pants.

- We also wanted to be honest with you that we're including the phrase History Buff in this description for search optimization purposes. Ditto with the phrases Civil War, Presidential Gift, and Gift for Dad. Sorry, that's just the kind of algorithm-dominated world we live in. Someone as efficient and elegant with words as Lincoln would have hated it.
