V Avenue Shoe Repair Has Fatwood

It may sound like something out of a teen gross-out flick, but it’s actually the name of a lovely new scented candle from the Swedish label V Avenue Shoe Repair. A kind of pine, fatwood emits a fragrance that designers Lee Cotter and Astrid Olsson associate with Nordic summers spent, they say, “chopping wood and throwing logs in the fireplace.” The effect of Fatwood, made in the French scent region of Grasse, is intended to be more calming than arousing. So as you can see, not lascivious at all, and how dare you even go there.

80 euros at V Avenue Shoe Repair stores and online
