"Smells like History" candle, with notes of actually EMPHASIZING WOMEN'S CONTRIBUTIONS to society.
Plum, spruce, grapefruit, mandarin, cinnamon, and clove notes intertwine to form an intoxicating fragrance that fills a room.
According to a study by the National Women's History Museum in 2017 titled "Where are the Women", women are vastly underrepresented in history books:
"Today’s publishers create dynamic publications with compelling illustrations, charts, and an emphasis on stories. But they don’t present a complete picture of US history. All history projects require choices. Including a person or event excludes another. Women often don’t make the cut. Since the 1960s, academic studies have found that women and minorities are vastly underrepresented in US history textbooks. The most recent study, published in 2016, found that women continue to make up a small percentage of figures in US history textbooks, including illustrations and sidebars."
The "Smells Like History" candle was inspired by imagining a telling of history that emphasizes women's contributions.
