Kacey Musgraves has launched a new Deeper Well candle with Boy Smells, following her collaboration with the company following her Slow Burn candle drop in 2020.  She says the candle is “an earthy ode to your inner world. Elements like oak moss, mushroom, saffron, beet root, lavender, clary sage, and raspberry come together to make your space smell like the bottom of a forest in the clouds. It’s a grounded, comforting smell (like a hug from someone you’ve missed) but a bit sweet, airy and fresh (like they just came in from the rain.) The smell of wet stone but also a breeze carrying a subtle scent of dried flowers. Balanced somewhere between feminine and masculine and completely at peace.”
