How Scent-imental

This limited-edition Give Kindness candle ($17) was created by The Candle Lab and benefits Besa, a Columbus nonprofit that coordinates communitywide service projects. The scent is a “mix of warm almond, sweetened with notes of basmati rice and rich leather.” Sales support Besa's critical-need projects.
