The Brilliance!


We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.

Malin+Goetz candles!

I was never too into candles…no particular reason, just never really got into it. But, as I’ve stated before, I am a bit of a sucker for my favorite brands, and Malin+Goetz is certainly a favorite of mine. So I got up-sold a $40+ dollar M+G candle when I was last at my local spot Lamb on Cherry St. - only spot in GR to get M+G skin care stuff. Weird, cause I rarely fall for the old ‘oh, you should try this stuff from them as well’ pitch. I’m glad I did… I grabbed the cannabis flavored/scented one - good choice. Despite the naming, it doesn’t smell like a all-ages Styles P concert. It’s actually has a super rich but still soft smell to it…quite nice. Or as they say: ‘Top notes of Figs and Pepper; middle notes of Orange and Lemon; base notes of Sandlewood and Patchouli.’ It complements the aesthetic of my loft quite well. Was that last part corny?? Anyway, I’m a fan.
