'Tis the season to light some candles around your home, and the latest cult-favorite to hit shelves is a collaboration between P.F. Candle Co. and Madewell.


Originally launched in 2016 as part of Madewell's 24 Days of Denim, the Overalls candle combines cedar, petitgrain, sandalwood, and musk, creating a scent that recalls the notion of wearing your favorite pair of Madewell jeans on a walk through the woods.

The candle is made from sustainably sourced soy and scented with eco-friendly synthetic fragrances — both of which are signature materials used by P.F. Candle Co., founded by husband-wife duo Kristen Pumphrey and Thomas Neuberger.

Overalls has just come back online — but isn't quite ready to ship. Madewell's website lists it as "backordered," but don't be too discouraged — the estimated ship date is November 11, which isn't so far away. The 7.5 oz. candle is also fairly reasonably priced, setting you back just $20.
