(pictured above) glasses of Manishevitz Wine
My roommate tells my story as one of incredulity: "Can you believe what we let ourselves drink when we were so young and foolish?" Thank God we’re older and wiser now." But I look back on those days as blessed days. Because no matter how young I was, on that day in June, 2004, I learned that I fucking love Manischewitz.
When you first start smelling the Manishevtz candle, think big to small. Are there fruits? Think of broad categories first, when smelling the candle, think-red fruits, blue fruits, or black fruit?. Getting too specific or looking for one particular note can lead to frustration. Broadly, you can divide the scent of our Manishevitz candle into these primary categories:
Top Notes: are grape-derivative and include fruits, herbs, and floral notes.
Heart Notes come from winemaking practices. The most common aromas are yeast-derivative in almonds.
Base Notes: roasted nuts, vanilla, autumn leaves, and Cedar.
***Notes are the 3 different smell variations of a candle. Top is the initial smell of opening and burning. Heart/Middle is the smell that starts approximately 10 minutes after burn time. Base is the smell that fills the area once the candle has been extinguished.
