Meanwhile, the Aircraft vase, a contemporary white ceramic vessel, looks more like an objet d’art than the typical home fragrance container.
A five-pack of sticks retails for $9.99 in True Vanilla, Crisp Apple, French Linen, Forest Berries, Sunrise Citrus, Summer Rain, Sheer Lavender, Water Clover, White Petals, Night Orchid, Amber Spice and Deep Wood online.
