The smell of hot metal, leather, and wood blend together as you step aboard. The background of the street brings a cacophony of sounds from the roads, sidewalks, and riverfront, quietly silenced in the background of your mind as you take your seat.
The historical significance begins to set in as you prepare to enjoy the experience of the ride you're about to embark on. With a gentle rock, you're on your way, and before long, the light squealing of the brakes announces your next destination. It's a streetcar ride in New Orleans.
Jump into a New Orleans streetcar with our special candle, "A Streetcar Ride." This candle brings you the cool smells of a real streetcar like hot metal, leather seats, and old wood. It's like you're really there, listening to the city sounds, and getting ready for an exciting trip. When you light this candle, it's like you're starting a fun journey, and the soft sound of the candle is like the streetcar's brakes.

ABOUT PARISH SCENTS
My name is Gienine, and I am the owner of Parish Scents Co., a New Orleans candle company. I was born and raised in New Orleans, LA and my family has deep roots in the city dating back 150+ years.
I have always enjoyed candles, and have probably purchased hundreds of them over the years. And as I've gone through various stages of preferences, I have gradually gravitated towards wanting to burn candles that have meaning - candles that remind me of the people, places, and things that I care about. I wanted a candle that - when it burns - brings my fondest memories to the forefront. Candles that make me smile.
That's when Parish Scents was created, and I have spent hundreds of days carefully testing and crafting my line of New Orleans scented candles to recreate the scents of New Orleans - the place where I was born, raised, and am deeply connected with in every possible way.
For all those who have created fond memories in this distinctly unique city, for those who call it home, or for anybody who simply enjoys the spirit of New Orleans, these candles were designed specifically for you and me.
