By Ned Hepburn

News is spreading like candlefire wildfire that there is now a Bushwick-scented candle on sale for $81 that allegedly smells like wood, artist lofts, paint thinner, incense, booze, and dust. Well, we at TONY have gone one step further and made a list of the scents we'd mix together to create candles for 8 other NYC neighborhoods. Ain't we good to you?
