You may have tried a Spiced Chai Latté, but have you ever tasted a Spiced Chai Cocktail?
We love all things Spiced Chai, so we’re kicking our drinks and fragrance series up a notch for this fall fragrance. We asked the Anchorage (Greenville, SC) to burn our Spiced Chai Candle and create a craft cocktail based on the warm & cozy notes of this seasonal favorite. Then, we also asked our perfumers to create a chai latté recipe to complement the fragrance. Our sweater-weather-loving hearts can’t get enough of these delicious drinks!
