You won’t want to burn this in a hurry. Kacey Musgraves has unveiled an exclusive candle in partnership with boutique scented candle company, Boy Smells. It’s aptly called “Slow Burn,” named after the song of the same name off her 2018 album, Golden Hour.
According to the online description, the scent is “glowing and dark,” containing notes of incense, black pepper, elemi, guaiac, raspberry, tonka, amber and smoked papyrus. ”A little dank, a little crisp…” the description reads. “Commanding but not in a hurry, like the last sips of a Negroni at the bar down the street…”
Musgraves posted the news to her Instagram page, with an image of the rose gold candle. “This was really a fun creative challenge for me and I’m a big fan of @boy__smells – a queer brand with Texas roots.”

** SOLD OUT • RESTOCKING ASAP ** . . . . . I brought my song slow burn to life in the form of a smell. The scentiment is exactly what the song sounds like. It’s a little dank. A little crisp. Androgynous. Floaty. Earthy. Grounded. It’s the smell of a fire faintly drifting on the breeze as you walk to your favorite bar down the street and cherish slow sips of your favorite wine. Briefly thinking about strangers on the other side of the globe in Beijing rushing into work but you’re right here, admiring the fading colors of the disappearing sunset and enjoying exactly where you are in all senses. . . . . . This was really a fun creative challenge for me and I’m a big fan of @boy__smells – a queer brand with Texas roots. Hope you love what we created. Burn in a hurry.
It’s Musgraves’ first brand partnership and the collab makes total sense. Apart from the more obvious Texas ties (often referenced in her music), according to Vogue, Musgraves was a big fan of the Kush scent from Boy Smells prior to the partnership.
Unfortunately for fans, this one has been a doozy. It is now sold out but will be restocked soon, according to Musgraves’ Instagram post. It’s listed on her merch website for $37.99 USD. Orders placed before stock ran out are expected to ship after Feb. 17.
