Watching a movie at home these days doesn't come with quite the same potpourri of aromas you'd get from going out to a movie theater, such as popcorn butter, recirculated air and the wrinkly hot dogs at the concession stand. A London candle shop called Earl of East wants to bring these aromas back into your life. They've created a new line of three candles called “Scents of Normality.”
