#TGIF! IF you’d ask us what Bridgehampton smells like, we’d likely say a cross between horse and Panera bread. This is why it’s a good thing that Brittany Torres is in the scented candle business, not us. Torres, who seeks to capture the aromas of Hamptons villages with her Hamptons Handpoured soy candles, says it’s more like lime, arugula and honeysuckle. (We totally get the arugula.) Torres will be selling her candles at the Williams Sonoma in Bridgehampton Commons this Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and if you buy the Bridge candle, pictured above, 40% of the proceeds go to the Samual Waxman Cancer Research Foundation.

Goodbye, Muffins. Hello, Juice

As expected, Mary’s Marvelous is leaving Amagansett after 15 years. “It is with sadness and regret that I say goodbye,” says owner Mary Schoenlein, who will continue to operate her (larger) East Hampton store. Meanwhile, Organic Krush, which never met a cold-pressed juice or grass-fed steak it didn’t like, will be taking over the Main Street space.

Also on the move is Churchill Wine & Spirits, owned by David Churchill (here’s a photo of him), which left its East Hampton location this month to take over the former DePetris Liquor Store in Bridgehampton. In other wine news, Wainscott Main, led by Chimene Macnaughton, who is as effervescent as Vinho Verde on a summer afternoon, will be launching an e-shop July 1. “Find the same personalized shopping experience of our bricks and mortar online,” the shop says.
