LANAI coconut, pink peppercorn, orange blossom, coal, and clove

Ancient volcanic sands extend right to the edge of sweet tropic foliage in this scent, reminding us of the lush cycle of life, death, and renewal. Return to the island.

GARDENER tomato, petitgrain, white tea, and honeysuckle

Citrus groves and tomato gardens give vibrance to this scent of flora still clinging to the vine. Dominant notes of orange tree bark, tomato juice are rounded by drops of honeysuckle nectar.

CEDAR STACK cedar, labdanum, juniper berry, sawdust, and white musk

Cedarwood chips and dried tobacco are slightly smoked with bay leaf and crushed peppercorn to create a warm, woodsy smell. Log cabin living

PRUNUS - oakmoss, fig, plum, vanilla, and yuzu

Oriental notes of yuzu and Asian plum play dominant roles to create a fruit forward scent. Grounded in earthy oakmoss, it remains feminine and lush.

MSSR. BLANCHY - ginger root, peppercorn, grapefruit, and leather

Named after French colonist Paul Blanchy, the expat who made fortunes exporting peppercorns from Vietnam in the 1870's. A bold journey through spicy ginger, fresh cut grapefruit, and tanned leather. Complex and adventurous.

KUSH - pot, suede, white musk, tulip and amber

Green, bright, and a wisp of delicate floral. As the pot flowers and brushed suede warm up, the amber accord grounds this dank and intoxicating scent. A perennial favorite.

ASH - firewood, smoke, charcoal, palo santo and hay

Sometimes you have to burn everything down to start new. Dry hay and black coals permeate throughout the burn. A lingering accord of bright juniper berry round out this modern, smoky scent.

PETAL - tree flowers, rose, sage and patchouli

Magnolia, night–blooming tuberose, and purple geranium float you away while golden amber and exotic musk bring you back to earth in this hyper floral concoction.

JUNE'S - bergamot, cassis, anise, coriander, daffodil and tonka

Inspired by the vibrant June's All Day cafe and wine bar of Austin, Texas, the candle recalls memories of late nights spent at cafes in Le Marais district of Paris and eclectic evenings in Austin's famous South Congress Avenue. It is the embodiment of ease and sophistication. 

COIN - copper, rust, moss, saffron and plug tobacco

Scorched earth and corroded copper dance like change in your pocket, while exotic spices and rare metals act as ambassadors to ancient times.

LES - black currant, peach blossom, jasmine rice, cardamom and white cedar

In the French language, LES is the plural article used for both masculine and feminine nouns. It is also the acronym for one of New York City’s most vibrant neighborhoods—picking up on notes of rice powder, peach blossom, cardamom, cedar and Asian pear, to name just a few of its many notes. All in all, this scent is an unexpected, non-binary, cross-cultural, olfactive exploration—embracing the eclecticism that is the Lower East Side.

APIUM - Cumin, oud, patchouli, blackberry and saffron

Named after its foremost ingredient, this celery stalk is a fresh fragrance that is both botanical and earthy, thanks to its roots in parsley and purple carrots. Cumin, oud, and patchouli mix with peppery top notes, while blackberry and saffron round out the middle. This is a farmer’s market instilled in wax form

ST. AL - sandalwood, clay, clove flower, oud and ylang-ylang

The name St. Al is a play on Santal, the French term for sandalwood.  This candle has powerful notes of holy wood and exotic florals, layered with undertones of frankincense. To the nose, it’s a sanctified commingling of dominant, protective sandalwood with notes of clay, clove flower, oud and ylang-ylang. 

CASHMERE KUSH - pot flower, cashmere wood, white amber, vetiver, tulip and powdery musk

The aroma is a smoky, dark and sensual interpretation of our best-selling green scented candle. It hits deep with heady notes of dried pot flower and molecular wood, linking amber and powdery musk to form a fragrance that’s inebriating. It’s elevated; it’s decadent.
