Fig & Currant Candle
In the south of France, as you drive along the winding coastal road between Le Lavandou and St. Tropez, the wild fig trees that line the road fill the air with a woody luscious freshness. We married this crisp Mediterranean fig with juicy black currant, and lush florals which is finished off with a complex base of Cedarwood, Amber and Jasmine.
It took multiple attempts to get this right. Here's why this is the perfect candle:
△ Wooden wicks offer a cleaner burn and slight crackling sound. All of our wicks are naturally processed and sourced from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified mills. This purchase helps Trees.org, a critical organization aiding both tree conservation and underdeveloped communities.
△ Virgin Coconut Creme Wax is a blend of natural soy and coconut waxes and has a smooth, creamy white finish. Our waxes come from renewable sources and utilize only FDA approved waxes. We tried A LOT of waxes and this is the hands down the best.
△ Fragrances are blended with a mix of the best essential oil and fragrance oil. We've sourced formulas previously available only to luxury candle brands. We found that using less fragrance than recommended ensures the scent is never overpowering in your space.
△ Poured in small batches in our Portland, Maine studio.
△ Refillable jars. Send us this empty jar (or any container) and we will refill with one of our signature scents for about half the price of buying new candles. We believe in extending the life cycle of beautiful products by reducing waste and using sustainable ingredients.
△ 50 hours of burn time
