Great winter candle
Date:December 27, 2013
I got this little votive to try the fragrance and I was very surprised. The scent is like your favorite currant candle only blended with subtle spices and whipped with winter. It is a perfect scent for after the holidays.
The votive itself is very strong, easily scenting a whole room and more. I am ordering the big boy size.

Bitter Orange & Cedar Votive Candle
Capturing the forest’s deep enchantment, this aromatic votive candle evokes a place where fragrant beauty grows wild. Made with high-quality food-grade paraffin wax and a woodland-inspired fragrance of sweet herbs, rare spices and resinous sap. Makes an easy-to-give gift that produces a fragrant flicker in any environment.

Serious Scented Votive
Date:August 22, 2012
This is one serious votive. Even with two windows open, it fills the room with a modern original fragrance. Autumn spices with the warmth of an Indian summer. It's a perfect sample size.
 
Comforting. Pure. The dark of the forest pierced by bright sun.

A New Fall Classic
Date:August 21, 2012
When the sugar maples along the Massachusetts Turnpike start turning crimson and the local bittersweet berries begin to bolt their bright orange, it's time for fall. I came home today and immediately started a Bitter Orange and Cedar candle. The fragrance is perfect, even on this late August evening, long before the end of summer olive leaves of the oaks turn to brown and the beeches become golden. For us, autumn is less an exact date on a calendar or a period of time. It is a season of change, transition and traditions. It starts when we choose to welcome the change. This fragrance wonderful. It has the depth of autumn woods and the richness of seasonal spices without being common and predictable. It is both clean and musky. It is like reaching for your favorite sweatshirt on the first chilly morning in late September: comforting and familiar with a wave of nostalgia. Autumn is here.

 Brandied Pumpkin & Chestnut Candle
Brandied Pumpkin & Chestnut Candle
Subtle yet sumptuous, this richly scented candle kindles the warmth of brandied pumpkin, comforting spices, honeyed amber and ancient woods. Burns cleanly and casts a welcoming aura even when unlit. Beautifully boxed with hand-touched details for an ideal aromatic candle gift.

Classic and modern but vintage
Date:August 20, 2012
Growing up, my grandmother always made pumpkin pie from an old family recipe. It was what I looked forward to the most at Thanksgiving. This candle brings me back to being young and hiding the leftover pie in the fridge to save for breakfast the following morning, a custom I still do all these years later. The frangrance has the right balance of pumpkin spice and warm woods. There is a rich depth to the fragrance. It is fall and falling leaves, carrying firewood and simmering spices. When you smell it for the first time there is an immediate recollection of autumn and memories past. And then there is a celebration of customs and traditions yet to come.
