Gold Dust Woman
Smells like listening to your scratched rumours record in the middle of the night, surrounded by incense while you read your birth chart. supported with sultry notes of nutmeg and nag champa. Scent notes: incense, nag champa, nutmeg.
Citrus, tobacco, cedar. An invigorating scent that represents The Sun's elements of vitality, warmth and fulfillment. The scent of the universe coming together and agreeing with your path.
Eucalyptus, spearmint, rosemary. A spa-like scent that suggests illusion and deception, and therefore often suggests a time when something is not as it appears to be. A gentle reminder that you may be expecting the worst from your friends, family, and lovers when, in reality, they are devoted.
Raw honey, cocoa butter, cinnamon. A sweet scent that is reminiscent of renewed hope and faith and a sense that you are truly blessed by the universe at this time.
Take It Easy
Smells like driving through your hometown block with the windows down in the middle of spring; like bunches of lilacs that you mom picked from the garden, with notes of cucumber and green tea. Scent notes: lilac, cucumber, green tea.
The smell of seeing loved ones come through your front door for the first time in far too long, a much-needed phone call to help patch the distance, memories of Saturday mornings waking up on the couch after a long night out, surrounded by groggy friends. A semisweet, comforting blend of brown sugar, warm spices and smoked myrrh fills the room with warmth and thoughts of nostalgia and hope for when we can one again say “come over; come home. You’ve been missed and you are loved.”
Smells like sleepless nights spent writing lyrics in your well-worn journal, reminiscing about lost loves and lives that could have been. Scent notes: spiced plum, cypress, saffron. a warm, sultry scent.
Smells like lime, coconut, mango and pineapple. Inspired by an afternoon spent sipping drinks a patio in the beautiful Cuban neighborhood of Little Havana in Miami on a sweltering summer's day.
Smells like wildflowers and wild berries growing on the rolling hillsides of historic Laurel Canyon. With notes of daisy, wild strawberry and agave, it's neither too sweet nor too floral but a balanced scent reminiscent of a summer breeze.
Smells like nostalgic childhood memories of summer nights spent by the lake; watching the stars rise above the sky, searching for the Big Dipper as the loons cry out and the bullfrogs croak. The dock creaking below you as you shift your weight; the scent of pine needles and fresh air filling your lungs as you see a shooting star dart across the sky. Scent notes: fresh air, amber, dockside evenings. A fresh, slightly masculine scent.
Smells like the California sunshine streaming through your window while you daydream about the future you know you’re destined for; like feverishly writing lyrics in your journal and singing in the shower when no one’s around. Smells like honeycomb balanced out by raw oats because being too sweet never got anybody anywhere when it comes to breaking records and touring the world. Scent notes: honey, oatmeal, musk.
The first burn is the most important. When lighting your candle for the first time, make sure you wait until the wax has melted evenly across the candle. By ensuring the whole surface has melted before you extinguish your candle, you'll avoid tunnelling and help your candle last longer.
Before re-lighting your candle, make sure you trim it to a 1/4 inch to ensure the smoothest possible burn and to ensure the flame doesn’t get too high.
When there’s 1/2 inch of wax left at the end of your jar, it’s time to restock! to get the very most use of those last bits of wax, you can pop your candle in the freezer, chip out the remaining wax with a spoon, and melt it in a wax melter.
Don’t leave your candles unattended or light them before falling asleep. A watched fire is a safe fire.
Make sure your candle is out of reach of kids, pets and your friend who becomes a bit of a pyromaniac after a few drinks.
