To take a minute to slow down and burn a candle. Watch the flame flicker. Experience a scent filling the room. And letting that be kind of a ritual or inspiration to yourself.

Whether it makes you energized or more productive or think of someone or creates a memory. I would just hope that they bring a sense of happiness in some form.

We make eco-friendly soy candles. All of our scents are inspired by nature, travel, and different experiences.

What I love about Brooklyn is Brooklyn has such a renegade spirit. There’s this creative energy in the air. People you see on the subway, in restaurants, in shops just doing their own thing and really carving their own way through life. And I find that very inspiring.

There have been a lot of studies that burning petroleum-based or paraffin candles releases certain toxins into the air. A lot of candles are made with paraffin wax. It’s a cost cutting measure for a lot of candle manufacturers.

We use domestically-grown soy. And soy also has a lot of really great qualities. It burns a lot longer than paraffin wax does; it burns very cleanly.

The Sunday Morning scent was inspired by an early morning jaunt to the farmer’s market. Smells of fresh fruit and freshly picked flowers. A lot of people have very slow Sunday mornings and I wanted to capture that. Sunday Morning features notes of Anjou Pear, Gardenia, Jasmine, and Bergamot. And it’s anchored by Amber Woods.

People give to other people to show them that they love them or they care or they’re thinking of them. And for them to be a vessel for that is very inspiring to me and it makes me happy that we’re doing what we’re doing.
