Brasilia Handpoured Candle
Brasilia Handpoured Candle by Wary Meyers
The rich, musky scent of strong Brazilian Rosewood. Deep and softly floral with notes of cassis and mellow sandalwood, finishing with a sweet amber musk. The bois de rose. Like drifting down the Amazon in a rosewood canoe.
Poured by Linda's artisanal hand in small, carefully crafted batches in our studio in Cumberland, Maine. 6.7 oz. 40 hour burn time.
Husband-and-wife team Wary Meyers started out in Brooklyn designing interiors for their friends and artsy-types. After a magazine column for Time Out New York and a book, they relocated to Maine, decorated their own Portland apartment which would grace many magazines and countless blogs, and still created interiors and installations back in the city. Feeling the desire to make a tangible product, they've taken their design sensibilities and infused them into enticingly scented candles and soaps, which they hand-make in their home- working in an attached former beauty salon built for the previous lady-of-the-house in the 1980's. Both the candles and soaps are informed with the Meyers' playful wit and panache, one candle fragrant with cannabis and suntan oil, and their boldly striped soaps, loosely inspired by Italian design icon Ettore Sottsass's "Superboxes" in fact look more like a design objects than anything else
