Japanese Cherry Blossom Handpoured Candle
The soft, enchanting air of bright cherry blossoms swaying in a slow-motion cloud of pink petals. Hints of pomegranate, green bamboo, currant, vanilla, and oak swirling in peaceful harmony. Like day-dreaming in a lovely scented Japanese forest with Mt. Fuji rising in the distance.
These candles are made from a blend of premium food grade paraffin (the exact same as what you find on chocolate and cheese), and soy wax. The wick is all cotton. The oils are the highest quality pthalates-free fragrances infused with essential oils. The boxes are made from 100% recycled paper. The glasses are made with recycled glass.
Remember to trim your wick! :)
Poured by hand in small, carefully crafted batches in Wary Meyer's 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
