Candle Experiment #2
This variant is currently sold out
Stanford's thought about this candle: "I find that a lot of people take their nose for granted. People know what smells good and smells bad, but in my experience, it's rare for people to think about what they smell and even rarer to connect it to other experiences. The nose is just like any other muscle, and muscle memory is real."
Candle making is tough. Scent design is even harder. If you've been to our studio space, we have a 7-foot tall shelf filled with fragrance oils. This is our fragrance library. Some days we add to it, some days we throw scents out. But, we use all these fragrances to create the scents that end up in our candles and goods.
As our friend, and studio assistant, Daniel recently discovered, custom-blending scents takes a lot of practice. The first version of this candle smelled like laundry detergent... which isn't totally bad. But, through a few trials, lots of errors, and turning the studio into a mad scientist's lab, Daniel created this blend:
Top Notes: Jasmine, grapefruit, yuzu
Middle Notes: Neroli, petitgrain
Base Notes: Sandalwood, white pepper
It's REALLY nice!!
