Aerangis

"Named for the white, star-shaped orchid that sparked my first scent memory, Aerangis (Air-ANG-giss) began with a simple mission: to use the power of fragrance to unlock forgotten memories, and immortalize moments worth remembering." Handcrafted in small batches with non-toxic materials

8 oz. No. 1 The Beginning Candle 0 8 oz. No.212 Concrete Jungle Candle 0 8 oz. No. 0324 Aging Spirits Candle 0
8 oz. No. 1 The Beginning Candle 8 oz. No.212 Concrete Jungle Candle 8 oz. No. 0324 Aging Spirits Candle
The scent memory that started it all: the discovery of the Aerangis flower in a Taiwanese garden. The scent of The Beginning is elegant, clean, and comforting. It evokes the purity and simplicity of the white, star-shaped orchid that emits a fresh green scent. Musk and sandalwood also wrap the soft florals, adding a hint of warmth Edgy, yet welcoming, this scent captures the sensory contradictions of midtown Manhattan on a wet fall day. Petrichor, minerality, and bright bergamot elicit New York City’s damp concrete and sharp skyline facades of granite and steel, while hyacinth, musk, and cedar provide a counteracting softness and warmth reminiscent of freshly prepared bouquets at the neighborhood bodega. The soul of New Orleans’ nightlife captured in a scent that is dark, spicy, and intoxicating. This alluring scent is born from memories of candlelit taverns tucked between alleyways, where patrons converse over Sazeracs and jazz, or contemplate life while watching an Absinthe fountain drip, all the while Cajun spices from local cuisine whirl in the sultry night air.

8 oz. No. 51 Secret Garden Candle 8 oz. No. 07 Seven Miles Candle 8 oz. No. 2598 The Ranch Candle
A sensory refuge, this scent embodies a sense of calm, the peacefulness of nature, and feelings of warmth, family, and familiarity. It was crafted from the memory of a hidden Oriental-style garden in Taiwan where family, and a brewing pot of sweet, oolong tea, could always be found, and where the woodsy-smoky smell of incense from a morning prayer ritual blended with the wet, grassy freshness of the surrounding plants. Velvety and sensual, this floral fragrance captures the essence of orange jasmine with notes of white gardenia, silky musk, and citrus blossoms. Ylang ylang and hints of sticky nectar meld together as the candle burns, evoking memories of Taiwan’s tropical humid evenings.  The signature scent of the Vineyard collection, this candle captures fond memories of the founder’s ranch home, located on a vineyard in upstate New York. The scent is masculine, warm, and inviting — its inspiration a wood-paneled study populated with old books and aged leather furniture, and where the smell of tobacco from a burning cigar competes with the smoldering embers in the fireplace, diluted only by an occasional blast of the fresh country air.

Perfume History

Perfume history goes back to the Cleopatra, Rome, Greece and the Far East. Francis I brought back Italian customs of wearing scent (1525) and Catherine de Medici brought her own perfumer to France. In the time of Louis XIV (1638-1715), France entered the competition and vied for control the trade with the East for spices and aromatics. They planted aromatics and under royal protection the French perfume industry was born and nurtured. His personal perfumer made a special scent for him each day. In Grasse, perfume existed since the Middle Ages to cover the odor of leather gloves, and was extended to soap made from olive oil produced there. Soon even wigs were powdered with fragrance. The 18th century popularized potpourri in Sèvres porcelain; eau de cologne (originally scented spirits brought back from Cologne during the Seven Years War); blending for more complex fragrances; and crystal perfume bottles. The industry declined during the French Revolution, but was enhanced by Napoleon both through organic chemistry and his own use of several bottles a day!
