Fig Leaf

As a child, fresh figs were always on the menu for the most special occasions and are still one of my personal favorites. Lynn always made sure to serve these at birthdays and over the holidays, so I’m reminded of those good times when I bite into a fig to this day. Used as a sleep aid by the ancient Greeks, the fig leaf candle’s subtle and exotic scent will fill your room with the comforting aroma of sweet figs, Mediterranean lemons, amber and sandalwood. While never having traveled to the Mediterranean, the fragrance is what we dream it would be like. Sophisticated yet simple, this candle is the perfect scent for snuggling in and daydreaming of warm, blue coastlines.

Amber is very special to us, and this candle was created especially for me by Lynn. Inspired by romance (I’m really a romantic at heart), I love the rich fragrant scent. Lynn knew this would be a perfect fit because the medicinal and healing properties of amber have been revered for thousands of years. From the ancient Greeks to the Chinese, burning Amber was used to purify the air and perfume sacred spaces. Appealing to the romantic in all of us, indulge in this ancient and irresistible scent with our rich amber candle blended with Egyptian musk.

Cashmere

We still remember when we received our first cashmere garment and its warmth, comfort and elegance is something we still treasure. I love treating Lynn to new Cashmere sweaters or scarves—a simple luxury I know she’ll love but wouldn’t think to buy for herself. A great reason to look forward to winter and a beautiful way to bring luxury to the everyday, nothing keeps you warm quite like cashmere does. Now you can wrap yourself in this inspired and sophisticated herbal scent infused with the inviting aroma of patchouli, Persian limes and a touch of vanilla, our Cashmere candle will warm up any room.

Pumpkin

We can’t believe how Halloween snuck up on us this year! We’re busy getting ready for the season here in Indiana, planning our Halloween costumes and carving pumpkins for display. Growing up, we’d make a day of it. Lynn let us choose our own pumpkins, and she’d help carve them around the kitchen table. But the brilliant orange pumpkin isn’t just good for making pies and jack-o-lanterns. Pumpkins were long used by Native Americans as an antiseptic to cleanse and purify the body, though now I love roasting the seeds with spices and the pulp with fresh potted herbs to create beautiful, seasonal meals at home surrounded by family. Now in candle form, burn this earthy, autumnal scent to purify and perfume any room.
