THE STRIKE OF A MATCH. THE LIGHT OF A CANDLE.
Scent that slowly rises. Dropping the needle on your favourite LP. Such a sweet ritual.
We believe the small pause that lighting your candle brings is worth honouring; how a small action brings forth a steady, warm light. With fragrance blends as diverse as the folks who burn them, our candles were made for both quiet, sacred moments alone and cozy gatherings with the ones you love most.
THE PARLOUR CARRIES: THE VINYL COLLECTION
Inspired by classic rock, the candles in the vinyl collection are created with scents that will evoke nostalgia and will fit perfectly in the cozy corner in your home where you play your favourite records.
Edge of Seventeen
Sweet orange, patchouli, lemongrass. The scent of getting ready for a night out in the city. Banishing your anxiety by turning up Stevie Nicks and channeling her mix of sheer power and vulnerability. Howling along while doing your hair and makeup in your best velvet jumpsuit.
Sympathy for the Devil
Cassia, allspice, hemp seed. The spicy scent of rock n roll rebellion, freedom in an old Ford Mustang, old records scattered on the floor, the alluring possibility of the fun kind of danger.
Gold Dust Woman
Gold dust woman: smells like listening to your scratched rumours record in the middle of the night, surrounded by incense while you read your birth chart. supported with sultry notes of nutmeg and nag champa. Fragrance notes: incense, nag champa, nutmeg.
Smoke, bourbon, vanilla. The scent of sneaking out to your best friend’s older brother’s campfire with a mickey of whiskey hidden in your boot. A memory of shouting over the crackling bonfire when Aerosmith comes on the pickup truck speaker, telling them to turn it up.
Smells like wearing your first sweetheart’s flannel during a cool winter’s evening, their familiar scent draped around your shoulders as the local small town classic rock station plays through the static. A refreshing blend of pine, vanilla musk and amber (refreshing, masculine scent).
The smell of seeing loved ones come through your front door for the first time in far too long, a much-needed phone call to help patch the distance, memories of Saturday mornings waking up on the couch after a long night out, surrounded by groggy friends. A semisweet, comforting blend of brown sugar, warm spices and smoked myrrh (semisweet, comforting scent) filling the room with warmth and thoughts of nostalgia and hope for when we can once again say “come over; come home. You’ve been missed and you are loved.
