Last week we launched our signature candles on Cooper at Home and they sold out in less than 20 minutes!! We have a big reorder on the way and are taking pre-orders now so you can reserve the scents that you want. Here is a little bit more about the collection and what makes each of our four signature scents so unique.
Scents are so closely tied to memories for me and I wanted these candles to be unique and elevate the spaces we live in without being overpowering. I started this project by combing through hundreds (not kidding) of candle scents I love and trying to identify what it was that drew me to a specific fragrance. Once I had my initial pairings I tested adding natural elements and nostalgic smells to each until I came up with four signature scents. From there I made my team, my family and my friends sniff candles until we couldn’t smell anything else and I am so proud of what we developed.
American Made & Clean Burning
It was important to me that these candles were domestically produced from the best ingredients and clean-burning. Here are some of the details and facts about the production process.
- Custom-made, small-batch scents
- Hand poured in Charleston, S.C.
- Supplied in clear glass jars with removable labels
- 50-hour burn time
- 9-ounce recyclable glass vessel
- 100% natural soy wax grown in the U.S.A.
- Pure cotton wick
- Free of toxins, carcinogens, pollutants and phthalates
All of the labels on the candle are removable so that you can reuse your jar long after you’ve enjoyed your scent. We took the candles to a photo shoot before the labels were finished and loved how clean and crisp they looked in our tablescapes. From then we worked really hard to find labels that were easy to peel off and I’m so proud of what we came up with!
Four Signature Scents
Our candle collection features four unique fragrances inspired by our favorite moments & memories and each one smells like a luxurious spa or a hotel lobby but with a unique spin. Not only are the crowd-pleasing scents, but they are also designed to complement each other. You can light one in every room of your house and they will pair together perfectly. Light a match for whatever matches your mood.

The candles ship in custom black tubes that make them so easy to gift!
What are the candles made of? // 100% natural soy wax grown in the U.S.A. with a pure cotton wick. Free of toxins, carcinogens, pollutants and phthalates.
What are the candle care instructions? // The first time you light your candle, allow it to burn until the wax melts evenly to the edge of the glass, not exceeding 3 hours. This ensures an even burn all the way down. Trim the wick ¼” between uses for a clean, bright flame.
Are the candles strong? // Each candle has a strong scent profile, making them fragrant and captivating without being overpowering. Every candle is unique but features complimentary notes so that you can burn them individually or in tandem.
How long should I light them for? // The first time you use them you should light them for 3 hours to get an even burn. This will help the candle melt evenly from center to edge. After that it’s your preference. You can burn it for an evening or just a quick pick me up throughout the day. They have a 50-hour total burn time.
How do I clean out my candle jar for reuse? // First, place the vessel in the freezer for a few hours. Once the wax remnant has hardened, gently pry it away from the glass. Finally, wash the glass with warm, soapy water to remove any residue. Voila! It’s ready to use as a planter, storage container or anything else you like.
