The Inspiration: My grandmother, whom my sisters and I affectionately called Nana, was a feisty 4’9” lady from Long Island, New York. Born in 1911, she lived through two world wars, the Great Depression, and so much else. In her younger days, she and her husband would go see “the fights”, went to speakeasies, and enjoyed Manhattan cocktails. She raised two children, my uncle and my mom, and never remarried after her husband died in 1951.
When she turned 65, she came to live with my family. Nana was always baking goodies and would give you a hard pinch on the underside of your arm if you failed to greet her as soon as you came home. With one hand perched on her hip and the other wagging a pointed finger in your face, she would scold the offender with, “You didn’t say Hello to me!” When she dressed up, she wore her faux fur coat, a red lip, and her favorite perfume, Red Door. She liked her scents strong, and her perfume would quickly overtake a room and outcompete any other aroma.
This scent is an homage to my Nana, Blanche, and her signature scent. Blanche scented candles are made using soy wax from US-grown soybeans.
FRAGRANCE - Across our product lines, our premium fragrance oils are:
- Used in proportions that comply with standards established by the International Fragrance Association
WAXES - Our waxes are either a custom blended vegetable (non-palm) soy wax, or a coconut apricot wax blended with a small amount of FDA-approved food grade wax. The candle description identifies the wax type used in creating the candle.
VESSELS - Our unique candle vessels are made from 100 percent recycled glass in Spain. These beautiful green-tinted glass jars have tiny imperfections in the glass surface and we love the distinguished character they give to the vessels.
We sometimes offer candles in straight-sided jars and preferentially select glass with recycled content. These glasses and the accompanying tin lids can be reused or recycled.
WICKS - We use cotton wicks with a paper core specifically designed for the waxes used in our candle lines. Wicks are dipped in a natural wax by the manufacturer for stabilization.
LIDS - Our cork lids are sustainably produced in Portugal. Contact us if you would like a clean cork lid to use with your repurposed vessel!
