Amber & Bergamot

Warm and inviting, amber and bergamot combined with subtle notes of geranium, black cardamom, sandalwood and eucalyptus.

Blue Fir & Spice 

Wonderfully fragrant blue fir pine needles combined with cedarwood, bright citrus and a touch of spice evoke the spirit of the holidays.

Chai Tea

Green tea mixed with a cozy blend of cinnamon, clove, cardamom and peppermint reminds you of your favorite tea spot.

Chamomile & Sage

Deeply restful chamomile and fresh sage combine in this soothing herbal, creating an atmosphere of calm and well-being that everyone loves.

Clementine & Lavender

A bright, fresh citrus scent of clementine, tangerine, bergamot and lemon… nicely balanced with French lavender. If you love citrus with a subtle twist, this is for you.

Fig & Citrus

Clean and slightly sweet, fresh figs infused with grapefruit, a hint of orange, and lemon zest atop an earthy base of cedar and oakmoss. Wonderfully nuanced, it’s our favorite fig scent.

French Vanilla & Oak

Sweet, familiar and deeply comforting, French vanilla combined with oak, sandalwood, grapefruit and sea salt with a hint of clove. A unique take on a classic.

Ocean Breeze

There is nothing like a fresh ocean breeze… clean and buoyant ocean air with a joyful blend of freesia, water lilies, lotus and tuberose offers a truly uplifting ambiance.

Orange Blossom & Waterlily

Fragrant orange blossoms mingle with water lily, iris and clementine leaves above a base note of vetiver. This is a delightfully elegant, soft floral.

Peppermint Drop

Just slightly sweet, this blend of crisp peppermint leaves followed by notes of fresh mint leaves will radiate the season’s joy.

Sandalwood & Oakmoss

The warmth of sandalwood blended with Baltic oakmoss, a touch of amber, and hint of patchouli give rise to this gentle wood scent – a perennial favorite.


Completely fragrance-free.
Perfect for centerpieces, dinner candles and those who prefer no scent.
