BEAT THE HEAT: TRAVEL TO OCTOBER

BEAT THE HEAT: TRAVEL TO OCTOBER

Creating scents is an incredible responsibility. They are so personal. A certain smell can instantly transport someone back to a time and place so far away you’d think it was impossible to relive it. Bottling up emotions (literally, not metaphorically) and telling stories with scent is at the core of making candles.

That’s why taking the time to be inspired is so important. Our scents are all inspired by our own travels, adventures and general shenanigans. But HOW can we think about beautiful Fall when it’s 100 degrees outside here in Phoenix? This little exercise took our mind off of the heat for sure.

Sit down, close your eyes and jump into Fall. What does it look like? What are you doing? How do you feel? What are you wearing?

Dirty leaves.
Pumpkin beer.
Scarves.
Boots.
Firewood.
Porch conversations.
Wet moss.
Chilly adventures.
Cabins.
Stargazing.
Pinecones.
Wool blankets.

That’s our Fall. What’s yours?

TAKING IN THE VIEWS

TAKING IN THE VIEWS

We are lucky enough to have access to a family cabin in the north-eastern mountains of Arizona. The area, known locally as "the rim" is a geographic playground of forest, lakes, afternoon showers, sweeping sunsets and lots of dirt roads. Only two hours from Phoenix, it is the perfect spot to escape the sweltering summer heat and soak in fresh air, clean and pure water and sweeping vistas that remind us how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful state. 

A lot of what inspires us comes from nature and the notion of adventuring. Traveling and getting outdoors is what makes us thrive and helps bring new concepts for our products to our customers. Next, we will work on that work/life balance that everyone keeps talking about so that maybe we can adventure as much as we used to!
