Carnations were my grandmother's favorite flower, so that note serves as the heart of the final scent in this candle line. This might be the most complex of all the offerings here: a blend of the smoky, floral and earthy in a way that's hard to pin down and yet comfortingly familiar all the same.
I wondered if I could formulate a fragrance that transcended the seasons and could be used all year-round. The ancient Greeks came up with two words for time: chronos and kairos. "Chronos" refers to chronological time: the seconds of a minute, the minutes of a day, the days in a year. Kairos, on the other hand, refers to moments and the idea that everything happens in its own time in a manner that can't be quantified. My hope is that this could be a "kairos" candle—a scent reflective of no particular time or season that can meet you in any given moment, regardless of whether flowers are budding or snow covers the ground.
