Stark Soy Wax Cactus Flower Candle: In Stock

One whiff of this cactus flower-scented candle, and I had instant flashbacks to my family's road trip through Santa Fe (way, way back when): wafts of pinion smoke through the dry desert/mountain air.

This soy candle from LA-based waxing studio, Stark, hits the nail on the head with its earthy-smoky blend of ginger and frankincense. An added plus: the candle totally transcends seasons. By now I'm sort of over pinecone-heavy versions that scream Christmas, though not quite ready for lilacs and gardenias. I'm lighting this one up, and pretending I'm in Old Santa Fe.
