Calling all wanderlusters and California lovers! We're thrilled to unveil our brand new California Collection, a line of luxurious soy candles inspired by five iconic destinations within the Golden State.

This candle collection is particularly special to us as a California-based small business. Our founder, born and raised in the Bay Area, has always held a deep love for the diverse landscapes and vibrant spirit of California.

So, when San Jose International Airport's Discover San Jose store (find it near gate 11!) approached us to create a line of candles capturing California's essence, we were incredibly honored and super excited.
