After a day trekking all over the city, this is just the calming force we need. Handmade in Brooklyn, this candle its much more complex than simply fig. Opening the jar, top notes of rosewood and honeysuckle hit the nose, reminding us of languid summer afternoons relaxing on the porch. When lit, the smell deepens to a sun-warmed Mediterranean fig, ending on the herbaceous aroma of patchouli. Deep breaths.... ahhhh.
