RADIANT is a humble homage to the incomparable Jean-Michel Basquiat. I had the honor of viewing much of his work this summer and was touched all over by his brilliance. His innocence, clarity, and pure human-ness inspired this scent. I pray that it is a fitting aroma of remembrance for any and all gone much too soon.
Sharp, bright marigold flowers surrounded by green wood, muguet (lily of the valley,) and cedar boughs. Sliced lemon, vanilla bean, and musk exist in harmony. Ripe cassis berries mingle with neroli blossoms. This is a comforting, warm fragrance. Clean and herbaceous.

Photos of young Jean- Michel with his parents shift in and out of focus, The Beatles' "Hey, Jude" plays in the background. In each frame his eyes sparkle like diamonds, foreshadowing the riches he would offer the world in his brief but bright life.
Hand poured, flat wooden wick, luxury vegan wax blend, phthalate free fragrance oil. 12 oz = up to 80 hours of burn time. This is a large candle housed in a reusable matte white vessel.
The wooden wick creates a lightly crackling flame. Unique and comforting.
This lovely minimalist vessel is begging to be used again and again. After depleting your candle fill the cleaned container with pens, palo santo, make up brushes, or a potted plant.
Tips for getting the most of your candle...
*Burn your new candle at least 2-3 hours the first time you light it. This will allow the entire top layer of wax to liquify. This step will promote a clean burn that doesn't waste wax. A full melt pool prevents tunneling of your candle. Wax has a memory so start off right!
*Do not leave a burning candle unsupervised, near kiddos, or surrounded by flammable objects. I also keep my candles away from the wall. Do not burn over four hours at a time. Safety first!
*Before relighting your candle trim.the.wick. (Every time.) I cannot overstate the importance of this! The correct length is 1/8 of an inch. Snag a handy wick trimmer for just this purpose. Seriously such a crucial item for preventing soot and prolonging candle life.
