LW scented candles | The Snake & The Octopus 

 

the Story | the Snake :

Snakes are winding in silver thru vetiver grass, that with the strongest of roots,
growing vertically in the dark beneath, like underground curtains.
Rising up against the light and the potent green, is the scent of sandal wood.

the Story | the Octopus

The octopus carry no scent or no skeleton but three hearts,
as it moves skillfully & serene in the empire of endless motion that is water.
In concurrence with the attraction of the moon it tell tales of illusion,
sending poetry in ink to disappear, leaving their attacker fogged and bewildered
left only in depth & darkness.
This depth, to us, has to carry the scent leaving us in vertigo;
that of roasted dark coffee & animal-like musk.
All for the three hearts.

 These LW scented candles are hand-crafted & massive,
made of a natural palm wax blend, derived from sustainable palm kernel oil,
– which is a natural alternative to petroleum based wax,
offering a cleaner & much longer burn time.

The candle is then placed in a ceramic jar that illustrator & warrior Sara N Bergman,
has designed for Love Warriors, ~ & that, after it’s burnt out
{you’re gonna need patience here, cause these bad boys burn for a looOoong time.}
are stunning for cotton, q tips or that bath salt refill in the bathroom, 
all kinds of nick-nacks on a work desk, or, – as we use ours;
as coffee cups.. oh, how perfect with a lid when you’re passionate
about what you do and tend to forget the coffee by your side.
not to mention the cool factor of serving guests  like that..
.. we imagine a dinner table set with these beauties as holding the starter, 
on top of the other ceramics*; hiding a fabulous soup,
~ or on the side; concealing a dark, sumptuous hot chocolate fudge cake.
yum!
{yes. it’s friday & we’re getting in the mood for after work goodness}..

 

peace, love and chocolate,

the Warriors

indian summer – the scents

scent has something magic to it, already in its name somehow,
~ & we’ve probably all had experiences of time travel in its company.
one of our most magic experiences involving scent at all, 
must be the hours we spent selecting top, ~ & base notes for these,
our first scented candles. just the setting.. an all white little candle factory
in the outskirts of the jungle; where the american owner had a longterm standing
collaboration with the world capital of perfume; grasse in france.

we travelled, in many ways, together that glowing afternoon;
carefully opening tiny apothecary bottles in long rows, 
labelled with their special perfume, ~ & mixing these, our three
final scents to start off with. a light, airy one; later named love and linen,
a ’middle one’, with flowery tones and history,
~ & a heavier one, with musky chocolate. something for each taste.

we would sit and listen to their stories of the scents,
~ & one in particular we so enjoyed; having seen both men and
woman wear a flower behind their ear in the little town.
we were taught the chempaka flower is used for worship in the temples,
but also worn as a sign, behind the ear of singles, to send the
fragrant & beautiful message that they are looking for love.
