Austin Press Candle & Snuffer Gift Set
+ $ shipping surcharge
Touch the flame.
These handmade soy and beeswax candles smell like a fantasy of Victorian England: The bright, green aroma of the Farmer’s Garden candle suggests cut grass, freshly turned soil, tiny flowers, and tomato vines; the loamy Forager’s Woods recalls wet earth, forest florals, and rich sandalwood; and the Monk’s Library conjures up cloister walls, ancient manuscripts, and sacred chants… or bergamot, black pepper, clove, lemon, and fir. All three of these evocative candles come in hand-blown glasses with cotton wicks, and will burn for 80 hours. Want to put your candle out before then? Reach into your tiny muslin bag for your hand-shaped wick snuffer and shush the flame until you’re ready to re-light it.
