This candle is hand-poured with 100% renewable soy (vegetable) wax and has a paper core wick. The wax is specially formulated to hold scent, and we add as much fragrance as possible. Every candle gives off a lingering, beautiful aroma. Sensual, fresh, intensely floral. A single note from boughs of springtime lilacs brightened with subtle hints of jasmine, neroli, and freesia.
