Uyir is our passion project and an ode to our Tamil culture.
We grew up in a tight-knit Tamil-Canadian diasporic community that delighted in the shared experiences and culture our loved ones migrated with them through adversity. Nevertheless, as with many things in life, our cultural identity began to fade with time, space, and personal circumstance. Something that never faded, however, was the familiar scents of those cultural delights. Uyir, Vol. 1, is our preliminary collection of custom-blended fragrance candles true to those memories.
To kindle one is to rekindle a time lost, to rekindle a time dear.
