Inspiration. Serengeti, 1981. We awoke before daybreak. Sunrise in the Serengeti was magnificent and evasive creatures would still be lurking about. The perfect time to get the perfect shot. We were between parks when the open rover came to an abrupt stop. And in an instant, I found myself meeting eyes with the feline, only a veil of glass between us. And in the next instant, she was gone. I hadn’t taken a shot, but her photograph remains ingrained in my mind. Rich caramel and strokes of vanilla bean on a chiseled canvas. And emerald eyes housing those tiny coconut pupils. No fear. Magnificent.

To use, ensure the wick is trimmed to ¼”. Allow the wax to melt and pool to the edges of the vessel to prevent tunneling. This is especially important on the first burn. Remember to snuff wick once done. 

Pro Tip: When your candle is done, repurpose the vessel. Some great ideas include a makeup brush holder or a small planter!
