Flamingo Estate Organic Candles
Climbing Tuscan Rosemary: The “mist of the sea,” Rosemary is the objet d’amour of Romans, Greeks, and honeybees everywhere, its scent oft detected wafting amongst the cypress trees and ruins of golden hour strolls. For centuries, this ubiquitous herb has been used as a mental stimulant, said to enhance memory, intelligence, and creative dreaming. Light up.
Roma Heirloom Tomato: Conjures memories of late summer dinner parties in Sicily. We worship the tomato. Ripe, supple and bursting with juice, the scent of the heirloom tomato catapults us to memories of late summer dinner parties in Sicilian gardens and awakens pleasure in all our uncommon senses.
Olive Tree: Nothing is new under the sun. Time is not a line, but an endless circle. As we orbit around, yet again, a new solar return, we are reminded about the cyclical, spiraling nature of things. The seasons remind us we’re in a constant state of coming around to ourselves. Getting back to basics. And reviving all the parts of the world that have stood the test of time. In that spirit, we’re plumbing the depths of ancient wisdom with our Olive Tree candle — an homage to old things, made suddenly new, and the power inherent in coming around again.
Adriatic Muscatel Sage: Sacred, spiritual, and wholly transportive. The ritualistic burning of sage can clear negative energies and bring in the good stuff. The sage in this candle carries with it salt breezes from the Adriatic — a scent that alleviates stress and promotes a sense of well-being.
Euphoria: Formulated for euphoria and joy. Its fragrance is something we have a hard time describing. A hard, sweet slap in the face. It swirls in the back of your nose and instantly picks us up. Layered with Ionian Bergamot, Damask Rose, Pink Peppercorn, and White Sandalwood.
Clarity: Lighting this is like conjuring the forest wind. As the wax warms, the essential oils begin to travel, and forest air fills the room with the crisp, smokey, sweet scents of Vetiver, Douglas Fir, Angelica Root, and a hint of Basil. The essential oil of Douglas Fir is distilled from boughs gathered in British Columbia’s highly-oxygenated Great Bear Rainforest. Our Vetiver is regeneratively grown and contains a high mycorrhizae content to help microorganisms flourish in nutrient-rich soil.
