Wanderlust Canister Candle Monument Valley
/’wɒndəlʌst/, n. an instinctive impulse to rove or travel about. Smell is the most evocative of our senses, often taking us to another time and another place. Our Wanderlust range is inspired by our travels across the world, capturing and sharing a little piece of each destination's essence. Each candle has been designed and hand poured at the Down To The Woods studio in Melbourne, Australia. Wanderlust Monument Valley Candle captures the subtle freshness of cactus and coyote melon; it’s both green and calming. The inspiration stems from days spent at the Monument Valley Navajo Nation Reservation. It was part of an extended family roadtrip that stretched along 6000 km’s of ever-varying landscapes of West Coast USA. None more striking than that of Monument Valley; the dramatic, richly coloured ochre earth spiked with sandstone buttes. The landscape appeared like a giant sundial with shadows playing across these amazing natural forms with the passing of the hours. The saturation of warm tones contrasted to the brightness of the sky and the eventual setting of the sun gave way to a landscape full of pastel colours. Handmade from pure soy wax, the finest of oils and lead free wick. Enjoy approximately 72 hours of burn time. After use, repurpose the tin and bag, pin up this postcard - a little snap of our trip to Monument Valley.
