This Month’s Fragrance Story: Valentine’s Day Edition
Love is in the air and whether you plan on celebrating Valentine’s Day enthusiastically or begrudgingly, it’s coming up quick. Candles and romance naturally go hand-in-hand. So read on to see how 1502 Candle Co. has got you covered.
The Evolution of “Love” (It doesn’t require anyone except you!)
Historically, the culture that has evolved around this holiday has really bummed out anyone who was single when February 14th rolled around. But with the tidal wave of support for self-love and self care taking hold (if you haven’t noticed: it’s more than a passing phase so anyone who hasn’t: embrace it!!), we know it can be appreciated among a much broader base.
What we’re getting at here is obviously so much larger than Valentine’s Day, but it offers a perfect reminder that the most important objection of your affection should really be yourself. Without embracing and fully accepting what makes you such an awesome individual, it’s hard to fully open up and let anyone else in.
Whether cupid’s arrow is aimed your way or not this year, we have some amazing candles to share with you…
Champagne & Roses
Equally appropriate for your boo or to simply set the mood for date night, Champagne & Roses remains a limited-edition customer favorite. We’ve managed to capture the effervescent fizz of bubbly, followed up with sweet, green floral rose notes. This beautiful handcrafted candle is finished with dried rose petals, so it looks as pretty as it smells.
Love Yo Self
While Champagne & Roses evokes a romantic night in, our Love Yo Self candle invites you to turn inward. We use this Sandalwood & Rose candle to meditate on self-acceptance and love in its purest form. If you need a nudge to get started, check out some of our favorite guided meditations on the subject:
This complex fragrance combines masculine sandalwood with delicate, feminine rose. Top notes include woods and greenery, followed by rose petals and rich earth, balanced and finished with base notes of musk.
