CURIONOIR Candle | Gardenia's Shadow
Gardenia, Ylang ylang, Patchoulli, Mint, Vanilla
Curio Glass candles burn for 55+ hours.
Curio Glass is a range of individually handblown coloured glass candles.
Each piece in the Curio Glass range is crafted in New Zealand, one at a time, so no two pieces are ever exactly the same, and are finished with a Curio Noir stamp reminiscent of wax seals of old. All candles tell an inspired story and are scented with a unique perfume created in Grasse.
CURIONOIR uses biodegradable botanical wax and lead free cotton wicks.
Our botanical wax is sourced from a sustainable plantation that sponsors the
Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary in Sandakan, Borneo.
Steam presses on the glass, and the flowers sing as they’re pulped.
Oil clings to the silver lining. Concoct and decant: then from the bottle comes a drop of liquid crystal.
Taste us in the stain of herbs mashed underfoot.
See us as a punch of colour, bright behind closed eyes.
Smell the cut-flower vase: it’s us, relaxing into throes of scented death.
We are an impossible essence. And somehow we are here, in vert syrup,
in solid fog suspended.
