Mar Mar Minis Candle Set
Mar Mar’s beautiful, sustainably made candles are each hand-poured in LA by Light 4 Life and the Exceptional Children’s Foundation, an organization that provides jobs for adults with disabilities. Their candles feature a sustainably sourced coconut wax blend, a cotton wick, and an elegant mini glass vessel that doubles as the perfect shot glass after your candle is gone. Set of three, 15-hour burn time each.
Mono No Aware: Mono No Aware is a Japanese phrase translating most simply as a sensitivity to ephemera, bittersweetness, or the happiness that something has happened mixed with the sadness that it’s no longer happening. Notes: tobacco and vervaine.
Saint Martin: Embodies the spirit of smoky late-night walks down the tree-lined canal Saint-Martin in Paris. Notes: hashish, nag champa, mesquite, vervaine.
Other Desert Cities: Sparked by a highway sign and inspired by the brutal and beautiful landscapes of Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree, Twentynine Palms, and beyond. Notes: agarwood, mesquite, santal.
A few tips to ensure optimal burning: trim wick to 1/4" before burning every time to avoid soot. burn for 2–4 hours every time, allowing wax to liquify from edge to edge to avoid tunneling. never leave a burning candle unattended. never move a candle while burning.
