A vibrant balance of bold & sweet notes of a untouched rose bloom
the story of "Mom's Rose"
“A rose is a rose is a rose.” It’s safe to say Gertrude Stein wasn’t talking about rose scented candles. Because I’ve never found one I love. The scent is either too light, you barely smell it or so heavily perfumed, you’re choking. Between extremes there’s a balanced scent – the perfect rose. And when my mom asked me to create a candle featuring one of her favorite scents, the perfect rose became “Mom’s Rose.”
This candle’s story took root in a flower bed below my bedroom window. But there was no rose garden, not even a bush. Just this singular thorny stem that produced one or two buds a year. It was unremarkable enough that my parents don’t remember it. Yet, when I mentioned this rose to my sister recently, it felt like reminiscing about a childhood friend whose summer visits left a life-long impression. Experiencing this rose bloom through year after year is why we never pass up the chance to stop & smell the roses today.
“Mom’s Rose” is a scent that transports you to that moment of leaning into & breathing in a freshly bloomed rose in the garden. Inspired by nature and reinforced by nurture, this scent is a vibrant balance of bold and sweet. She shows up to the party, but never overstays her welcome.
