This candle is hand-poured with 100% renewable soy (vegetable) wax and has a paper core wick. The wax is specially formulated to hold scent, and we add as much fragrance as possible. Every candle gives off a lingering, beautiful aroma. A lasting floral, a compelling, classic bouquet. A richly sweet, heady aroma, accented by gardenia, jasmine, warm amber, and orange flower.
