The heartbreakingly lovely Pikake Jasmine is a nostalgic tribute to the free-spirited peacocks that once roamed the gardens of the noble Princess Ka'iulani. There isn't much in the way of the the exuberantly pure scent; imagine the wanderlust of Hawaii's tropical warmth blowing over an oceanic breeze with a gentle minerality. Non-fussy with depth, it's not totally aquatic by any means, but enough of an accent to inspire a right kind of spontaneous harmony from its waft.
Makana Candle Studio calls for a different kind of soy mastery. Using only lead-free cotton wicks and phthalate-free fragrances blended with organic oils, the candle burns exceptionally clean and throws with an offensive pitch; one you’d wish was actually catchable.
It’s another way of loving Jasmine with an insatiable passion that never gets enough of its aching fragility.
