Makana Pikake Jasmine Soy Candle


If spring has a standout candle, Pikake Jasmine would be it. Jasmine candles are always worth sniffing out, but Makana…well, let’s say to call it anything less than outstanding just wouldn’t be fair. Pikake Jasmine is in its own class of fetching sweetness; the bold floral is sultry, heady and smooth. Even the candle's strong cold throw is infinitely chic when you first unwrap the eco-minded packaging.

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.
