introducing our new limited-edition tomato candle. inspired by matthew and andrew’s love of gardening, this candle is a bright olfactory interpretation of home-grown tomatoes ripening in the warm summer sun.
“we are passionate gardeners and plant tomatoes every spring at our farmhouse in the hudson valley,” say founders matthew malin and andrew goetz. “by august, the smell of tomatoes is thick in the air as we harvest, cut and cook with them week after week. we created our tomato candle to capture the joy of this special season all year round.”
the fresh and verdant scent opens with a beautiful mélange of freshly-picked herbs – aromatic basil, calming lavender and cool mint leaves. vines of green ivy intertwine with the rich sweetness of a perfectly ripe tomato, melding with hints of uplifting mandarin and woodsy petitgrain to engage the senses. notes of earthy cedarwood and green pepper give the scent a soft, clean finish, recreating the abundance of aroma that permeates through andrew and matthew’s flourishing vegetable garden in the late summer.
