White Bergamot & Basil Candle - Kaufmann Mercantile

This candle is hand-poured into a reusable ceramic vessel. When the candle is lit, a rich herbal scent will fill the air, making the room feel as though breezes from Mediterranean shores have swept through the room, topped with notes of bright, citrusy bergamot and rich, herbal basil. Each candle rests in a raw ceramic container that echoes the clean white lines of modernist architecture. Once the candle has burned all the way down, the ceramic container can hold household objects, from paper clips to cotton balls. The white-on-white ceramic holder is exclusive to Kaufmann Mercantile.

Use & Care

Keep the wick trimmed to 1/4” for the best possible burn. Candles should only be burned for three to four hours at a time. 

Production & Design

Standard Wax was started by close friends Sam Thompson and Andrew King, who met when their chairs were placed back to back at a graphic design job. King had long been a potter, and Thompson was attracted to a ceramic log he had created, which she thought would make a nice holiday gift for her mother if it was filled with a candle. King challenged Thompson to make the candle herself. “Candle making is really a science,” says Thompson. It took her one year of trial and error to create a candle that looks good and burns well. Once the candle making process was perfected, Thompson and King joined forces and began Standard Wax in a spacious Arizona production space.

To make this candle, King will make the ceramic containers, then Thompson will melt the wax down and add fragrance. The wax and sent elements are then left to meld together for four to five days. When they are solidified as a single entity, wicks are inserted into the stoneware candle bases and held straight with clothespins. The scented wax is hand-poured into each stoneware container and left to settle. Wicks are then trimmed to the right length and the candles are ready to be lit.
