Androgyne began with Ingrid's love of Paris – from the hotels, to the music, to the sounds of the street and of course, the people. It's an exploration of sensuality and the space beyond binaries. Neither masculine nor feminine, this is a scent that seems to shift ever so slightly with time. If "je ne sais quoi" could be embodied in a fragrance, this would be it.
BY THE WAY...
All of our products are made by hand, so you may notice some slight variations or imperfections. This includes: small dents or scratches on the packaging, minor discoloration of the wax, labels that aren't perfectly straight, etc. None of these things impact the quality of the candle or its burn.
I absolutely adore this candle! The scent is exactly the notes listed, but I spent more time marveling at how wonderful it smelled than trying to pick out individual notes. It's Paris. It's chic without being stuffy. It's dewy skin. It's silk bed sheets. It's the beautiful person across the room. It's a marble bar top strewn with rose petals. It's a gin and elderflower liquor cocktail. It's a curved red velvet couch. It's back seam stockings. It's dainty gold jewelry. It's the silken brush of a peony petal. It's skin flushed with anticipation. The throw is solid without being overpowering, very noticeable in the large room I burn it and the adjacent hallway. For me, the most impressive part is how dang long this thing burns. I'm a writer, so it's pretty typical of me to get my tea, my notes, arrange the 87 blankets on the couch, light a candle and then be lost in another world for 5+ hours, so I mean it when I say this little sucker just keeps on going.
this candle smells like a dream.
Candles have am amazingly wide throw!
Androgyne has an amazingly wide throw of scent (I also have heatwave and this one similarly fills the room)! We have tall ceilings and our kitchen/living space is combined so it is quite a large space to fill but this candle does just that! It's a scent that doesn't disappear into the background after a while of burning and lingers even after you have snuffed it out. It's a lovely and unique scent and despite being able to fill the room, does not give me a headache or feel overwhelming. The notes are quite unique too. As you move and shift about the room you catch different angles of the scent! Another important thing to note is that the wax and wick burn slow so the candle lasts a long time and the wick doesn't do that smoking thing at the tip of the flame creating soot that some candles tend to do.
I’m so impressed with these candles! They really do fill a whole room with their scent which is so hard to find in a candle. I can tell the scents were so carefully curated and I can’t wait to purchase more.
This candle is sexy
Is it weird to say this candle is sexy? Maybe. But it’s true! The notes of lavender and sea salt bring a freshness I wasn’t expecting. It’s the kind of scent you can burn at any time and it feels perfectly in place - it isn’t too strong and it isn’t too floral either. I wish this was a perfume because I would live in it.
