‘Dappled sunlight in wild places where smells move through space and curl like smoke. An earth perfume with mushroom nuances, mists of rain soaked ferns, and the earthen smell of dark green moss covering the cool, damp dirt of the forest floor. A dreamlike atmosphere emulating the forest and all its beauty’ Tatine
Once you experience the exquisite scent of Tatine candles you will want to fill every inch of your home with them and you’ll feel different – they are a little bit special, that’s all we’ll say.
Like the evolution of a memory retained, each ‘Stars Are Fire’ candle vessel exists beyond its initial lifetime. This smoke grey glass was handmade and mouth-blown by skilful artisans and was created to be beautifully repurposed. Each piece is unique unto itself, imbued with the spirit of the maker. Housed in a unique vintage parcel style made from 100% post-consumer soft cotton paper, its origami-folded base reveals a smattering of stars. The scent of each candle leaves its mark on the packaging and can be slipped in a drawer to emit a delicate fragrance.
Every Tatine candle is 100% handcrafted in a small studio in downtown Chicago that has been making them since 2001. The purest essential oils are carefully hand blended with vegetable waxes then hand poured into 8 oz heavy weight glassware.
Hand poured in Chicago. Margo Breznik started making candles as a hobby but this craft of hand blending the purest perfume oils captured her imagination and turned her head from a career in the music industry with renowned Chicago record label Wax Trax to begin a new venture in candle making. ‘100% handcrafted’ means just that at Tatine. Natural soy and beeswax candles, hand blended with the purest essential oils.read more
