A portion of sales from this product go to two organizations we love: Hope Heals & Atlanta Mission. For the past few years, we've released something special for Giving Tuesday to kick off the holiday season. For 2023, it's a wrapped-up-and-ready-to-go version of our Mashburn candle. Each of our four scents has been gift-wrapped in its own custom paper that we created using vintage, 19th-century marbled endsheets… tied with waxed cotton cord… and topped with a matching box of matches. Ready for your recipient to unwrap and light right away. The No. 150 scent is paired with a very cool yellow, grey, and orange Turkish marble pattern and has notes of notes of vetiver, rhum, cognac, and leather. Perfumed in Grasse and poured by hand in Montreal, each candle is made of a sustainable soy/coconut wax blend and housed in Mashburn-green glass with a deckle edge, foil-stamped label. 150 is named for Sid’s first apartment in New York and feels accordingly masculine yet fresh, with a scent that’s both green and smoky. And in celebration of Giving Tuesday 2023, a portion of sales is split between Hope Heals, a week-long camp experience and year-round community that offers resources, rest, and relationships to families affected by disabilities, strokes, and traumatic brain injuries (including the Mashburns) + Atlanta Mission, the city’s largest and longest-running provider of services to those experiencing homelessness, located just down the street from our headquarters. Two causes close to our hearts.

Pro tip: the first time you light a candle, let it burn for 2-3 hours, or until the whole surface is liquid. Wax has muscle memory, and this trains it to burn evenly and last as long as possible. You'll also want to get in the habit of trimming the wick to 1/4" before lighting to prevent tunneling and excessive smoking.
“Anyone who has taken a psychology class knows that a familiar scent can transport you right back to where you were. Just like music, it pulls a trigger in your brain. Sid has provided playlists for years – you can find them on the site — and now we hope to fill your homes with scent from us as well.”
