The strike of a match. The light of a candle. Scent that slowly rises. Dropping the needle on your favorite LP. Sweet Ritual.
All candles are hand-poured, tucked away in the country village of Grey Highlands, Ontario. With cotton wicks, reusable amber jars with a silver lid, and ingredients that won't give you headaches like those petroleum-based candles you find at the mall, Shy Wolf candles are a purchase you can feel good about.
8 oz candles are made from North American soy wax and burn for 40-50 hours. Hand-poured in Grey Highlands with fine, phthalate-free fragrances.
Made in Canada
COME TOGETHER: The smell of seeing loved ones come through your front door for the first time in far too long, a much-needed phone call to help patch the distance, memories of Saturday mornings waking up on the couch after a long night out, surrounded by groggy friends. A semisweet, comforting blend of brown sugar, warm spices and smoked myrrh fills the room with warmth and thoughts of nostalgia and hope for when we can one again say “come over; come home. You’ve been missed and you are loved.”
THE MOON: Eucalyptus, spearmint, rosemary. A spa-like scent that suggests illusion and deception, and therefore often suggests a time when something is not as it appears to be. A gentle reminder that you may be expecting the worst from your friends, family, and lovers when, in reality, they are devoted.
THE SUN: Citrus, tobacco, cedar. An invigorating scent that represents the sun's elements of vitality, warmth and fulfillment. The scent of the universe coming together and agreeing with your path.
TINY DANCER: Agave, cactus flower, rose. The scent of that perfume you wore on the road trip you took with your older sister after high school graduation. That feeling of your hand out the window, catching new breezes, Elton John on the AM dial.
SWEET EMOTION: Smoke, bourbon, vanilla. The scent of sneaking out to your best friend's older brother's campfire with a mickey of whiskey hidden in your boot. A memory of shouting over the crackling bonfire when Aerosmith comes on the pickup truck speaker, telling them to turn it up.
TAKE IT EASY: Smells like driving through your hometown block with the windows down in the middle of spring; like bunches of lilacs that you mom picked from the garden, with notes of cucumber and green tea.
GOLD DUST WOMAN: Smells like listening to your scratched rumours record in the middle of the night, surrounded by incense while you read your birth chart. supported with sultry notes of nutmeg and nag champa.
WHEEL OF FORTUNE: Smells of mystery, stepping into your truth and opening a new chapter with spicy vetiver and clove, balanced by a hint of clary sage.
THE MAGICIAN: Smells like manifestations coming to life; the path you’ve worked towards for so long appearing in front of you after late nights of filling notebooks with dreams and visions. Cinnamon and vetiver join with cypress to create a complex, spicy fragrance that will accompany you as you step into the aligned future you’ve created for yourself.
HIGH PRIESTESS: Lavender, sage, patchouli. A calming scent that suggests that it is time to retreat and reflect upon the situation and trust your inner instincts to guide you through it.
CIDER: Ripe apple, clove, nutmeg. The scent of flushed cheeks, seeing your breath, cozy scarves and watching the snow fall as you curl up on the couch with your favourite book and a hot cup of mulled cider.
MORE THAN A FEELING: Sweet blackberry, ripe raspberry. Smells like the summer between 11 and 12th grade, daydreaming about your crush, turning up the radio as munch on toast with the jam your grandma made with the berries you picked with your sister.
WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: Cannabis, wildflower, cedar. The scent of 70s basement debauchery and being passed your first joint. Listening to Zeppelin II on the record player and having it sound ten times better than when you heard it the first time around.
