just arrived: mad et len

"the sense of smell is closely linked with memory, more so than any of our other senses. it’s the only circuity that passes straight into the brain’s center for memory and emotion without going through other areas of the brain first, which is why some scents you just can’t shake. for cheryl and i, Mad et Len candles were so intoxicating we couldn’t resist!" - xo maggie

Mad et Len candles are an ode to earthly elements. Housed in one-of-a-kind blackened iron vessels, complete with snuff lid, these candles are forged by local blacksmiths using ancient methods. They are handmade in a remote mountain village in the French Alps and poured in small batches.

Each Mad et Len scent is hand-formulated in a small village near Grasse, France by a chemist using undiluted flowers, wood, spices, and house-aged essential oils. Moss, mushroom, violet, soil, oak, eucalyptus, cypress, and mint are just some of the notes present in these intense, fragrant blends. These vegetable wax blends are then hand-poured into their iron vessels - we love the jars almost as much as the candles. They are equally beautiful and functional with or without wax.
