Living in NYC, greenery is few and far between. (It is, after all, the concrete jungle.) And I can’t speak for the entire city, but every now and then, I like to trade in the aromas of an overpopulated urban environment for all that resides in the midst of Mother Nature. Finding refuge in Maak Lab, the Oregon-based shop is taking its natural scents from the Pacific Northwest and packaging them for all to enjoy. Its White Cedar Candle mixes sweet and creamy wood with spikes of honey and ginger for a clean, earthy fragrance. Housed in hand-thrown ceramic sink cups made by Portland company Mazama, the candle can be bought HERE.
