Each of the four candles in the range is named after an intersection: Christopher + West 76, St Marks + First 85, Prince + Mercer 97, and McKibben + Bogart 03. St Marks + First 85 is inspired by ‘metallic, trash and vaudeville, incense, sweat, concrete, booze and vintage clothing stores’, and contains notes such as peach, aromatic incense, suede leather and pear liquor.

This is a great example of Scents of Place, a trend profiled in our recent Beauty Futures report.
