Le Labo Concrete Candle
Grasse- and New York-based Le Labo is a company that specializes in simple, modern scents and designs that make a statement. Their latest, the Santal 26 Concrete Candle, isn’t your standard run-of-the-mill candle. It’s GMO-free, vegan, and cruelty-free. Each concrete shell is handcrafted in California before hand-pouring Mississippi. The smooth, smoky, leathery scent it dissipates is formulated using a mix of ingredients blended in 100% soy wax, and burns for over 150 hours with proper maintenance. And while the same scent can be had at a fraction of the cost in glass, there’s something about concrete that might just have us consider dropping half a month’s rent on a candle.
