Tonka Candle 6.5 oz
Dwell in scent with Commodity Home. Each candle embodies a unique scent signature that infuses the space we inhabit with light, warmth and the air of something new.
Commodity Tonka is at first dark and mysterious, yet this floral woody features an unexpected set of gourmand notes; smoky whiskey, leather and tobacco meet dry cocoa, caramel and coffee. It's elegant and sensual, while at the same time exotic and addictive.
This soy based candle contains sustainably sourced tonka bean harvested from the Amazonian forest in Venezuela.
Commodity candles are hand poured with expert precision. They combine naturally derived soy based wax with premium fragrances expertly crafted using natures finest commodities. The result: a luxurious home fragrance with a beautiful, warm burn. Burn time: 60 hours.
When he was young and living in his native France, Guillaume often wondered why schools did not teach children about the “alphabet” of fragrance, given the country’s rich perfume heritage. He decided to cultivate his own, and over the past two decades has mastered the art of perfumery. His sensitivity to scents goes hand in hand with an appreciation for art and music, and the ability to find beauty in a variety of contexts: the smoky taste of whiskey; the rich color of Japanese ink; or the melodic angularities of jazz. As a professional perfumer and jazz pianist, he synthesizes his diverse inspirations in art, music and beyond into a style that is both passionate and truly original.
“Rhythm and music inspire and help me create perfumes and play with sustainable raw materials to bring something different and meaningful to a fragrance. I love to play the piano, and the melodic, syncopated rhythmic patterns of jazz awaken my very personal and provocative style.”
