Northern Rose

We have never come across candles so perfectly named with their fragrance notes. The candle “Sundays” is a blend of soft vanilla crème, white orchid, lemon blossom and hints of sandalwood and amber. Even just reading that evokes the feeling of a quiet, slow moving Sunday morning. The softness and simplicity of the candle jars and beautiful labels will be the perfect addition to any room in your home.

The Flickery is a brand new Ottawa candle shop that just opened in 2023. These delicious smelling candles made with natural coconut soy wax have the cleverest sayings printed in a beautiful copper colour on each jar. These candles would make the perfect gift. We picked a few of our favourite sayings but let me tell you it wasn’t easy, they are all great – “I’m going to ugly cry at your wedding”, “smells like this meeting could have easily been an email”, “Dear mom, congrats I turned out great”.

Each of these stunning candles has the most amazing flower made from natural beeswax, perfectly placed on top of the candle around the wick. The flowers on top look so real we had to look through each photo and read the descriptions as we couldn’t believe they were made from beeswax. The attention to detail and the softness of each flower is breathtaking.
