All is not rosy in the luxurious world of scented candles. While providing a lovely incandescent light and perfuming the air, your candle could also be emitting toxic chemicals like toluene and benzene, which can irritate the lungs. This is because most bougie parfumée are made of paraffin wax—a petroleum byproduct which releases carcinogenic soot when burned.
To create a safer alternative, Rodrigo Garcia Alvarez set out to produce Amen, a collection of non-toxic, vegan wax candles that are as sustainable as they are sumptuous. The candles are hand-made in Grasse, France which has long been considered the world's capital of fragrance—it's where Coco Chanel sourced her jasmine and rose blooms for her historic No. 5 and where, each spring, the region’s rolling hills appear ablaze in lavender. "We have been really lucky that the family, who makes each candle by hand with a traditional French savoir-faire, has been curious and happy to incorporate best practices of sustainability," says Garcia Alvarez. And the chicness doesn't stop there: The candle’s vessel is porcelain and made in the storied porcelain village of Limoges, which has been crafting ceramics since the late 18th century.
As for the fragrances, the Uruguay-born Garcia Alvarez fully embraced aromatherapy, producing 7 scents, one for each of the chakras. At present, there are three scents (Vetiver, Roses, and Jazmin), which were developed in collaboration with renowned yoga studios and gurus like Rasa Yoga in Paris, Guru Jagat in Los Angeles, and Simrat Kaur in Rio de Janeiro. Of his favorite scent, Garcia Alvarez cites Vetiver: the candle is dedicated to the root chakra because of the plant's earthy notes. Seems he’s not the only one; "It sold out on our website just by word of mouth!" he says.
