‘Model S22’ Candle by Werner Stoff & Hans Nagel for Stoff Nagel

The S22s, as they’re commonly referred to among the candle elite, are peak quality. They’re also made in Germany with fully refined paraffin wax which produce a slow, clean burn.

‘Sphere’ Candle by Jiho Yun
Inspired by vintage candles from Northern Europe, the footed candles are designed in New Zealand and hand-poured in Seoul, South Korea. A whopping 40 hours burn time make this 100 per cent beeswax and cotton-wicked cheerful character a no-brain buy.
