Our candles are made with phthalate-free fragrances, a blend of organic coconut and soy wax, a cotton wick, a printed glass, and recyclable packaging. Every candle is vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free and hand poured in Toronto.
In ancient times, glowing amber was washed ashore by the Baltic Sea. Gathered by mesmerized beachcombers, it travelled through the Bialowieza Forest, across the Tatra Mountains, and over fields of Lithuanian rue.
This collection is inspired by the stops along that historic route, with each candle in the collection featuring base notes of warm woodsy amber.
Burn on a stable, heat-safe surface away from drafts and flammable materials. Keep in sight, away from children and pets. During use, glass may become warm. Allow to cool before handling. Do not burn for more than 3 hours at a time. Keep wick centered and wax free of debris. Trim wick to 1/4" before each lighting. Discontinue use when 1/4" of wax remains.
Want to reuse your candle glass? Wipe out the remaining wax, use a spoon to pry out the wick base, and wash it out with soap and water.
I bought five different candles from Lohn on a whim just to try the company out and I'm SO pleased with all of them! Erde was my favourite scent; I'd say it's a masculine/neutral smelling candle - it's woodsy and grounding and definitely not too floral or citrusy. I burn this one in my living room and it's the perfect smell - not too aggressive, not too feminine, it's just perfect!
I've spent many years buying candles from Bath+Body Works and the candles from Lohn are in a completely different league - the Lohn fragrances are more refined, delicate and elegant and not quite as hard-hitting as the B+BW candles. I live in a small apartment and both the large size and the mini sized candles are able to fill a room with a really lovely fragrance. The scent level of all the candles is just right; I don't find myself being overwhelmed or headachey if I burn the candles for a couple hours. So far all five candles have been burning pretty evenly, without too much tunneling. Finally, the look of all of the candles, as well as the packaging, is really beautiful! Everything from the boxes they come in to the glass containers themselves are stunning and they'd make great gifts (or a nice treat for yourself!) I plan on re-using all of the glass containers with tea lights when I finish the candles.
I also wanted to add a note about the service I've received from Lohn as it's been fantastic! I've just received my second order and I've been really blown away and quite touched by the personalized and thoughtful details included in every order. Lohn is a great example of why supporting local small businesses is the way to go - you just don't get this level of care and quality from mega-brands and big box stores. I'll definitely be back for more!
It turns out, one year living in lockdown can take a toll on your mental health. Erde smells like escape. It conjures up memories of an evening in Tulum, sipping mezcal on the beach as the sun sets. I miss the olfactory experience of travelling (well, actually I miss everything to do with travelling) but I swear, this is the next best thing. Please create an Erde essential oil blend!
Very interesting and very beautiful smell! Warm and comforting.
