Max Benjamin Italian Apothecary Candles

Our signature scent. Inspired by the evocative blended recipes and fragrance of a Florentine apothecary from a bygone era. Spicy top notes lead to a musky heart of patchouli and clove, with a woody base of amber and sandalwood.

Life uplifted.

Our scented candles are made from 100% natural wax and our wicks are made from cotton to produce a clean soot free burn. Each candle is hand poured in Enniskerry and each of our one wick candles have a minimum burn time of 50 hours.

Exploring the ancient streets of Florence inspired us to create this fragrance. Comforting spicy top notes with a musky heart of patchouli and clove leading to a woody base of amber and sandalwood.
