Fabulous but pricey

1/26/2015 by Amy

fabulous scent. I believe if the price was cut by $10 a candle more people would take a chance on ordering.At 3 inches by 2 inches(medium size) It is a bit small for the price.


Smell is great

Love the smell. Smaller jar than I expected. No instructions to tell it can be used as body-butter. Would order again.


Unique item

I purchased this as a hostess gift. Nice packaging but no linen bag that was mentioned in other reviews. But that was not a problem. The recipient was impressed at something "so unique and clever". She said she keeps the candle in her kitchen and enjoys using the moisturizer. Maybe she's just being polite? I will have to buy one for myself in order to give a better review.
So far, it smells lovely and looks good, too.

I love the fragrance of this candle! It was purchased as a gift, but okay, I admit I took a tiny swipe and dabbed it on my wrists. It is a lovely scent, and I am sorry to say I did not check later to see if it has staying power. It is wrapped now. I may need to order another for myself!

Disappointed about the size

12/9/2013 by Filomena

The scents are lovely but the size of a Medium is TINY! The medium is more of a Small and at $28, they are not worth it. I am disappointed as these were to be gifts and now I have to go buy something else to add to it. The size is underwhelming and disappointing. If these were under $20 I would say they were worth it. Unfortunately, I purchased 3...

The Objects with Purpose Story

Objects with Purpose - Natural, Wearable Candle

Awaken the Senses

Ianthe Mauro’s love for candles dates back to her school days in Boston in the 1970s, when her teacher would light a candle each day and encourage students to focus on the beauty and strength of its flame. Ianthe continued to make candles a part of her daily life, but she worried about the toxic contents of some varieties. She was inspired to create her own line of nontoxic candles, with a unique twist: Ianthe’s candles are designed to be worn.

Each of her candles is hand-poured with a clean-burning wax that contains organic coconut, apricot, and shea butters, along with a proprietary blend of
essential oils for fragrance. The wax burns at a low temperature, so you can use it as soothing body butter when it’s warm (perfect for moisturizing and massages) and a solid perfume when it’s cool. Her scents are sophisticated and appealing, including the soothing Fight or Flight, laced with jasmine and vanilla; vibrant Dahlia, with rose and lychee; Gifted, which combines white tea, fig, and tobacco in an alluring blend; and Archetype Rising, a meld of peony, cucumber, and firewood. All of the elements—from the organic butters, essential oils, and cotton wicks to the glass containers and reusable muslin packaging—come from U.S. suppliers.

We’re accustomed to lighting candles to add ambiance to a room. Ianthe’s company, Objects With Purpose, takes the candle-lighting experience even further. You can light a candle, massage the warm wax into your skin, and enjoy the scent throughout the day. For yourself or someone special, it’s a thoughtful, positive gift for the senses.
