Penn Chemists

I recently went on a buying trip and one of my vendors where I actually found the fun sculptural cartwheels which are on the Gina Bowhill site was also selling these fabulous Penn Candles. This is a wonderful company which has brought back to life an 1898 chemist in Pennsylvania who specialized at the time in home-made tonics, elixirs and scented candles which proclaimed to be a cure!

Today they have made some amazing scents inspired by the complex recipes of the past with exotic and wonderful fragrances which you must try! These smells are fresh, distinct and extremely clean and personally more sophisticated than the sweet fragrances you most often find. The candle themselves are pure, made from natural soy, coconut and organic beeswax enabling them to burn for a long time.

The colors of the jars in the Pharmacy Collection which I particularly adore, were inspired by the 19th century pharmacy bottles and feature a gold branded label. They look fabulous anywhere you put them and slip into any style of home. The Limited Edition trio are a joyous trio in gold branded holiday colored vessels. Jakarta for example is a blend of cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and blood orange. Each of these three scents were made specifically to reflect the joy and excitement of the holiday season.

 Finally there is the wonderful detailed gift box which they come packed in wrapped with ribbon and a complimentary box of matches producing the perfect gift which I would just love to receive!
