About the name
The emotional experience of scent, occurs in the right side of the brain, often referred to as the "psyche" [ sahy-kee ]. The psyche, another word for "soul", is the realm of emotion and imagination.
When olfactory stimulation engages the total brain, a mental dance begins between feelings, thoughts, associations, and desires.
Our brand's purpose is to bring this joyous experience to life through our candles and carefully curated fragrance collections.
Luxurious but not pretentious
Our approach to luxury is focused on the scent filling your space. It is layered, complex, sophisticated, and there is nothing phony or fake about it. Luxury, for our brand, is about high-quality materials, clean fragrances, natural waxes, and just a great burning candle. Our goal is to share this high-quality scent experience with you at an approachable price.
