The Saison Des Fêtes Collection or "Holiday Season" Collection was created to honor the sacred days marking the holiday season. Each candle has a unique affirmation corresponding to the natural energy of the holiday it marks.
Candlemas - Sweet Butter Crepe
Candlemas is a cross-quarter day around February 2nd in the Northern Hempisphere, and the mid-point between two seasonal changes - Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. Candlemas is almost universally celebrated with the lighting of a candle, making it the first candle in our six-part Saison Des Fêtes or "Holiday Season" collection. Historically, Candlemas was celebrated with grain-based foods such as crepes, pancakes and oat cakes. Present-day France celebrates by making crepes, which are a symbol of prosperity for the coming year, thus Candlemas is scented with sweet, buttery crepe.
Spring Equinox - Freesia
Delicate freesia is one of the most fragrant blooms of Spring. Freesia is synonymous with friendship in the Language of Flowers making it a meaningful gift to enjoy all season long. Spring Equinox marks the first day of Spring which is usually around March 21st in the Northern Hemisphere. Equinox means “equal night” and on the equinox, night and day are nearly exactly the same length. Spring Equinox signifies nature’s shift from Winter’s dormancy to the awakening of Spring.
Summer Solstice - Ripe Strawberry
According to the Farmer’s Almanac, June’s full moon was named “Strawberry Moon” by Native Americans in honor of the short season in which strawberries are harvested. Thus, our Summer Solstice candle is aptly scented with juicy, ripe strawberries dipped in cool, sweet cream. The Summer Solstice, typically on June 21st, marks the longest day of the year and heralds the leisurely warm days of summer.
