  • August & Piers Eccentric candle

    August & Piers is a newly-launched candle brand which uses personality types as inspiration to create beguiling scents. 

    They describe the eccentric candle, for example, as a “beautifully bizarre blend” of blood orange and orange blossom, coffee, maple syrup and bourbon. We think it sounds good enough to eat.
