Wary Meyers Candles

One of our favorite designing couples – John and Linda Meyers, the creative duo behind Wary Meyers Decorative Arts, a multifaceted creative studio based in Portland, Maine – just launched a new line of hand-blended scented candles. Like everything the Wary Meyers team does these candles are just a wee bit off-beat. The office favorite is Fruity Fruits, a scent inspired by “the yummy smell of fruity breakfast cereal melting in a bowl of farm-fresh milk” – translation: It smells like FRUIT LOOPS! Other scents are Coco Nuit a coconut, suntan oil, and cannabis blend; Milky Way a cosmic melange of cream and warm leche, and Sunshine, a dandelion, heliotrope, and grass scent. Each glass jar is gold-leafed by John, so no two are exactly alike. The typeface on the packaging was designed by Linda and is set amongst John watercolors. Purchase and check out all the scents here. –Amy
