a refreshing reinvention of a traditionally dark + spicy aroma inspired by bay rum.
inspired by the old world bay rum first used by sailors traveling through the caribbean and later popularized in barbershops, dark rum is a refreshing reinvention of a traditionally dark and spicy aroma. sweetened with ripe plum and crisp bergamot, notes of leather, rum and creamy milk are blended into an intoxicating mix. both alluringly warm and fresh, this scent captures the essence of long days spent in the tropical sun and late nights with friends. upon lighting, dark rum leaves a deep and indelible longing for all those places we’ve been – as well as those we’ve yet to visit.

shipping. due to high temperatures we discourage shipping candles to warmer regions during the summer. we will not be able to replace any candles damaged by melting in transit.

middle. leather, rum + vanilla.

trim wick to ¼” (0.6 cm) prior to each lighting. place on heat-resistant, non-flammable surface. keep away from drafts and walls. burn at least 2-3 hours for first use, then no more than 3 hours at a time. discontinue use when ½” (1.3 cm) of wax remains.
caution. never leave unattended. burn within sight. keep away from flammable items. keep out of reach of children and pets.
tips from Matthew + Andrew. our candles have such a clean burn that the glasses are reusable.
