Lost and Found: Secret Lentil Very Good Candle
Lost and Found. No, not that one. Not: your old hat, tucked into a cardboard box in the corner of someone’s office. Lost and found in the bigger sense: the end of a journey, physical or spiritual. Arriving at a destination. Finding a place, a belonging. A focal point. A fresh locale. Lost, then found.
(Sure, some people only sell candles online that are easy to describe, but I only carry scents I love, and they are often more complex. Please stick with me.)
Lost And Found is lush, robust, kind of fat and buttery, but not sweet. It has a strong base note rooted in tonka, with some amber, blended with coriander, vanilla and the fresh note of lemon, but none of these overpowers the other. Yes there are spices, but it's not spicy in the ‘tangy’ sense. It’s all about warmth and fullness — atmospheric and welcoming.
Secret Lentil Very Good Candles are made from soy wax, with lead-free cotton wicks, phthalate-free fragrance oils, and no dyes. They are a satisfyingly big 8 ounce size (see the photo with my pasty hand for comparison) and come in a lidded aluminum tin. Expect a 55 to 60 hour burn time. They are hand-poured in small batches just for Secret Lentil in Syracuse, New York.
