Designs On— Packaging
Lights are fast. Candles are slow. Slower even are these embedded-scent candles. Like wooing a lover, spear fishing, or standing in line at the D.M.V., these little wax luminaries teach the principle of patience.
This concept celebrates the notion of waiting. Of anticipation. Of delayed gratification. The scented wax capsule is visible, right out of the box, but inaccessible for a period of ‘burn time.’ Only hints of the scent can be detected until the fragrance center is breached by light, over time. When the scent expires, it leaves behind only a clear candle and a string of cherished memories.
