Pagua Bay Fragrance Luxury Beeswax Candle
Our first scent, Pagua Bay, is inspired by the small island nation of Dominica in the West Indies. The fragrance combines the essence of the local bay leaf with native spices, florals, and woods – providing a breathtaking, sensory journey where treetops meet the ocean. If you're fragrance curious, you're welcome to purchase a Scent Coin and experience Pagua Bay at home before committing to a candle. A few days after your Scent Coin arrives, we will email you a code to apply the cost of the Scent Coin to a candle purchase and receive $20.00 off the candle price.
For our wax, we use pure Dominican beeswax and blend it with sustainable soy wax and coconut oil. Once we perfect the wax blend, we add high-quality, phthalate-free fragrance oil to create a slow-burning blend.
The Isle de Nature candle vessel is made to last forever. No two pieces are alike. Each vessel is handmade in the USA using translucent clay. When lit, the candle gently illuminates from within to reveal the delicate honeycomb pattern, a masterfully crafted homage to honeybees created by world-renowned designer Joe Doucet.
Every purchase of Isle de Nature helps us build more hives in Dominica, the Caribbean island that inspired our scent where we get our beeswax.
