Acts of Resilience


This special limited-edition winter candle is in partnership with NYC’s largest volunteer organization, New York Cares.

Following 2020, New York Cares is celebrating our collective resilience with their winter message: Acts of Resilience. Your act in purchasing this candle supports New York Cares’ efforts toward supporting NYC’s most vulnerable and underserved communities across the issues of hunger, homelessness, social injustices and educational inequities.

100% of the profits of this limited-edition winter candle will go directly to New York Cares.

💰 Our goal is to raise $5,000 (and we‘re halfway there)!

This all-natural coconut wax blend candle is generously scented with notes of apple, tree sap and spice—inspired by the essence of a New York winter. ❄️

This candle will not include our signature augmented reality experience, but many of its multisensorial features remain! Hear it crackle; see it shimmer; smell its unique holiday scent—which we‘re calling Big Apple Spice! 🍎

  • 55+ hours of clean burn time
  • Durable glassware can be upcycled
  • Dual wooden wicks crackle like a tiny campfire
  • Sustainable & all natural coconut wax blend
  • Golden shimmer in wax for an added sensorial effect

    Packed with soul and authenticity

    The limited edition New York Cares candle was packed with soul and authenticity. It was incredible to receive such a high quality product that directly translated to the charitable action of buying a brand new winter coat for a New Yorker. I also enjoy other high end candles like Le Labo. But for me, there is something about buying high end candles from a native New Yorker and supporting the city I love all in one fell swoop. It does smell incredible as well.

    Great fragrance, relaxing light

    I was happy to support New York Cares and in the process discovered Spoken Flames. I also purchased a Focused candle. Both smell great and burn beautifully. Pleased with my purchase.

    Love this candle! The scent is natural, not overpowering. A special tribute to New York City.

    The entire experience of these candles has been incredible. From the packaging to the sound, to the aroma... I mean, the candle literally shimmers! It shimmers! there are a lot of candles out there, but none like these. New essential items in our house.
