A great smelling candle for a wonderful cause

I gave this candle as gift to my son and future daughter n law as they recently moved to NY. They loved the candle, packaging and New York themed message of resilience

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.

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.
