Tatine was founded in 2001 by owner and creative director Margaret Breznik in Chicago, Illinois, where each candle is still crafted by hand to this day. Each candle is made from high quality soy wax housed in an individually mouth-blown glass vessel that can be repurposed as drinkware, and is packaged in a vintage parcel made of 100% post-consumer cotton paper.
The Stars Are Fire fragrance line is meant to evoke soft fragrant fires for after dark or dreamy afternoons. Our current collection of scents include:
Forest Floor-An earthy perfume with mushroom nuances, mists of rain soaked ferns, and the earthen smell of dark green moss covering the cool, damp dirt of the forest floor.
Holy Basil- Dark green herbal notes blended with wild meadow grasses, cannabis, and sacred basil. Drops of dark violet oil, anise, and garden mint round out top notes of Absinthe, clove buds, and green vine tomato.
Pine- Woody evergreen notes blended with balsam oil. A sweet forest aroma with both crisp and warm resinous notes. An aroma for all seasons.
Spirit House- An uplifting blend of fire and spice with a vibrant background of citrus orange, mandarin, and coriander wrapped in a garland of violets and rose hips. A backdrop of lemongrass and wild lime leaves add tang to pimento and dried chilies. An ancient blend of vetiver and proprietary mah kwan pepper from Thailand have a cheerful effect on your mood and atmosphere.
Tears of Myrrh- Perfumed trees of antiquity weep bittersweet tears of precious resin. Dark tones of frankincense & myrrh are carried to the heavens on a floral crown of orange blossom and sweet freesia. Charred vetiver & altar incense rise into a soulful blend of holy smoke.
Temple of Leaves- A combination of smoky, woody, and dry elements blended with hinoki, Japanese cypress, and sustainably harvested sandalwood. Middle notes of evergreen, musk, and patchouli with woody and camphorous elements conjure the earthy and masculine. A spiritual aroma of a temple garden laden with golden autumn leaves.
Woodsmoke- The mystical aroma of an autumnal fire burning as smoke gently drifts across the room. A sweet, woody perfume of cedarwood, fir balsam, and fragrant forest resins with kindling and natural clove oils.
Fig- An herbaceous aroma with boozy dried fruits, sweet sunburnt red fruit, and mulberry. Woody crushed fig tree leaves infused with aromatic greens.
Hashish- High notes of gummy ashtray resins fall into embers of fire and ash. Tart green rhubarb and peppery citrus accords weave into jammy notes of cassis. Hindu buds and violets emerge and melt into dark patchouli, saffron, and the smell of smoky woody guitars.
