The owner, Chantal, has always been candle obsessed, and decided to found BLKessence after too many failed candle buying attempts – the packaging was too dull or overstimulating, the scent was too overwhelming, the ingredients were toxic, or the vibe just wasn't right. Her Essentials Collection is a reflection of her wax pouring ethos – it's a blend of balanced scents that bring warmth and luxuriousness to any room.
