Originally commissioned by the North Carolina Museum of Art to celebrate two time Academy Award-winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter's exhibit with the same name, our AFROFUTURISM candle is a scent declaration of reimagined Black futures. Inspired by trees from West Africa, South and East Africa and the Caribbean, this scent design embodies our interconnectedness, nourishes the power of continued hopefulness and fortifies the notion that a dream is only utopian until you make it reality. A mystical blend of roots, limbs and leaves from across the Black Diaspora, AFROFUTURISM stands firmly in the wisdom of our ancestors and clears paths for generations to come.
Scent Notes: Baobab, Marula and Coconut Palm
Candle Details: Each 6oz Black, matte vessel contains 4.75 ounces of wax and custom-blended fragrance, along with sleek wooden wicks. 50-60 hours of burn time each. NOTE: our standard candles are packaged in 10oz vessels, however AFROFUTURISM is packed in a slightly smaller, 6oz vessel.
