This Bright Black Summer Scent series pays tribute to the complex intersections of Blackness and the outdoors. The series offers three candles–Tall Grass, Earthseed, and The Stoop–that tell unique, yet intertwined stories about rural and urban environments; the sustainability of Black farmers and local food systems; collective land ownership and stewardship; environmental justice; and community resilience.
These candles represent reimagined notions of what outdoor candles could or should be, highlighting lemongrass instead of the typical citronella and showcasing masterful blends that conjure up fresh air, cookouts, corner stores and days spent in the garden.
