This is a collection of candles that celebrate Pittsburgh. These are the perfect candles to celebrate the best parts of the city, with a clean, simple aesthetic they will go in any space. I chose scents that are beautiful year round and will compliment the look and feel of your home – whether it’s a downtown loft or a home in the suburbs.
Also, great as gifts for those who love Pittsburgh as much as you do! Here are the scents and a little behind each candle.
Good Neighbor –
This candle is a subtle nod to one of our most beloved Pittsburghers, Fred Rogers. We thought the red trolley of the incline was the perfect artwork for this candle. The scent is a cedarwood vanilla, not sticky sweet vanilla but a fantastic year-round vanilla that brings comfort and warmth. Cedarwood has a delightfully earthy tone and a strong woody base. We’ve blended it with a classic vanilla and a touch of sweetness to create a fragrance that is both warm and sophisticated. Perhaps your neighbor would like one as well?
The Strip –
The Strip, what a fun place to explore, to eat, to shop! This candle celebrates the Strip and all the fun that goes on there. The candle has a bubbly citrus fragrance. Mandarin orange and champagne blend with mimosa blossoms and a touch of coconut. Warm amber, vanilla, and sandalwood round out this citrus sensation. Orange essential oil intensifies the juicy scent of freshly squeezed mandarin oranges. It’s a fresh, lovely scent to help you remember your Saturday stroll along the Strip.
Yellow Bridges –
What could be more perfect than a candle with a bridge on it? Yellow bridges are always what comes to mind when I think of Pittsburgh. This candle is light and airy (like being on a bridge?!) a lush, botanical fragrance with a touch of powder and sandalwood in the base provide a beautiful balance to the floral bouquet.
Yeah, we couldn’t resist putting Yinzer on a candle. Where else do they say such a ridiculous word?! Nowhere but Pittsburgh! We chose the Point for the artwork on this candle, the place where all three rivers meet and the foundation of the city – just like all the Yinzers out there. Don’t worry though, this candle smells like a Yinzer fresh out of the shower! A sweet and sultry fusion of mandarin, jasmine, and rich amber with undertones of sandalwood and musk – it’s a beautiful scent that will make your home smell wonderful!
Steel City –
You know the sight when you come around the corner from the freeway and see the skyline – it takes your breath away! That’s what we were capturing in this candle, the skyline reflected in the river makes you feel like you just arrived home. The scent is a beautiful one, making you think of Spring and Summer all year long (even in the dead of winter). Green floral notes with a heart of fig and jasmine. Base notes of light musk, wood, and moss balance out this beautiful fragrance.
