The official Dia de los Muertos in Mexico is on November 1st-2nd, 2022 - but don't let that stop you. Plenty of time to squeeze off a practice round then grab another for the day.

Don't be surprised if someone at home comes to see if somethings on fire when this is lit! When designing this fragrance, we wanted to mimic the actual festival in Mexico. We wanted the smell of bonfires, delicate floral notes, citrus notes from the garnish on the tequilas, and amber to represent this wisdom of the elders and give courage to face death head on as they do... and we think we nailed it. The accord is strange but very very interesting. We chose this stunning red semi-opaque with a gold dipped base glassware for the brightness factor, to enhance the silouettes of the items decorating the glassware... but the final decoration is left for you.
The gold oval plaque is intentionally blank, so you can use the template provided to cut out a photo of a loved one that recently passed, and dedicate your candle to them. If you reply to us via the order confirmation email and attach a digital photo of who you want to honor we will print it and apply it to the candle for you before we ship it.
"To live in the hearts that we leave behind is not to die, but to live eternally."
- Elise Margaritis
Mexico's Day of the Dead is less of a mourning and more a joyful celebration where family and friends gather to pay respects to loved ones who've died. Funny anecdotes are about them and they're honoured via home altars (ofrendas) filled with their favorite foods and drinks, decorative skulls (calaveras) and marigolds (cempazúchitl). They also visit their graves with these items as gifts.
