Douglas Little, founder of D.L. & Co., calls himself a "modern alchemist and purveyor of curious goods," a title reflected in his luxurious, often Gothic, home decor designs. The candles, diffusers, and soaps in his signature collection come in sensual fragrances like Lady Rhubarb and Tincture of Winchester. Porcelain plates, silver apples, and embossed stationery make up his collection of Art Nouveau-inspired objects, and his Modern Alchemy collection features perfumes that are packaged in ribboned pocket watches.
A unique blend of soy, maple, and palm waxes allows D.L. & Co. candles to diffuse their fragrant oils without plumes of smoke. This collection centers around fruity scents, as well as woodsy, nature-reminiscent ones. And the packaging is far from ordinary.
From green fig to arugula clove to winesap apple, the scents on offer here, all food-inspired, smell delectable. They’re especially excellent for the foodies among us.
