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.
Elevated fragrances that'll transform your room (and your mood)

The virtues of these artisanal candles and diffusers go far beyond their rare essences and patented blend of soy, maple, and palm waxes—they are keepsakes, too. Just look at their lids: some boast handcrafted, gold-plated toppers, while others are encrusted with 2,500 Swarovski crystals. The seasonal tealights come in playful gothic motifs like skulls or spiders. And don’t miss the metal pocket watches, which feature an ambrosial concoction of tuberose, truffle, and musk.
