About modern alchemy

Modern Alchemy founder Douglas Little uses his own version of sensory manipulation to concoct candles that transport users to the mysterious opium dens of 19th-century London and to the fragrant Corcovado mountain of modern-day Rio de Janeiro. Cordova leather, musk, pine needles, and black tea are among his palette of scents that he employs to recall real (and imagined) moments and places. All of Modern Alchemy’s long-burners, votives, and diffusers come beautifully packaged—some with satin ribbon and others in black boxes with gold script (reminiscent of Little’s signature line, D.L. & Co). The company’s stationery and other home items also have an air of the dark and lush, with a hint of Edwardian undertaker that’s so fashionable today.
