We’re over the moon excited to finally share the limited-edition candle collection that we designed with the fabulous Whitney Port! Our design team has been hard at work over the past few months to bring Whitney’s vision to life—working hand in hand with Elizabeth Eisenstein of ZZIEE Ceramics to create the gorgeous containers and MacMaddies to perfect each of the three candles’ fragrances.
Each candle is inspired by and named for a place close to Whitney’s heart—Ozark, Tahquitz, and Teton, with a unique container that’s thrown and glazed by hand (meaning each candle is truly one-of-a-kind and made with love!).
The Favor x Whitney Port Collection
Ozark’s matte red clay container features a hand-carved sun face illustrated by Whitney, and features notes of teakwood, citrus and sea salt, with middle notes of cedar, plum, leather and lavender, on a base of oakmoss, sandalwood, amber, and patchouli.
Tahquitz features a soft, cylindrical container glazed in a glossy, speckled peach hue, with notes of teakwood, citrus and sea salt, middle notes of cedar, plum, and leather, and a base of sandalwood, amber and patchouli.
Teton is an orb-shaped vessel made of white clay dipped in a unique crawl glaze, which produces individual beads when fired in the kiln. Teton’s scent includes top notes of jasmine and teakwood, middle notes of leather, sandalwood, patchouli and Tonka bean, and base notes of amber, patchouli and dark musk.
“After completing this project, I learned something about myself that was a really big deal. I’m a designer. Whether it's clothes, candles or accessorizing a coffee table, I’m most fulfilled, most ME when I am being creative,” said Whitney.
“Designing these candles cemented this idea in my brain, and will stay with me for the rest of my life. I hope they do well; I hope other people like them and buy them, but this project has already been a success for me.”
A portion of all sales will be donated to The Loveland Foundation, which brings opportunity, healing and empowerment to communities of color, especially Black women and girls, through collaborative resources and initiatives.
