TATINE PETITE 3OZ BLACK WAX CANDLE | TEARS OF MYRRH
Tears and Perfume
According to Greek Mythology, the aromatic exudings of the myrrh tree are from Myrrha's tears, the subject of the most famous work (now lost) of the poet Helvius Cinna. This gum resin tends to be burned to exude aromas of peacefulness and protection on many levels.
Creating this scent memory for our home rituals and ceremonies, we formulated Tears of Myrrh to exude the scent of incense inside Roman Basilicas visited on trips to Italy. This ancient and beautifully aromatic experience is a tradition that dates back thousands of years.
Into the Mystic
Perfumed trees of antiquity weep bittersweet tears of precious resin. Dark tones of frankincense & myrrh are carried to the heavens on a floral crown of orange blossom and sweet freesia. Charred vetiver & altar incense rise into a soulful blend of holy smoke.
PETITE 3 OUNCE BLACK WAX
- up to 16 hours of a delicate fragrant atmosphere when burned properly.
- Our petite candles are tinted black with ingredients extracted from vegetable oils that are both Prop65 and REACH compliant.
- Inky black when lit, a light grey crystallization or texture may appear on the unlit candle surface. This is considered a unique part of working with natural colorants.
ABOUT MARGO BREZNIK, FOUNDER AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF TATINE
Margo Breznik, Founder + Creative Director of Tatine, launched her company in 2001 as a way to express her inspirations and impart her passion for creating interior atmospheres that inspire, deepen, and enhance your surroundings. Her designs and bespoke fragrance blends are an expression of what she is feeling, thinking, and inspired by at any given time.
Drawing solely on music which, to Margo, is the highest of all art forms, she also culls inspiration from her travels, hoping to impart those small magic moments that traveling brings into our lives. She is also influenced by interior design and creating inspiring atmospheres where people immediately feel at ease, passing that special feeling on through Tatine's products. Inspiration can come from anywhere, be it haute couture, a runway show, a song lyric, a well designed menu, or a moment in time.
Margo creates from a personal and emotional place. As Tatine celebrates 20 years, Margo continues to place meaning in the small details, slow design, hand craftsmanship, and imparting soul through each piece. Everything is created to impart wonder, a sense of quality, and the quiet but evocative message of the handmade.
THE POETRY OF OBJECTS
Small is good.
Timelessness rather than trend.
Inspired by the dreams Margo first envisioned for her company, she strives to make products that go a little deeper and give a little more. Made slowly by hand every day, with soul and subtle detail. Our design collaborations with global artisans bring to life the timeless custom pieces into which we pour our bespoke fragrances, such as hand forged brass and mouth-blown glassware. The candle vessels are made in compliant factories by skillful artisans with the mission to create a second life through drink safe glassware or keepsake containers. These things mean a lot to our mission, which is to impart a quiet joy and timeless, meaningful quality of handcrafted wares. The studio utilizes recycled and FSC-certified paper stocks as much as possible in both our product packaging and shipping materials in order to make strides towards protecting our planet. The company has evolved from a cottage industry to a global brand while retaining the same creative values and attention to detail of "making things" as when it first began in 2001.
TATINE DESIGN + MANUFACTURING STUDIO
Tatine is a design + manufacturing studio housed in the former Hammond Organ Factory in Chicago, where our tight-knit team puts a personal stamp on handcrafted, poetic objects. Margo took her passion for interior design and transformed a raw, window-lined industrial space into a production studio and office. The buildout resulted in an inspired studio environment where creative ideas can flow. It was important to her for the team to be in an atmosphere that reflects their contribution in a beautiful way. Filled with light, plants, fresh air, fragrance, and streaming rock ’n’ roll, it’s a bridge between life and work that emulates the Tatine aesthetic.
Made with all of our hearts in our Chicago studio, enriching life with fragrance.
