Stonewall Kitchen's Recently Acquired Brand, Village Candle, Launches New Gentlemen's Collection

Fragrances include Bergamot & Amber, Spiced Tobac & Honey, and Clean Musk & Vetiver

Village Candle's Gentlemen's Collection

Lead producer of fragranced candles, Maine-based, Village Candle, announced the launch of its new Gentlemen’s Collection. Featured in contemporary three-wick bowls with a black metal lid, this collection includes seven total fragrance options including Bergamot & Amber and Spiced Tobac & Honey. 

“Village Candle has been producing high-quality candles for over 25 years,” said Janine Somers, Vice President of Marketing and Direct to Consumer Sales of Stonewall Kitchen. “We’re known for using the most refined wax, the richest colors, and the finest fragranced oils available. Our new line celebrates clean elegance, modern sophistication and rich, memorable fragrances. Featured in our contemporary three-wick bowls, these candles blend trending scents such as juniper, leather, incense and honey with grounding, familiar notes like patchouli, fresh ocean water, balsam and vanilla.” 

The Gentlemen’s Collection is crafted with high-quality fragrances, food-grade paraffin wax and lead-free, cotton wicks for a clean, even burn and fragrance release. Manufactured, poured and hand-trimmed in Maine, each candle in this collection allows for an even burn time of up to 50 hours.

Continued Somers, “One of my personal favorites is the Hearthside Pine candle, a comforting fragrance of fresh pine, calming eucalyptus, and smokey cedar meant to inspire the ‘upta camp’ vibe. Designed for all to enjoy, this is a fun collection that is perfect for Father’s Day!” 

The Gentlemen’s Collection Includes: 

  • Moonlit Surf: fragrance notes of salty ocean spray, driftwood and sea moss.
  • Bergamot & Amber: fragrance notes of soft cashmere, fresh bergamot and ripe citrus.
  • Leather & Musk Noir: fragrance notes of white thyme, fresh bergamot, mineral water and Amalfi lemon.
  • Spiced Tobac & Honey: fragrance notes of tobacco leaves, spiced peppercorn and sweet spun honey.
  • Hearthside Pine: fragrance notes of fresh pine, eucalyptus and smokey cedar.  
  • Dark Berries & Cedar: fragrance notes of patchouli, cedar, rich plum and dark berries.
  • Clean Musk & Vetiver: fragrance notes of fresh basil, spiced anise, creamy tonka, soft citrus and lavender.
