Simple. Natural. Perfect. We designed the aftermodern.apothecary candle collection to engage experiences and aide mental health—a careful examination of the relationship between senses and emotions.

Our candles are small-batch, handmade, and hand-poured works of art. Small air bubbles may be visible; these don't affect the quality but indicate their artistry and craft.

Ethically sourced, our candles are made with all-natural soy wax and fragrances—vegan, kosher certified, and fair trade—unlike paraffin wax, a by-product of petroleum. Our containers can be reused or recycled; the same goes for our boxes and labels; made and printed by our local partners in Toronto.

It's eco-friendly, sustainable, and doesn't add to CO2 levels. Compared to paraffin wax, soy burns longer but produce 90% less soot; a very unhealthy by-product that slowly coats your space).

Soy wax handles fragrances differently than other waxes, so it's gentler; this means it builds up slowly, lasts 50% longer, and is less offensive.

How to get the best performance (strength and range of scent)? Easy, leave candles lit until a full wax pool is present. The scent is created when fragrance particles in the wax heat up and evaporate.

Handmade with love and sold by no one else. Be sure you buy an authentic candle, as there have been attempts to imitate us. If you're unsatisfied with your purchase, please contact us or Amazon; we'll make it right! We gladly accept returns and exchanges. No questions asked.

aftermodern.lab is an award-winning Toronto-based design studio. Like all other small businesses working through the pandemic—we've had to adapt and evolve. These candles represent light in our journey. We've strived to ensure our core values reflect in anything we craft.
