Thompson Ferrier Candles for Fall
September 17, 2012 | At Home
Westhamptonites Pauline Dana and Raffi Ar slanian developed Thompson Ferrier, a fresh label of scented candles and diffusers; the pair even patented the sculptural glass vessels that contain their candles. “We literally started from the ground up,” says Arslanian. “Candles usually sit dormant, so most of the time, they are just pieces of glass.” But Thompson Ferrier candles come in decorative glass vessels, not basic stock glass.
Dana and Arslanian spent four years developing fragrances, and Thompson Ferrier candles feature 17 to 27 layers of essential oils, rather than the one or two notes of fragrance found in most candles. Variations include Rhubarb Anise with strawberry, sugar cane, black licorice, and raspberry hints, and Tabac Rose with crystal ginger, tobacco leaf, and sweet orange aromas ($58 each).
