Allison Kunath Collection
We collaborated on this collection of beautiful ceramic candles with California-based artist, Allison Kunath, known for her minimalist aesthetic, ethereal geometric watercolors, graceful figurative abstractions, and awe-inspiring murals. Kunath drew each figure with one single unbroken line "capturing the essence of feminine grace, strength, and beauty." Ten percent of the proceeds from the sale of each one of these candles will be donated to Planned Parenthood, Equality Now, and CHANGE (Center for Health and Gender Equity).
"My final designs depict women who feel proud, embodied, thoughtful, and expressed. My hope is that the images remind people of these traits within themselves, and the women around them."
Engraved on the bottom of each vessel is Allison's signature, so you are forever left with one of her works, even after the candle burns out. The fragrances we created for each candle are meant to calm and center, to uplift and inspire.
WOMAN NO. 1
A heart of soothing notes of lush currant and fig is anchored by a grounding background of amber and sandalwood.
WOMAN NO. 2
Comforting notes of hinoki cypress commingle with the warmth of sandalwood and cedar leaf, woody notes which evoke strength and character.
WOMAN NO. 3
A symphony of fresh and aromatic notes of sage, pine, and spruce bring to mind an early morning walk in nature—dewy, fresh, and green, recalling rebirth and renewal.

Ceramic Vessel Imported
Welcome to our world. I launched Brooklyn Candle Studio in 2013 with a mission to create candles with captivating scents, beautiful minimalist design, and the best ingredients. Essentially, everything we love about luxury candles, but at accessible prices. Our dreamy scents are inspired by nature and travel, moments and memories.
Each of our candles is wicked, poured, and labeled by hand from start to finish by our team of artisans in our studio space in Industry City, a hub of makers, designers, artists, and small businesses. All of our employees earn fair wages and benefits: paid time off and subsidized healthcare, dental, and vision.
We like to think of our wares as full sensory experiences—from the artful minimal packaging to the warm candlelight and delicate aromas that fill a room. So, go ahead, light one up.
About Our Founder－TAMARA MAYNE
Tamara Mayne is fragrance obsessive and designer who founded Brooklyn Candle Studio in 2013. A former art director in the fashion industry, she sought to create beautifully packaged natural candles at an affordable price point.
Originally from Virginia, Tamara studied Studio Art and Economics at the University of Virginia before moving to New York City. After working a series of jobs in finance and tech, her desire to work in a creative field led her to enroll in the Fashion Institute of Technology to study Graphic Design in 2009.
She was working as a designer and art director in 2012 when she decided to make candles as gifts for family with a candlemaking kit from her local craft store and became deeply obsessed with aromatherapy and the art of candlemaking. The rest, of course, is history.
