Luxury is a word that can easily be thrown around, but what qualifies a candle as luxury? There are four key factors and Haven and Flux checks every last box. 

THE COMPONENTS

Luxury candles should always have premium, non-toxic, and (ideally) eco-friendly components.

From the wick to the premium fragrance oil all of our ingredients are sourced with quality, wellness, and sustainability in mind. Our coconut soy wax provides a clean, long lasting, and visually appealing burn. We've sourced lead free, cotton wicks provide a safe and non-toxic burn every time. And lastly, our eco-friendly, reusable vessels will never distract from your home decor and can live in your space forever. 

THE FRAGRANCES

Luxury candles should incorporate non-toxic and fine fragrance oils. 

HOW TO IDENTIFY A LUXURY FRAGRANCE

There are a few key qualities that separate a regular fragrance and a fine fragrance. 

  • Luxury fragrances are curated using a global palette of raw materials with exotic and well-balanced accords to create a rich and luxurious character.
  • They're often multi-dimensional and sophisticated.
  • They incorporate unique ingredients sourced from around the world, made with essential oils, fine fragrance oils. Ones that are often not readily available to the mass-market.
  • They do NOT include toxins like phthalates that (with prolonged exposure) can be harmful to the liver, kidneys, lungs, and reproductive system.

Haven and Flux sources ONLY non-toxic, luxury fragrances. 

THE SUSTAINABILITY

Haven and Flux candles are designed to live on, even after they've been burned. Our minimally designed, reusable candle jar and lid can be repurposed as containers for your tiny treasures and daily necessities. Remove the wax and reuse the container for pens, makeup brushes, q-tips, cotton swabs, or anything else your heart desires.
