The Grace Candle is titled after Kehinde Wiley's exhibition An Economy of Grace, the artist's first-ever series dedicated to female subjects which celebrates the strength and beauty of Black femininity. This limited edition candle is inspired by Wiley's portrait Dacia Carter II (2012) which features model Dacia Carter against a backdrop of rich greenery and luscious pink flowers. It offers an exquisite blend of woody, green fig fragrance that has been mixed with a base of cedar wood and pink peppercorn to produce a complex and harmonious scent.
