Stars Are Fire Votive Candles
Like the evolution of a memory retained, each Stars Are Fire candle vessel exists beyond its initial lifetime. Every piece of glassware is individually mouth-blown, each unique to the next, and created to be beautifully repurposed as drink-ware. Housed in a unique vintage parcel style made from 100% post-consumer soft cotton paper, its origami-folded base reveals a smattering of stars. The scent of each candle leaves its mark on the packaging and can be slipped in a drawer to emit a delicate fragrance.
Tears of Myrrh: Perfumed trees of antiquity weep bittersweet tears of precious resin. Dark tones of frankincense & myrrh are carried to the heavens on a floral crown of orange blossom and sweet freesia. Charred vetiver & altar incense rise into a soulful blend of holy smoke.
Bitter Orange and Lavender: Tart Seville Orange oil, marmalade, and orange bitters are beautifully blended with Barreme lavender. Finished with chalky soil and floral notes and a hint of mango extract.
Forest Floor Candle: Dappled sunlight in wild places where smells move through space and curl like smoke. An earth perfume with mushroom nuances, mists of rain soaked ferns, and the earthen smell of dark green moss covering the cool, damp dirt of the forest floor. A dreamlike atmosphere emulating the forest and all its beauty.

Our design collaborations with global artisans bring to life the timeless custom pieces into which we pour our bespoke fragrances, such as hand forged brass and mouth-blown glassware. The candle vessels are made in compliant factories by skillful artisans with the mission to create a second life through drink safe glassware or keepsake containers.
Margo Breznik, Founder + Creative Director of Tatine, launched her company in 2001 as a way to express her inspirations and impart her passion for creating interior atmospheres that inspire, deepen, and enhance your surroundings. Her designs and bespoke fragrance blends are an expression of what she is feeling, thinking, and inspired by at any given time. Drawing solely on music which, to Margo, is the highest of all art forms, she also culls inspiration from her travels, hoping to impart those small magic moments that traveling brings into our lives. She is also influenced by interior design and creating inspiring atmospheres where people immediately feel at ease, passing that special feeling on through Tatine's products.
