If bottomless brunch is kinda your thing and your cocktail-hour savvy is the stuff of legends, have we got a home find for you. Wax Cabin Candle Co. has created boozy candles you can burn in your home, no reservation (or even pants) required. The soy candles come in the scents of all of our favorite cocktails including Gin and Tonic, French 75, and Peach Bellini, as well as all-around winner Brunch. It’s like a bottomless buffet of day drinking with no hangover. (The candles also come in nonalcoholic scents like Sweet Mornings and Cozy Cabin.)
“Wax Cabin Candle explores unique, playful and high-end cocktails and brings them to soy life,” founder Jennifer Gunn told Brit + Co. “We give special attention to color and design with our foiled labels. We want our candles to not only be smelled throughout your house, but seen.”
Gunn, a graphic designer, makes the candles in her log cabin in Mendham, New Jersey, where she lives with her husband, daughter, and dog. (Can you say quaint?) She says her background in visual arts plus a restless mind and love for candles (and wine) spurred creation of the company. “I’ve always loved my log cabin but wanted to add colorful and feminine design notes to it,” she says. “I started to think about how I could make rustic décor without having to make it brown or green with wood or deer antler accents. I experimented with candles, scents, and labels and after obsessing for weeks I felt the most authentic name for my candle line would be Wax Cabin.”
Brunch has consistently been a best seller since the company launched in 2016, because… well, brunch. French 75 and Rosie Rosé are strong seconds though. As for Dunn, she says her favorite winter scent is Cozy Cabin, while she’s all about Gin + Tonic during the summer.
The 8-ounce candles start at $20 and will burn for 50-60 hours. You can buy them online or in select stores across the United States.
