The ceramic vessel of the Provider Store Matsu Candle is made in a family-run workshop in Gifu, Japan. This textured cup houses a candle in the label's No. 1 scent, 'Tabako,' a heady combination of tobacco, leather, cardamom, and clove.
Among their selections of slow-made homewares, Provider Store's candles have garnered attention not only for their subtly rich fragrances but for the beautifully crafted vessels into which the candles are hand-poured at the label's Surrey Hills headquarters. These beautiful ceramic vessels sourced from artisans across Japan also form an important part of Provider Store's genesis story: it was a trip to Japan during which she met many of these very craftspeople that inspired Tara Bennett to start the label in 2014.
