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.
The ceramic vessel of the Provider Store Matsu Candle is made in a family-run workshop in Seto, Japan. This textured cup houses a candle in the label's No. 3 scent, 'Hikari,' a fragrance balancing open woody and pointed citrus tones combining sandalwood and oud with fir needle and bergamot.
