Let it Burn

Daily Shop

Summer may still be a few short months away, but take a whiff of this seasonal, mango banana leaf scented candle from Sarasota Candle Company and you’ll immediately be transported to the simpler days of sweet summertime. Stop by Sarasota Candle Company’s stand at the Sarasota Farmer’s market every Saturday for a quick laugh—each week the owner writes up a witty remark on a chalkboard—and, of course, the strong aroma of home-made, tropically blended pillars, floating coconuts, SRQubes and Soyflakes—all of which have become local favorites over the years. With a 50-hour burn time, each candle gets lit before being sold, showing respect for the old wives tale: it’s unlucky to have an unlit candle in one’s home.
