The Alder trail connects Leif Erikson to Wildwood, which was completed in 1980. Deciduous red alder, cedar and big-leaf maple primarily line this trail, which inspired this scent to be heavily and richly woody. It is surely one that will uplift and soothe your spirit.

Best smelling candle I've ever owned

I love many of the Wildwood scents but Alder holds a special place in my heart. Sweet, soft and woodsy, it's perfect for a cozy night at home almost any time of year. Repeat customer for life.

Palo Santo Candle

Great candle. Arrived fast and in great packaging. Definitely read the instructions on how to burn if you want the most out of it as the is not just like any other cotton wick candle. I only have 4 starts because I didn’t think the fragrance was that strong at all. If it’s burning for 1-2 hours the fragrance in our bathroom is very very faint. This candle gets a 5/5 for ambiance though.


Happy to receive my candle purchase. Candles are packaged well, and once I open the box, I am greeted by the best, clean fragrance. Thank you, Wildwood Candle Co.

Perfect cozy winter scent

Whenever this candle is burning, someone always asks about it. It's perfectly light but also Palo Santo cozy and warm. I just finished this candle and will absolutely buy another one. So lovely!

Delightful Candle

I purchased this at Tender Loving Empire in Bridgeport Village and let me tell you - what a great candle! With a wonderful scent and the crackling sounds you only get from an actual wood wick, I instantly fell in love! Once this one is close to burnt out I'll order many more!
