Wildwood Candle - fir, cedar, soil
The beloved Wildwood trail is the blood line of Forest Park and the source of inspiration for this company. It is the longest trail in the park, spanning an astounding 30.2 miles from the south (Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Oregon Zoo and Rose Garden), up to Newberry Rd. Every quarter mile is designated by a stenciled blue diamond on the bark of a tree, and is meant to signify "progress". Douglas-fir trees are the predominate vegetation in Forest Park, as well as western red cedar and hemlock.

I love this candle! It's a perfect Portland gift to give, but I also like to keep some for myself. The wooden wick adds a really nice touch. This candle lasts a really long time and makes me very happy. Thank you!
We light candles year-round in our home, and Wildwood is the PERFECT candle for all seasons. I love that it's light and fresh enough for summer, but also has so much rich character that it is the best bridge into Fall. Wildwood smells like you're standing in the middle of a PNW forest after it rains - just the most visceral experience.
I received a Leif Erikson for Christmas last year, and recently purchased two more of those because I knew I LOVED that one - and still do. I also bought a Wildwood and a Birch. Love them both! The Wildwood might be my new favorite, if I had to choose. It hits all the right notes for me. I love these candles so much. The aromas are on a different level than anything I've ever found at a big box store. Someone suggested a certain fancy brand of candle to me a few years ago, I bought one at a ridiculous price, and it was so disappointing. This candle will not disappoint.
This candle is a stunner. I'm so in love. I tend to get a headache from a lot of commercial-brand fir scented candles but not this one. Wildwood is a true balsam scent on cold whiff but once burned you unlock so many additional layers such as - wet moss and soil reminiscent of a the scent after a fresh rain, a subtle sweetness of citrus or berry that is only detectable enough to balance out the cleansing and refreshing fir and earthy, grounding, delicious cedar. The icing on the cake is the crackle of the wood wick to round out the whole experience of cozy. Phenomenal. Thank you for this treasure, I'll surely be a repeat customer. xx
This is my most favorite candle that has ever existed. I burn it every day. Year round. There is no better smell to me than this candle. It’s like being outside and hiking on the most perfect day. The smell actually fills your house, it’s lasting. It burns long and evenly. Any time I find myself in Oregon, I buy this candle. If I’m not in Oregon, I ship this candle. I have gifted this so many times and it’s always a favorite. The smell is just honestly that good! This is the hill I’ll die on.
