Trillium Candle - lily of the valley, petrichor
The Trillium Trail is a beautiful quarter mile connector trail between Firelane 7 and mile marker 18.5 on the Wildwood Trail. In early Spring, trillium, a low-growing woodland three petaled wildflower (part of the lily family), are abundantly exhibited in bloom around damp wooded areas, such as around this section of trail. Depending on the species and conditions, it can take 4-15 years for a trillium to produce its first flower, and only has one blossom each year. Because they have become so rare, and are difficult to grow, most are protected and illegal to pick in their wooded habitats. After their white petals bloom in the spring, they turn light purple, go dormant and die back to the ground for next year.
It is the flower we anticipate most after the long winter, especially in the Pacific Northwest. To bring the excitement and hopefulness of Spring into bloom, we combined the essence of planting fresh bulbs in the soil after rain, with floral notes of lily of the valley and lilac, topped with a bit of ozone and green leaves. The vibrant yellow pollen of the trillium inspires the ochre colored label.

These are my favorite candles of all time. The Trillium really does smell like petrichor. I savor every burn of this candle. Thank you for these beautiful products.
Bought this as a gift for someone—the Trillium scent is so unique and delicious. I’ve smelled their other candles at a shop and they are yummy, too!
I’ve burned Trillium for several hours so far and am really enjoying this new scent. I could be biased because I love that “after the rain” petrichor scent that’s incorporated here. The subtle floral notes balance it out well and I like that it’s not overly floral. This is a great nod to Spring but would enjoy burning this one year-round in my home!
