A rich beeswax scent with notes of honey, immortelle, warm resins (to imply the lighted oil effect), and soft smoke note that adds depth and solemnity to the fragrance. Some might say it’s a not-so-sweet, slightly burnt honey perfume.
[...] It was during the Maccabean Revolt that the re-dedication of the Temple, the lighting of the Menorah, and the ‘miracle of the oil’ occurred. As fitting with the mythology of ‘light overcoming the darkness’ at this time of year, MaccaBees is as luminous as it is dark with elements of smoke, rich oil, and beeswax (and touches of honey). Within it there is comfort, safety, and a deep sense of home.
MaccaBees celebrates the candles, and the oil, that have illuminated our world for thousands of years, as well as the light and warmth within us that they represent. (And I have to admit, candles have always been my favorite part of Holiday Season rituals, I’m truly delighted to share this scent with you!)
