Arlo Jacob is a mom and pop candle company located in Los Angeles founded by Jon Setzen. All of their candles are individually hand-poured and made with 100% coconut wax. Their first candle "Courlander" is hand-crafted with the essence of Jon's grandfather’s 75 year-old tobacco recipe. This signature combination of blended tobacco, anise seed, brown sugar, and a pinch of dried plum.
"Just the hint of pipe tobacco wafting in the breeze can bring childhood memories flooding back. Don’t we all have a story about someone we loved who smoked a pipe? Here’s mine.
Long ago in a faraway land - known then as Rhodesia - my grandfather mixed, by hand, his own signature tobacco blend.
He’d sample each batch in a small clay pipe. Adding a pinch of brown sugar or a dash of ground dried plum until the smell and taste were just as he remembered.
Granddad is a remarkable man. This candle is my tribute to him. Hand-crafted with the essence of his one-of-a-kind tobacco blend, it burns with the same fire that sparked his clay tasting pipe more than a half century ago.
Its aroma will fill your room, allowing your thoughts to wander to simpler days. As mine do, every single time."
