Moro Dabron is a partnership between London-based designers, Austin Moro and Eliza Dabron. Born from a love of romantic interiors and gardens, a kinship with fragrance, and a shared aesthetic sensibility, they carve a ruminative space for the poetics of scent.
Made from black stoneware, the Augustine candle vessel is fired in an English pottery and poured with fragranced wax. After burning the candle, the vessel can be repurposed as a vase for flowers or a decorative receptacle.
Augustine brings to mind tradition, cool marble, and rain-drenched earth. Its many undertones feel ensconced in a bygone era, one of opulent hallways and heels clacking softly down echoing corridors. Top notes of frankincense and cistus hang aloft in an age-old tapestry of aromas, while a warm heart of agarwood and vetiver open to a base of amber, labdanum, and musk. It is a scent that deepens as one leans into it, a rich blend of notes that sit on the ruminative cusp between the classical and the modern, embracing both Apollonian austerity and Dionysian fervour.
Burn time: 70+ hours. For a better burning experience, trim candle wick before each use.
