Medium Dark is a candle studio with a dark heart.
We're guided by the idea that the best things are neither this or that - they contrast, contradict, abstract. We find beauty in darkness and difference, taking inspiration from moments in history and culture that are captivatingly unexpected. From scent to packaging design, we embrace duality in everything we create, bringing together elements of light and dark, tradition and irreverence, refinement and imperfection.
Our wax is all natural coconut-soy, without any chemical additives found in other natural wax 'blends.' Wicks are cotton core. Fragrances are composed heavily of essential oils and natural isolates, along with premium synthetics to ensure sustainability and performance.
Each candle is thoughtfully made by hand in Brooklyn, NY, from fragrance formulation to mixing, pouring, and hand-wrapped packaging. We believe in the profound powers of scent and light, with each candle designed to be a tactile, sensual experience from first burn to last.
