The candle is a mainstay of light, a companion for reading, an aromatherapeutic ‘device’ and potentially a visual feature in any gentleman’s abode. Jean-Pierre Mastey, president of Baxter of California, has leant his nose to a new candle scent, this time in collaboration with San Francisco’s Unionmade. The combination of the men’s grooming experts with the menswear store has resulted in the KML candle.

The scented soy wax candle exudes a fragrance that blends cedar and sandalwood. Housed in a natural, cylindrical box emblematic of the scent enclosed, the KML candle is available now at Unionmade stores and online.
