CATHERINE & CO.
The Apartment Collection is a light, nose-sensitive candle collection. These candles are simply designed, are inspired by Émeraude's motherland, contain a single wooden wick, and are poured in matte white vessels—perfect for your apartment.
Catherine & Co.'s goal is to showcase the importance of African history through clean-burning and ethically sourced candles. Each candle is handcrafted using a top grade coconut and soy wax blend, is made with non-toxic and vegan fragrance oils, is cruelty-free, and tells a story while taking you on an olfactory journey.
papaya | pah-ˈpī-yah
A tropical American tree having an oblong to globose yellow edible fruit with numerous black seeds in a central cavity. Paipái means "papaya" in Lingala.
While angoes were introduced to South Africa in the mid-17th century, the delicious treat has had a long and rich history far beyond our imagination. From being used as a currency by traders and merchants to its leaves being used for wedding decorations, this mouth-watering stone fruit has marked its place as one of the most important and most beloved food items in the world.
This candle is a love letter to mangoes and is sure to create a sweet summer breeze, evocative of the South African coast, from which it is now native. Wax is hand-poured into a glass cylinder.
- 8oz candle with wood wick.
- Fragrance profile: mango, citrus, pineapple, papaya, peach, jasmine & coconut.
- Natural blend of coconut wax and soy wax.
- Approximately 60 hours of burn time.
- Note: All products are natural and made by hand. Variations may appear and are normal—they will not affect the quality of the candle while lit.
Made in Toronto, Canada
When you shop at Landing & Co. you are supporting Canadian MADE, and championing independent designers and makers from across the country! Owner and maker, Émeraude Domingos-Mbuku named this small company after her mother because all of her business sense comes from her. When she told her she wanted to start a candle company, she was the first person to tell her that it wouldn’t be easy and that she should remain passionate about what she does in order to succeed. She had watched her mother do it for years, after all. Her mother is her biggest supporter and while she may not be following in her exact footsteps, she holds her ideologies near. For this reason, Catherine & Co. aims to create clean-burning candles at affordable prices through the sourcing of ethical materials from the most reputable companies in North America.
