Tulip & Bear started as a passion project and grew into a business. The founder, Margaret Hunter, based out of Richmond, VA, wanted to make candles of the same high quality and refined aesthetic as the ones in her favorite designer candle shops, but at a fraction of the price.
Tulip & Bear's candles are made in small batches of 8-10, hand-poured to ensure quality and preserve the artistry of the trade. Each candle is a true labor of love and they. smell. amazing.

the fading green of galbanam giving way to rich ripe earth
“At no other time (than autumn) does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea, bitter where it borders on taste, and more honeysweet where you feel it touching the first sounds."
