Our first scent, Pagua Bay, is inspired by the small island nation of Dominica in the West Indies. The fragrance combines the essence of the local bay leaf with native spices, florals and woods – providing a breathtaking, sensory journey where treetops meet ocean and subtle notes float on cool tropical breezes.
If you're fragrance curious, you're welcome to purchase a Scent Coin and experience Pagua Bay at home before committing to a candle. A few days after your Scent Coin arrives, we will email you a code to apply the cost of the Scent Coin to a candle purchase and receive $20.00 off the candle price.
Beeswax candles are clean and sustainable but historically not super luxe.
We've changed that.
We use pure Dominican beeswax and blend it with sustainable soy wax and coconut oil. Once we perfect the wax blend, we add high-quality, phthalate-free fragrance oil to create a slow-burning, high throw, clean blend for you to enjoy.
The Isle de Nature candle vessel is made to last forever. Remember when families owned treasured heirlooms? Beautiful, built to last pieces that held their value, emotional and financial, and were kept safe until it was time to pass on to the next generation?
We miss that.
No two pieces are alike. Each vessel is handmade in the USA of beautiful translucent clay. When lit, the candle gently illuminates from within to reveal the delicate honeycomb pattern within, a masterfully crafted homage to honeybees created by world-renowned designer Joe Doucet.
Consider your purchase a small investment. When your candle is finished, save your vessel. You can either up-cycle it or hold on to it until we launch our subscription refill program in mid-2021 (this is a fluid date as covid19 is impacting manufacturing timelines around the world).

At Isle de Nature, we’ve made supporting the bees our mission.rnWe believe that when we take from the earth, we need to replenish. But we need to not only nurture the bees, but we also need to protect them. That’s why we’ve begun to build our own hives in locations where nature is in its abundant glory. We now have hives in Dominica and The Berkshires (western Massachusetts) and continue to expand our operations.
