Graphic designer Geoff Weiser and former retail buyer, Suji Meswani, are the co-owners of Skeem Candles. Prior to launching the Skeem brand in 2004, this Philadelphia based husband and wife team, did more than a year of research and development to perfect the wax formulation, develop the scents and colors and, of course, create the candles themselves. The name “Skeem”? Well, it is a play on words and the company is named after the couple’s “scheme” to break free from the corporate world. The rich, colorful designs and unique long-lasting scents are inspired by their vast travels which include three to four annual trips to exotic locales such as, India, Costa Rica, and Thailand.
The Blood Orange Candle ($36) has a strong and delightful citrus scent that fills an entire room with an uplifting aroma. The smell is comforting and warm, yet coyly seductive and exotic. The candle features three wicks and has 80 hours of burning time. The lid features highly saturated images of signs, stamps, and rupees in a riot of contrasting Bollywood-esque color. The beautiful jar is reusable once the candle is finished burning. The Half Pint version of this particular scent is $14. Skeem Candles are perfect for any candle connoisseur!
