Heart of the Matter

Sir Candle Man x LAFCO New York

Sir Candle Man and Jon Bresler met under serendipitous circumstances. An impromptu visit to a Los Angeles store introduced the home fragrance influencer to his first LAFCO experience—sparking an interest in pure, purposeful ingredients that led him to the LAFCO founder. The connoisseurs’ easy rapport, penchant for vanilla, and belief that scent-scaping is self-care take shape in Heart of the Matter: a vanilla-based fragrance crafted to evoke gratitude, joy, and hope.
