The blissful season of lazy afternoons, farmers market strolls, and post-vaccinated gatherings around the table (cocktails mandatory) is upon us. Luxury home fragrance brand Apotheke is about to make the transition all the more seamless with the debut of a new candle collection. The brand has released five new flavorful scents that take cues from summertime fruits and vegetables. 

The Market Collection is inspired by Apotheke co-founder and chef Sebastian Picasso’s favorite summer go-to dishes. From an iced cold lemonade to a tomato tarragon soup, the new scents include the Meyer Lemon and Mint Candle, Tomato Tarragon Candle, Arugula and Green Apple Candle, Florentine Fennel Candle, and Purple Basil Candle. Available for $38 each, the candles are hand-poured with perfume-grade fragrance oils and a soy-wax blend.

What’s more, each candle will include a recipe right inside of the box, curated by none other than Picasso. For more details on each fragrance and the recipes that inspired them, read on below.
