P.F. Candle Co. founders Kristen Pumphrey and Thomas Neuberger are ready to impart their candle-making wisdom. The duo released their first-ever book, “At Home With Fragrance: Creating Modern Scents for Your Space” — and it will serve as the ultimate scripture for candle connoisseurs. Equal parts design and DIY, “At Home With Fragrance” will teach readers all about the best fragrances that work for them, how to infuse their own distinct styles, and most importantly, how to make candles, room sprays, incense, potpourri, and more. 

Available for $24.99 at P.F. Candle Co., “At Home With Fragrance” features designs and fragrances inspired by Pumphrey and Neuberger’s home state of California: organic and relaxed elements, infused with scents drawn from nature, such as redwood and eucalyptus. It all ties back to the candle company’s ethos that “scent is the perfect way to express your unique design sense.” Some of the DIY recipes include fragrance oils, candles, incense, potpourri, and simmer pots.
