What's the benefit of the Entomologist Candle?
• 100% natural
• Free of DEET and other toxins used in most insect repellent products
• EPA Compliant (follows strict ingredient regulations set by The Environmental Protection Agency)
• Large 15oz three-wick candle provides 60 hrs of burn time
Signature blend of specific essential oils known to be high in phyto-chemicals that deter biting insects
• Aromatherapeutic fragrance that is both invigorating and purifying 

What does it smell like?
The Entomologist is a walk through the herb garden with freshly crushed thyme leaves, soft geranium, sun-warmed cedar and sparks of clove. The fragrance is fresh, herbal and spicy, inspiring feelings of invigoration and overall well-being.

How does it work?  
Rosemary, Cedar, Thyme, Geranium, Lemongrass, and Clove all have high concentrations of plant chemicals proven to repel biting insects. Each ingredient was carefully chosen for its functional properties and blended by our perfumer into a formula that smells incredible.

INSTRUCTIONS: To prevent damage, make sure to trim the wicks to ⅛ of an inch every time the candle is lit. Do not let it burn for more than 4 hours at a time and please place the candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface. For the best candle performance, allow the wax pool to completely liquify, extinguish, and let cool.

PRECAUTIONS: Never leave a burning candle unattended or burning for more than 4 hours. Keep away from drafts, children, pets, and all flammable materials.

“Entomology” concerns itself with the study of insects and the plants that surround them.   

Given that they outnumber humans by 1.4bn to 1, possess countless superpowers and make up more than half of the named species on the planet, it seems like Mother Nature’s heart is beating especially hard for her six-legged children. As a result, they appear to have gotten it all. They could fly before birds. They’ve seen the dinosaurs come and go. They were worshiped by pharaohs because of their inexplicable metamorphosis and can detect a hot hook-up several kilometers away. And they are wonderfully diverse. Some have ears on their tongues. Others have eyes on their penises. Some look like exquisite jewels, others like dead twigs. They are here, there and everywhere. 

As The Entomologist knows, we are inextricably entangled with these inordinate creatures and we owe them a lot, but sometimes this relationship becomes too close for comfort and we need to protect ourselves from becoming a homo sapien smorgasbord. Luckily for us, insects communicate through scent; a language we know intimately. 

By using plants as our muse and understanding how they defend themselves from unwanted invaders, we’ve developed this sublime yet functional fragrance that will keep blood-thirsty visitors at bay with its heady mix of spicy thyme, hot cinnamon, and herbaceous geranium.

RETURNS: We only accept returns for defective or damaged products. If you’d like to sample the fragrance first, we recommend you start with one of our Discovery Sets or take our Fragrance Finder Quiz for a personally recommended scent.

SHIPPING: At this time, we can only ship within the contiguous United States. If you need to find an international retailer, please email us at concierge@hereticparfum.com.

Free shipping on orders of $125 or more. Otherwise, a $10 flat shipping fee applies.
