An enchanting night in New York City, nestled inside a dark, musky speakeasy.

key notes: amber, oakmoss, musk

size: 11 oz. 

burn time: 70+ hours

contents: Coconut/vegetable proprietary blend 

Who doesn’t love a brisk, Fall night on a New York City street? Passersby holding hands and reveling in an evening well spent in one of the world’s most extraordinary cities. For my husband and I, New York is by and large our preferred place to get away. We slip into our favorite speakeasy named Little Branch...a dark, yet civilized basement bar with a musky, amber smell housed in its walls.

It’s always easy to forget the chaos you leave behind and lose track of time when you come to this place. Enchanting and romantic, our inspiration for LITTLE BRANCH lies within the walls of its namesake.

APOLENA [sea salt]

key notes: sea salt, sage, ambrette seed

Our favorite mild fragrance showcases the beautiful complexities of sea notes. Composed of sea salt, sage, and ambrette seed, it evokes feelings of freedom and pleasure, like an enjoyable walk along Balboa Island on a beautiful summer morning.

COLONY [cassis] 

key notes: cassis, bergamot, musk

Create a welcoming mood with this warm and sophisticated scent that begins with bergamot and cassis, developed over a white rose and musk.  Perfect for a cocktail hour with friends or while relaxing with your favorite book (or social media site:)

GROVE [orange blossom] 

key notes: orange blossom, jasmine, bergamot

Transport yourself to a grove of orange trees, with their tiny white flowers in bloom. This light but strong scent will take you there.

HARRIETS TREE [grapefruit]  

key notes:  grapefruit, peach, berries

A vibrant citrus fragrance that illustrates invigorating notes of tropical fruits, crisp citrus, and exotic greens.  It is light and sweet, while still noticeable in your surrounding space. 

JACK [pumpkin]

key notes: pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla

A sophisticated fall fragrance with top notes of cinnamon and vanilla which intermingle with baked pumpkin, while graham cracker base notes add a creamy, toasty character. An ode to special times together as we begin the holiday season carving pumpkins into Jack-o'-lanterns.

LIDO [sandalwood]

key notes: sandalwood, musk, violet

This bestselling scent is warm and comforting, highlighting its creamy facets while balancing the sharpness of sandalwood paired with sweet violet and woodsy musk. Perfect for any occasion and any time of year.


key notes: amber, sage, oakmoss

This captivating fragrance begins with hints of citrus and an infusion of sage that enhance the natural, earthy quality. Lavender adds a soft floral and herbal touch to the heart of this scent, while amber and oakmoss round out the base for a beautiful, deep character.

MARGARET [currant] 

key notes: currant, musk, rhubarb

A sophisticated and playfully sweet scent with aspects of pink currant and rhubarb over a heart of white jasmine petals and musky base.  A wonderful balance of notes will light up the room for any occasion.

MR. DOUGLAS [pine]

key notes: pine, cedarwood, fir 

Our popular pine scented candle that makes you think “Christmas time”, with mild citrus top notes, earthy undercurrents of cedar and evergreen, and a woody, fir base. But for some, the scent of pine is a year-round fav, like taking a hike on your favorite pine tree lined trail.

PETALUMA [berry] 

key notes: berry, pink peppercorn, rose petals

The tangy richness of freshly picked blackcurrant berries and lively accents of flowery rose petals create this light, floral, and feminine scent.

All of the scents I ordered are wonderful. Purchase came packaged securely, although 2 of the candles were not sealed like the other 6 candles and one of the boxes telescoped inside the bottom container so I cannot gift it in the box.

Hi Susan! I am so so sorry about this! Was this the grey cylinder box the candle came packaged in? If so, we would love to ship you out some new boxes. This should never be the case! Appreciate your support so much. Please email me at

Love this!

This candle is wonderful. It smells very fresh, earthy and sophisticated. I’m burning it in my loft which I also use as my office when I work from home. It has moderate throw and the packaging is classic. I will definitely purchase again! Thank you backhouse!

Husband approved

In all our years together, I have burned many candles, Little Branch is the ONLY candle my husband has ever stopped to comment how good our house smells lol. It is such an inviting and warm scent, fills a room without being overwhelming. My favorites are a ties between this, Lido, and Mr. Douglas so far!

Awesome Jaye
Classy & Sophisticated

If you like classy, sophisticated fragrances with a touch of elegance, this fragrance is for you! I have it burning in my Master bedroom and it lights up the entire room! #burningthebackhouse

Beautiful modern smell

This smells awesome. I didn’t want anything that smelled too fruity or “bath and bodyworks”. The glass jar is a nice substantial weight. I took a risk ordering without smelling in person but this is perfect. Will be buying for friends!
