A particularly aromatic corner of the humongous convention center smelled absolutely fab, courtesy of show sponsor, KOBO CANDLES.
This line of family owned flickers manages to stand out of what is a crowded market space ---because of an amazing assortment of natural scents via essential oils and fragrances, eco friendly cotton wicks, and 100% clean burning, domestically grown pure soy wax compositions.
The stunning packaging in scent appropriate graphics holds the glass candle holders with a metal top and a handy box of oversized matches.
Just about every one of the 100s of samples that owner Louis Hotchkiss hauled to the tradeshow…was sold to attendees that knew to get there by Day One.
Our fav and a bestseller- is the Vetiver And Shaved Vanilla scent with hints of golden amber. Antique Lavender with teakwood and amber …and a Fresh Currant candle round out the top picks of show attendees.
WHAT’S NEW: Travel tins-with small sized signature matches… and some new scents are set to debut in a few weeks, including one with tobacco hints (TABA AND TALC) and LEATHER MAHOGONY. Yum!
RETAIL: ABC CARPET AND HOME, TAKASHIMAYA NYC, and online at Amazon.
