Every November, here in the Pacific Northwest, we experience strong wind gusts coming from the shores. Sometimes they bring heavy rains, even snow, sometimes they bring damage. The windstorms anchor the boats and bend the trees, covering the roads with wet pine mulch and limbs. Native tribes of the Olympic Peninsula depict these windstorms as the legendary Thunderbird - a giant bird with “wings twice as long as a war canoe”. Often, the powerful winds cut off the power in our houses, making us light the candles and sit in silence as we watch the trees dancing their ominous dance and listen to the howling winds.

This candle captures the smells brought in by the Pacific coastal winds in the late fall/ early winter season. Eucalyptus imparts the sensation of the wind gusts.

Ocean briny, piney, ambery, calming, moody.

Projection strength: moderate to strong.
