We're so excited to announce our latest launch: McGee & Co. Candles!
From the time we began Studio McGee in 2014, we've been dreaming about ways to make this world we live in just a bit more special and meaningful, hence our motto "Make Life Beautiful." This mission has carried us through all of the sacrifices and leaps we've made over the years to get to where we are now, and we couldn't be more grateful for the opportunity to do what we love and inspire others to create beauty around them. With the launch of McGee & Co, we were able to make our mission tangible by offering our favorite products to not only our clients but to a broader range of customers all over the country. Be it a full redesign by our studio, a piece of art from our shop, or a styled shelf inspired by our design tips; there's nothing we love more than seeing our mission come to life in our customer's homes. Our newest product line, McGee & Co. Candle, was inspired by just that.
In five curated scents, Forest + Fir, Citrus + Birch, Cedar + Rose, Salt + Sea, and Terra + Vine, each McGee & Co. Candle is hand poured in the USA and made with soy for the cleanest burn. Perfect for gifting or keeping for yourself, our candles act as functional decor and add an elevated touch of aromatic ambiance to any room. We love styling them on coffee tables next to a decorative matchbox, grouped in the dining room for an evening of entertaining, or using them as a final touch on a shelf, countertop, or bedside table. When lit, they bring instant hygge, and when not in use, they create a lived-in feel while adding visual depth and dimension.
As far as we're concerned, the only downside to these candles is picking which one (or two) you want to burn first. Keep scrolling for more details on each one, and our team's recommendations for their best uses.
For flipping through cookbooks - Terra + Vine
You just got through rinsing the soil off of your garden-fresh produce, and you’re feeling experimental. Reaching to the top of your open shelving overflowing with found pottery, you select one of your many carefully curated cookbooks to gather some inspiration. You wonder why your kitchen is already filled with notes of ripe vines and fresh green stems, only to realize Terra + Vine is burning next to your kitchen sink.
For cozying up by the fire - Citrus + Birch
You’re reading a book in your favorite chair after a long day. It’s time to wind down and light your favorite candle, the one that makes you feel like you’re sitting by a fireplace in a hidden french cottage with nothing to check off your list. Citrus + Birch flickers as you doze off for a nap.
For laundering linen - Salt + Sea
You spent the day seaside under a broad-brimmed striped umbrella with your favorite novel and a tall glass of cucumber-mint lemonade. Salt + Sea is burning as you carefully launder your vintage coverup and brush the lingering sand off of your sun-kissed skin.
For the last coat of lipstick - Cedar + Rose
It’s date night and you’re freshening up in the powder room after a long bubble bath. Cedar + Rose is burning while you pick a subtle pink shade of blush and wonder what dress to wear.
For seasonal entertaining - Forest + Fir
Aside from foraging through the forest to find the perfect tree, setting the table is your favorite past time. Your friends and family are on their way to celebrate the holidays, and you need one final touch for your styled table. Enter Forest + Fir, the perfect candle for the scene. You love the way it freshens up the room so much that you even burn it long after the last present is unpacked on Christmas Day.
We can’t wait for you to experience the McGee & Co. candle collection and we hope you love them as much as we do! Be sure to tag McGee & Co. on Instagram to show us how you style them in your space!
