was your shop previously "Wick and Maple"?
It sure was! The name + brand that started it all, Wick and Maple started in Feb. 2019 with small batches of seasonal fragrance. After quickly growing to ship to customers across all 50 states and Canada, and garnering support from influencers, blogs, and Jeni (from Jeni's Ice Cream!) we rebranded and set out on a mission to build a fragrance house. welcome!
when we rebranded, we also discontinued our previous fragrances. However, we currently have five, signature fragrances that include two extensions of our previous best-sellers - "Oat" and "Nectar". Furthermore, for those looking for similar notes in our new line, here's a mini guideline:
what ingredients are your candles made of?
our candles contain NO - paraffin, soy, or mystery wax fillers that other brands use. the result is a clean, long-burning vegan candle with a superior creamy appearance, strong fragrance throw, and minimal soot.
are your candles clean?
in order to prevent overharvesting, we chose a couple safe synthetics that mimic our nature-inspired fragrances. these synthetics are made with highly strict consideration to chemicals, toxins, and hazards banned in the US and Europe. this ensures we don't contribute to growing pollution, wildfires, and other consequences that may stem from fragrance companies.
how long do the candles burn?
our candles are 10 oz. / 296 g and burn for approximately 70-75 hrs
what's the difference between a cotton hemp wick and a wooden wick?
here at House of Foster we have two wick options for our candle vessels:
this is our crackling wick. an eco-sourced wooden wick crafted from native sap trees that crackles as it burns - as a fireplace would.
are the candle jars reusable?
not only are the candle jars reusable - but they are manufactured with recyclable glass as cocktail + whisky tumblers. this means they are dishwasher safe, bpa / heavy metal free, and safe for drinking, plant potting, and more. they are recyclable as well.
where are your candles made?
each candle and fragrance is blended, hand-poured and packaged by us every day.
eau de parfum /
what ingredients is your parfum base made of?
our parfum base includes a blend of organic witch hazel, organic grape alcohol, bittering agents (to deter digestion), vegan humectants (to act as a barrier and moisturizer from the alcohol), and a non-comedogenic natural oil-based emulsifier (for added skin nourishment and hydration).
how long does the perfume last on the skin?
our eau de parfums are carefully formulated with extraits (extracts) and potent absolutes at the forefront. this means our perfume not only has a stable, solid throw but also lasts long on the skin ensuring you can wear it all day without needing to reapply.
how long will 100ml of perfume last me?
are your fragrances really gender-neutral? what does that mean?
