Mattei's Tavern, Los Olivos

October, 1886

The 5 pm stagecoach from Santa Barbara arrives with a clatter of hoofbeats, raising a rich, dusky scent from the baking earth. Passengers alight from their journey across the chaparral covered San Marcos Pass, arriving weary yet beguiled by the heady bouquet of the Santa Ynez Mountains: sweet artemisia and bitter chaparral sage on the sunny ridges, aromatic fennel and herbal bay laurel in the canyon bottoms. Now resting on the Tavern's veranda, the passengers watch as the lowering sun burnishes the golden hills spooling out before them, their scent of curing hay and buckwheat carried aloft by the faintest Pacific zephyr.

Notes include: Chaparral sage, California sagebrush, manzanita, buckwheat, fennel, California bay laurel, scrub oak, mountain mahogany, and sun baked earth.

High-concentration scented candle:  8.9 oz / 251 g.

Estimated burning time:  55 to 60 hours.

Made in USA 


Pickup available at Santa Ynez Store Front

Usually ready in 24 hours
