the goth aesthetic

Oh my goth! It’s back (in black). And no, it’s not a phase. Pinterest predicted that a goth aesthetic would make its way back into our wardrobes and homes this fall, but Who What Wear solidified the trend that many call a lifestyle, lettin’ us know it’ll be a huge part of fall & winter.

So how do you incorporate this aesthetic into your creations? Think black…lots, and lots and lots of black.

Black candles & diffusers - even black diffuser reeds. Black packaging for all those skin care, body care, or hair care products.

Anything deep, dark, and even a little grunge will make your product(s) a must-have item on people’s counters & shelves for the latter part of the year.

Take a look at some of our fave black components to get you’re gothic gears turnin’:

  • black candle vessels
  • black diffuser reeds
  • black packaging
  • black matches
  • black crystals

  • fall fragrance chocolate

    chocolate, chocolate & more chocolate.

    There’s truly nothin’ better than warm & deep fragrance notes when the seasons start to change.

    Fall fragrances like vanilla, tobacco & cinnamon will be accompanied by chocolate in 2022. Think ooey-gooey, delicious chocolate fudge. Mhmm!

    Have you ever smelled a chocolate-scented candle? Tasted a chocolate-flavored lip balm? If you’re a fan of cocoa, odds are those that you’re makin’ your goodies for are, too! Don’t forget to add chocolatey colors to match those scents!

    connection to nature

    In this post-pandemic world, people will be focused on living their best life, whether they’ve gained a newfound love for staying home or are ready to get out & start spreading their wings again.

    There is an emphasis on connection to the natural world through color, fragrance, ingredients, and functional benefits.

    What does this look like? Natural fragrances, neutral & earth-toned color palettes, and even ingredients such as active charcoal will be popular as people lean in & reconnect with nature.



    As people start opening up their homes again, there is a focus placed on functional beauty. And why not?

    Elevated packaging for housing beauty products, luxurious vessels for candles that make a statement…things can be functional & beautiful at the same time!

    Some of our favorites for fall include:

    Whether you’re aiming to expand your color palette or dabble in a new direction, we hope that these trends will guide ya where you wanna go!

    Happy making!
