John and Linda Meyers are the creative duo behind Wary Meyers Decorative Arts
, a multifaceted creative studio based in Portland, Maine. Their latest endeavor is a collection of scented candles, hand-poured in small batches. Scents run the gamut from Coco Nuit, a blend of coconut, suntan oil, and cannabis, to Milky Way, "a cosmic mélange of cream and warm leche." The packaging is equally as alluring: each glass jar is hand-gold-leafed and comes in a box featuring a revived vintage typeface set amongst John's watercolors.

There are seven deliciously unexpected scents in all, and at only $28.50 each, they're a fraction of the cost of other (more ubiquitous) candle lines. Stock up now! For an in-depth interview with John and Linda about their inspirations and so much more, visit Sight Unseen.
