PEONY + JASMINE | Scented Candle

The scent of peonies with jasmine rose and a delicate hint of red apple are fused with soft new leather, an utterly gorgeous blend of Modern Theory's Peony + Jasmine scented candle. 

The WOMANKIND Collection honors brave, bold women everywhere. 5% of sales will be donated to Madre, an international women's human rights organization that meets urgent needs in communities and builds lasting solutions to the crises women face.

About the Founder

After getting her Ph.D. in cellular biology, founder Michelle Tu launched a skincare brand. However, she realized that her core values didn’t align with that of the cutthroat skincare industry and found herself turning to candle-making in order to relieve stress. Michelle’s candle-making started to gain more attention and demand, and she eventually decided to turn her hobby into a business—and that’s how Modern Theory came to be!
