Keap is a sustainable candle brand based in New York State's Hudson Valley. Its candles are made with sustainable coconut wax for a clean and complete burn. They also crafted candle holders to fit any space, and to be easy to repurpose.
When it comes to scents, Keap works with legendary master perfumer Christophe Laudamiel to create well-balanced compositions that brilliantly capture the world’s most evocative scents.
Keap's scents aim to delight, refresh, and transport you to nature-inspired memories. Its candles can be purchased as part of an on-going subscription ($39.50 per candle) or one-off by scent ($49.50 per candle). It also offers a range of gifts from $22.
Some of its signuture fragrances include:
- Wood Cabin: Reminiscent of a hike in the mountains in the fall, and stopping at a wooden refuge for a break. Notes of cade juniper, nutmeg and burnt pine.
- Wild Figs: Perfect for adding a touch of sophisticated mystery to a bedroom, or wherever takes your fancy. Notes of rich fruits—from figs to brambleberries.
- Waves: Warm memories of being by the ocean—fresh air, and warm sand underfoot—sea salt, dune grasses and driftwoods mingling in the light breeze. Notes of sea salt, star anise and galbanum.
Want to try Keap's scents before deciding? Its Scent-To-Home kits ($12) include four mini candles so you can decide on your favorite fragrance before buying a full size candle or subscription.
Sustainably Sourced: Keap's candles are made from coconut wax which it believes is the best option available on the market for candle makers looking to balance product quality with sustainable sourcing practices.
Reducing Waste: Keap's candles are hand-poured in its Kingston New York studio. And it's working to remove all waste from the business. Keap uses Ecovative’s Mushroom packaging for shipments — you can pop it and the box straight into the compost bin. It also uses bio biodegradable labels on its candles and packaging.
