On the isolated Georges Island in Boston Harbor lies the historic Fort Warren. Its granite walls, which once resonated with the sounds of Civil War prisoners, now echo with whispers of the past. Scents of Earl Grey Tea, Musk, and Beeswax drift through the shadowy corridors and silent rooms, Fort Warren serves as a haunting reminder of wartime despair.

Haunted History

Constructed between 1833 and 1861, Fort Warren was named in honor of Revolutionary War hero Dr. Joseph Warren. Serving as a training ground, a prison for Confederate soldiers and officials, and a defensive fort during the Civil War, Fort Warren was a bustling epicenter of military activity.

Its strategic location and robust design made it an integral part of the defense system of Boston Harbor. While the fort never saw direct combat, the echoes of war and the trials of its prisoners permeate its historic granite walls.

Among the countless tales from Fort Warren's past, none has captured the collective imagination quite like the legend of the Lady in Black. This ghostly figure, reportedly seen by numerous visitors over the years, is believed to be the spirit of Mrs. Melanie Lanier.

All candles are made with 100% domestically-grown soy wax, fragrance oils, and organic cotton-core wicks. The fragrances we use are paraben-free, phthalate-free, and are never tested on animals.

How to use

Following Candle Care helps to ensure product quality + longevity. We highly recommend following each of the following steps:

Trim your candle's wick to 1/4" before each lighting or once your candle has cooled.

Never attempt to trim a burning candle.

Discard the snipped portion in the trash; never leave wick trimmings in your candle jar.

The wick should always remain centered and away from the sides of the vessel.

Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar during each burn to prevent tunneling.


Safety first - because candles contain a small flame, we encourage following these rules:

Never leave a candle burning unattended, near a draft, or in reach of children or pets.

Don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.

Stop burning your candle when only 1/4" of wax remains.

Do not pick up a burning candle or immediately after it's been blown out.

Protect the surface underneath the candle no matter the material.
