Moved by the attitudes and driving forces behind modern American design, art and architecture, BALDWIN presents the first scent in an exclusive series of home fragrances. Locally designed in collaboration with an artisan candlemaker and ceramist, each hand-poured candle is a case study evocative of the lifestyle, creative processes and sensory moments experienced by America's most revered modernist icons.
Local ceramist Shoshi Watanabe forms a custom vessel for BLDWN-PM 03 at his studio in Los Angeles.
BLDWN-PM 03: Fragrant with crisp notes of birch, cypress pine and eucalyptus mint, BLDWN-PM 03 pays homage to leading American furniture designer Paul McCobb and his inclusive approach to mid-century design. McCobb interpreted luxury differently than his peers, defining artistry and collectability through shape and form, not price. His use of humble materials like birch and maple resulted in functional-yet-sculpturesque furnishings with wide appeal.
