Rioja Small Candle


Regular price $70.00 Sale

Located in North Central Spain, the Rioja Region is found just south of the Cantabrian Mountains along the Ebro River. Tempranillo, a variety native to the Rioja Region, is a black grape with a thick skin and is ruby red in color. Unlike more aromatic red wines, the variety has a relatively neutral profile so it is often blended with Grenache, Carignan and Mazuelo due to its low acidic and sugar content. The name Tempranillo is derived from the Spanish word temprano which means early, a reference to the fact that this grape ripens several weeks earlier than most Spanish red grapes. Our Rioja candle is the perfect marriage of obsession for travel and exploration. This full-bodied candle exhibits aromas of Plum, Cherry, Strawberry and Blackberry. As the scent develops, traces of vanilla are uncovered and as a finishing touch, it surprises the nose with a refined hint of tobacco.

    Caring for your candle:

    • Before you light your etúHOME candle, trim the wick to ¼ inch. By shortening the wick, you allow it to burn more slowly.
    • The first time you burn your etúHOME candle, allow it to burn until the entire surface liquefies. This will help your candle burn more evenly the next time.
    • Keep your luxury candle lit for no more than 4 hours at a time to ensure maximum fragrance output.
    • After blowing out your etúHOME candle, re-center and straighten the wick.
    • In order to preserve your candles in their original condition, it is important you store them in a dry and cool environment. Ideally, this means room temperature or lower. Higher temperatures will cause candles to soften, bend or melt entirely.
