The Hamptons have a certain character that you can’t find anywhere else. Each town has its own unique vibe, an allure that keeps people coming back year after year. While you might find it difficult to take all of a place like Montauk home with you, Hamptons Handpoured — a lovely local candle business, offers a refreshing and transportable piece of whichever area you just can’t seem to live without.
Brittany Torres, the founder of Hamptons Handpoured, has always had a passion for aromatherapy. Knowing that the sense of smell is one of the most powerful tools in recalling memories, Torres uses her small business here on the East End to provide visitors with a product they won’t forget. With candles that are uniquely designed to represent each town of the Hamptons, you’ll feel like you’re out here even when you’re not.
This local candle company hand pours all of their candles with 100% high quality burning soy and essential oil blends. Each of the five original scents were created to embody the towns of the East End, from Westhampton all the way out to Montauk, with location-specific influences and ingredients to properly represent each area.
The Bridgehampton scent is comprised of lime, arugula and honeysuckle —an awesome reminder of the sweet smell of honeysuckles near the hedges along the ocean and the fresh scent of sumptuous backyard fields. Montauk’s candle, cleverly named “The End,” is comprised of Sandalwood, Bergamot and spice. Sounds spot-on. Wonder if we can get one of these in the office?
You can find Hamptons Handpoured Candles in locations throughout Long Island.
