Curupira Candle



“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it.” — Edith Wharton 

Candles accompany our most precious milestones and moments, gatherings and celebrations, meals and romance. They attend our spiritual life from birth to burial.

We love them for their soothing illumination and for the many places their fragrances transport us — across our memory or toward our hopes for what is to come.

In truth, the flickering allure of hand-poured wax in glass is a welcome comfort during any point of the day in modern life, where our senses are often held hostage by artificial lights, sounds and smells.

For all of these reasons, we created the Curupira (koo-roo-pee'-ra) Candle and its new signature scent to embody the ancient lushness and liveliness of the rain forest—earth, roots, woods and leather inspired by the mythical Curupira of Brazilian folklore, a mysterious defender of the forests.

Base Notes: Sandalwood, Cedar Wood, Oud
Heart Notes: Leaf of Violet, Forest Floor, Vetiver
Top Notes: Clary Sage, Leather, Spanish Labdanum

Light this candle when you wish to summon comfort and ambiance, for moments when you’re setting an intention or during meditation and prayer. Light the Curupira to enhance your next restorative soak.

The perfect gift for host and hostess, friend and family — or to treat yourself — to kindle the allure of the rain forest for bath and home. And its a great unisex gift, with a scent good men everywhere will appreciate!

Meet the Curupira (koo-roo-pee'-ra)

The mythological Curupira of Brazilian folklore, a mysterious defender of the forests, inspires Eu2Be to help you Be the Guardian of what's precious — starting with your skin.

He also inspired us to create this 100% soy candle with our new signature fragrance. Using earth, roots, woods and leather to tell his story in an enigmatic new essence, we encourage you to light this candle to summon the comfort of your skin and senses. 

Candlemaker Refugio Jimenez
Arcane Chemistry, Salem, Oregon

Every memory has a scent attached to it, Refugio tells us, and yet scent is so fleeting that we've spent centuries seeking elusive essences of roots, grass, trees, seeds, fruits and flowers to capture a moment, a place or an imagined land. He is passionate about telling olfactory stories like the Curupira with his luxurious candles designed to welcome and unite scents and senses into our life memories.

  • Never leave a candle unattended.
  • On the first burn, allow the melt pool to reach the edges of the jar. Doing this will help burn the candle more evenly and prevent "tunneling." 
  • Please remember to always trim the wick to a 1/4 of inch between each burn.
  • Discontinue use once there is only 1/2" inch of wax left
