They say scent is the sense most closely linked to memory, so we created this jar of fragrant nostalgia. Inspired by the scent of night blooming Arabian jasmine, this candle was carefully crafted and poured with the quintessential fragrance in mind. Our 8 oz natural soy wax candle has a burn time of ~50 hours and comes in 10 oz black frosted glass vessel. The absolutely perfect gift for anyone (or rather, yourself) who lusts after the scent of motia back home.

Made in USA, poured with  in San Francisco

My experience with Kishmish was exceptional! The candles smell incredible, the packaging is beautiful, and customer experience was great. I can't wait to purchase more for gifts!

Motia candle

I got this as a house warming gift for a cousin. Smelled really nice. More importantly we received the candle in time despite USPS delays. Our cousin was very happy with the product.

Smells just like my grandmother's garden.

This was kind of an emotional purchase. My grandma passed away unexpectedly last month. It was very hard for me because I couldn't grieve naturally since my mother left on a flight and I was super busy taking care of my siblings and juggling finals. I felt very numb to it all. The day after her passing I was scrolling through social media to distract myself and saw this pop up. I immediately remembered the smell of motia from my grandmothers garden. It's so connected to my memory of her. The smell is angelic and heavenly and reminds me of her. It may be weird to some but I kinda saw this candle as her goodbye to me. A sign that she was remembering me wherever she is. I just receive the candle today and the smell is perfect. I've searched endlessly for jasmine scented perfumes that would remind me of the motia in Pakistan but nothing has ever come close. This smells like my grandma's garden in a jar.

Smells like home!

I love this candle! My one issue is that the smell is a little faint and I can't smell it unless I get really close to it.
