Gorilla candle

celebrates “world gorilla day” – 24 september

Product description:
World gorilla day aims to help give a voice to one of our closest relatives – these charismatic, intelligent animals all have behaviors and emotions so similar to our own human experiences, as illuminated by the infamous dian fossey, who initiated world gorilla day.

Mountain gorillas are endangered – there are only an estimated 1,000+ in the wild. The main threat to mountain gorillas is the degradation of their habitat. As the region’s population grows, the land is increasingly converted for agriculture, and competition for limited natural resources inevitably leads to deforestation.

World gorilla day is an opportunity to empower global communities to take action for all 4 gorilla subspecies (mountain gorilla, cross river gorilla, western lowland gorilla, and grauer’s gorilla) and to fight for their conservation.

Our candles help raise awareness and we invite you to join us in celebrating world gorilla day! #worldgorilladay #september24

3 gorilla fun facts: we share 98% of our dna with gorillas. gorillas live in a social family unit called a troop or a band. female gorillas usually only give birth to 1 baby every 4-6 years.

fragrance: hibiscus palm

Our “world gorilla day” candle transports you deep into the cradle of nature that is east-central africa. An established band of mountain gorillas reside in the dense forests on the lush slopes of the resource-rich virunga volcanoes (a region spanning 3 national parks in uganda, rwanda and democratic republic of congo). The troop wakes up just after sunrise to search for food, which occupies most of their day. The young juveniles are wrestling and playing silly games, hugging and tumbling with each other across the deep green forest floor. As night approaches and covers the sky above the canopy of tall trees, the mountain gorillas all gather together and fall into a deep sleep, tucked snugly into their nests of fertile green foliage.

To capture the essence of the peaceful gorilla, our fragrance is infused with a base of powder and violet, cradling mid notes of green leaves and florals, crested by top notes of lime, agave, and honeydew — tropical botanicals unite with lush florals to create this sultry, luxe fragrance that nurtures you into a world of tranquility.
