Buy This Hand-Poured Candle, Plant-Based Exfoliant and Sophisticated Watch

All three of these items are our new and noteworthy products this May.


Milk Jar Candle Company

Breathe in; breathe out. If the air you’re breathing doesn’t smell heavenly, you need a Milk Jar Candle Company candle ($25). With seven candles available, including the white nectarine and pear-scented Sunnyside, the plumeria and lilac-scented Hawaii and the mahogany, firewood and pine-scented Dandy (pictured), these 100-per-cent soy wax, wood-wick candles are highly coveted. Hand-poured in Calgary by Holly Singer, Milk Jar candles have quickly become a must-have item on every fragrance-loving Calgarian’s shopping list.

Various local retailers, including Outside the Shape, 1222 10 Ave. S.E., 403-540-9993,;

Monsieur Watch Company

Locally designed timepieces are having a bit moment in Calgary, and Monsieur Watch Company is leading the trend with its sophisticated vintage style. The Kensington Watch ($229), with its gold stainless-steel casing and sapphire crystal glass, is a piece that can live in your wardrobe for years to come, while the beautiful custom detailing and pure black leather strap make it trendy enough to wear now. A portion of the proceeds from every watch sold is donated to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Northlore Goods

Northlore Goods owner Natassia Brazeau is dedicated to creating “rituals of self-care” that promote healing and nourishing. That has led her to source plant-based ingredients located near the banks of the South Saskatchewan River in Treaty 6 territory for her line of products. Take your skin cleansing routine to a higher level with the yarrow and lavender cleansing grains ($18). If you’ve never cleansed with grains before, this is your reason to start. Finely ground poppy seeds, organic grains and wildcrafted botanicals gently exfoliate and brighten your skin.
