Illume Candles

With beautiful packaging and bright colours, these freshly fragrant candles are crafted from natural-wax formulation of either soy, palm and beeswax, or food-grade paraffin. They are blended with essential oils and contain only domestic lead-free cotton or paper-core wicks. These qualities lead to a cleaner burn than that of vegetable paraffin which most other candle company’s candles are made of. The best part is that these candles are hand poured in L.A. only after we have placed our order! This lends itself to unbeatable freshness and quality.

 Illume candles are known for having a very high fragrance load. Rather than leading to an overpowering scent, Illume candles are able to fill your home with their fresh scent both burning and not burning. This idea of a candles scenting a room whether burning or simply a part of a home’s décor is what sparked Illumes initial owner Lynette Reed to begin making candles 15 years ago in her garage. The business has grown into a small boutique in West Hollywood where her objective of vibrant colours and unique fragrances still holds true today. 

Kobo Candles

 We are proud to  feature Kobo Candles in an assortment of unique scents.  This pure soy based candle has an unbelievable lasting burn time and the scent lingers without even having to light a match.  The packaging is equally as elegant as the scents and are just too stunning to wrap. They are created for those who are passionate about remarkable scents.


   Kobo uses only the highest quality fragrance and essential oils to create a full-bodied aroma.  If that isn’t enough, each candle is hand-poured with 100% domestically grown, pure soy wax and lead free, enviro-safe cotton wick, creating the cleanest and most planet friendly 70 hour burning candle on the market. Each candle is also complete with long reach matches and an extinguishing lid. Scents include White Birch Rosemary, D‘Anjou Lychee, Zapote, Orange Amber, Leather Mahogony, Figue Blanche, Gardenia Royal, Vetiver & Shaved Vanilla, Green Pearl Jasmine, and Portuguese Olive Blossom.

Kobo has just released their newest line of candles — Travel Candles. These beautiful 4 oz candles with their matches included are great for making stale hotel rooms smell like a retreat. The packaging and quality is just as perfect as the large candles. The travel candles offer a 20 hour burn time and come in a variety of the 70 hour candle scents.

MMMM… You’ll wonder how you ever travel without your Kobo Travel Candle!

Lucia Soaps and Candles

Pure Living was founded in January 2002, by Lucie Bernier and Andre Pace who wanted to bring not just good, but great products to customers worldwide. Lucie and Andre are passionate about the products they create and believe in their value to bring health, balance and energy through body and skin care. Pure Living has committed them self in creating a product line that is as natural and nourishing to the body as possible. This is because they believe that as a society, we are constantly being bombarded with stressful life situations: too much traffic, too much pollution, unhealthy foods, lack of exercise, too much sun, too much pressure. They also believe that we need to focus on the simple and pure pleasures of life; like a quite moment alone with no interference from the fast paced environment we live in. Finally they believe in the power of taking time to nourish our skin and protect it against the effects of aging and pollution, all without breaking the bank.

Pure Living stands true to their word when they say they commit them self to a superior product. J. Kinney Florist is proud to carry Lucia, Pure Living’s line of bath and body soap. These fresh fragrances will help you relax, clear your mind, concentrate, and stimulate your energy while at the same time moisturizing and nourishing your skin. We might add that the packaging is almost too pretty to throw away!

This Canadian company specializes in kitchen products derived from a sun-drenched land where the olive tree and aromatic plants flourish, filling your kitchen with the delectable scent of fresh-cut herbs! Made with ingredients harvested from Mediterranean gardens and groves, the olive oil rich hand care and cleaner’s pure aromas indulge the skin and the senses. Rather than merely masking cooking odors, the fragrant bouquets of Coriander and Olive Tree and Lime Zest and Cypress blend with the aromas of your favorite dishes that whet the appetite. Plus the food inspired fragrances make this line of cleaners and moisturizes ideal for both men and women. All of Cucina’s products contain olive oil for moisture retention-the trademark of Cucina. This is what makes Cucina a must for sensitive and over worked hands. Cucina’s regenerating hand cream combines all the benefits of the olive tree; cold pressed olive oil deeply moisturizes hands while olive leaf extracts stimulate the skin and help heal minor cuts and burns. Cucina has also added sage and rosemary essential oils to act as an antibacterial and toner.Cucina

The packaging is so beautiful that these cleaners and moisturizers are worth leaving on the kitchen counter and will lend to a refined look to any décor. For example the regenerating hand cream made from Coriander and Olive tree is in a stoneware jar resembling traditional mustard containers which makes this the kitchen hand cream of choice by professional chefs.

These fragrant collections of decorative products inspired by the luscious Tuscan countryside make for a wonderful housewarming or hostess gift, treat for that special chef you know, or simply you.
