These candles and incense sticks want to evoke famous architecture

We all know what Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West looks like. The real question is, what does it smell like? Yield, a design studio out of St. Augustine, Florida, has the answer, and it comes in the form of incense sticks or candles.

The Wright scent is part of Yield’s new line of architecturally-inspired incense and candles, which are formulated to evoke the smell of famous architects’ buildings and homes.

The incense designed for Wright’s winter house smells appropriately of dusty rose and warm sand. Another, Scarpa, is inspired by Carlo Scarpa’s Brion Tomb and Sanctuary in Italy and smells like palo santo and leather. Meanwhile Entenza—named for John Entenza, who sponsored Ray and Charles Eames’ Case Study Home No. 9 in Southern California—is meant to capture the breezy essence of California’s coast with eucalyptus, rosemary, and birch.

All of the scents come in incense packs and candles that have terrazzo-style soy wax chips inspired by the colors of the building’s surroundings. Yield also makes a line of candles that capture the aroma of the landmarks around its St. Augustine studio, if Florida-inspired scents are more your style.
