Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
In July 2009, married couple Louis and Yvoni (who asked that their last names not be used) moved from Greece to America with plans of opening a candle shop. “It’s very hard to open a very small shop in Greece,” Louis says. “There are mostly large department stores or chains.” Now, the pair has settled into their LES boutique, which features colorful scented candles ($19–$140) lining bright-orange shelves. Sobota handmakes the candles in the basement workroom, layering products of nature (flowers, palms, dried fruit pods, bark, etc.) in the wax. Some standouts include a small round ivory gardenia-scented candle with woven grapevines and birch branch accents ($23); a rectangular mahogany-scented rust orange vessel with four tea lights and a pinecone decoration ($60); and a light burgundy rectangular piece that’s clove-scented and features sea sponge, preserved wax rose, palm leaves and salt stones ($43).
