The Courlander Story

Washing dogs with “Pop”, Cape Town 1978.

Just the hint of pipe tobacco wafting in the breeze can bring childhood memories flooding back. Don’t we all have a story about someone we loved who smoked a pipe? Here’s mine.

Long ago in a faraway land - known then as Rhodesia - my grandfather mixed, by hand, his own signature tobacco blend.

He’d sample each batch in a small clay pipe. Adding a pinch of brown sugar or a dash of ground dried plum until the smell and taste were just as he remembered.

Granddad is a remarkable man. This candle is my tribute to him. Hand-crafted with the essence of his one-of-a-kind tobacco blend, it burns with the same fire that sparked his clay tasting pipe more than a half century ago.

Its aroma will fill your room, allowing your thoughts to wander to simpler days. As mine do, every single time.

What makes it smell so good?

Blended Tobacco

A house rests on its foundation. A tobacco blend rests on quality cured tobacco.

Brown Sugar

Brown sugar imparts a smooth sweetness that lingers in the air.

Anise Seed

The sharp licorice bite of anise keeps the blend from veering too far from its roots.

Dried Plum

A subtle hint of tart, sun-kissed plum was my Grandfather’s secret ingredient.
