Slightly Bitter Candle

This Product Is: a candle with a tart, sweet and citrusy scent

Why We Love It: Heretic Slightly Bitter Candle is slightly bitter, and slightly sweet thanks to pink grapefruit and lemon, that blends with the scent of tomato leaves, petitgrain and ripe cassis berries. This tart and uplifting blend of citrus and botanicals is non-toxic and blended in a soy wax base with a lead-free cotton wick.

Notes: grapefruit, cassis, tomato leaf, lemon, timur berry, neroli, petitgrain

Our candles are made with 100% natural unbleached cotton wicks, which require special attention. Please make sure to trim the wick to 1/8″ before every use.

Radical Fragrance Transparency. This means the fragrance ingredients are fully disclosed to you (not hidden behind the word "fragrance", which is the norm). All ingredients are included in the section above.

This fragrance is comprised of (Click on a fragrance category for more info):

Essential Oils

Essential Oils

Authentic essential oils are physically extracted by steam or expression (cold pressing) of the skin of the fruit. Essential oils have not been chemically altered (via reaction, solvent extraction) from their natural state.

Certified Organic Fragrance

Certified Organic Fragrance

A blend of essential oils (see above) derived from plants that are grown in accordance with the USDA National Organic Program.

Natural Fragrance

Natural Fragrance

Natural fragrances are mixtures of aromatic raw materials. As opposed to a whole essential oil found in a plant, these chemicals are physically isolated from natural compounds, then blended together to create a scent. If only natural isolates are used, companies can declare the scent “natural.”

Naturally-Derived Fragrance

Naturally-Derived Fragrance

Fragrance ingredients that have been extracted using solvents (alcohol, petrochemicals, vegetable oils), or extracted by fermentation, or ingredients which may have a natural component but have been significantly processed.

Synthetic Fragrance

Unfragranced/Unscented

Ingredients which are new molecules, made in a laboratory. The majority of synthetic constituent ingredients are from petroleum byproducts. Synthetic “nature-identical” ingredients fall into this category as well. Credo allows synthetic fragrances as long as there are no Dirty List components.

What's Behind "Fragrance"?

US law does not require that companies be transparent about the ingredients in fragrance/parfum. Credo believes in your right-to-know. We require all brands to categorize the fragrance in each product (see chart above), and encourage brands to fully disclose all scent ingredients.

All products are cruelty-free and formulated without ingredients on The Dirty List™️. At Credo, "clean" goes even deeper. Learn more.

Gluten Free Alcohol Free Vegan

HERETIC PARFUM began with the choice to go against the grain and do something different.Our perfumes are composed of essential oils, absolutes, and concretes that are blended in organic, non-GMO grape and sugarcane alcohols using the same process used by perfumers hundreds of years ago - before synthetics took over the industry. The olfactory fingerprint of each individual plant, where it was grown and how it grew, gives these scents their character, mystery and beauty. These rare, authentic materials go far beyond the ‘cosmetic’ department and into the realms of homeopathy, ayurveda, mysticism and herbology.
