Who is Hesperia?

The Hesperides were the nymphs of the evening and golden light, who were associated with the western edge of the world and the setting sun. These nymphs were tasked with guarding the mythical Garden of the Hesperides, where they tended to a tree bearing golden apples given to Hera on her wedding day by the primordial goddess Gaia. There were originally only three Hesperides but the number later expanded to four or seven, with each poet giving them slightly different names. Hesiod, for example, names the four "clear voices Hesperides" as Aigle (or Aegle, meaning "dazzling light"), Erytheia (or Erytheis), Hesperia ("sunset glow"), and Arethusa.

The Garden of the Hesperides was considered a sacred and magical place, often depicted as a lush and exotic orchard. In various myths, the hero Heracles (Hercules) was assigned the labor of retrieving the golden apples as one of his Twelve Labors while a golden apple stolen by Eris eventually (through a dramatic beauty contest that would make Sandra Bullock blush) led to the start of the Trojan War. The Hesperides were often depicted as daughters of either the Titan Atlas or the god Hesperus, who personified the evening star.


Our Hesperia Candle captures the spirit of the Hesperides, the legendary trio of nymphs who tend to the garden of golden apples at the edge of the world. Hesperia will transport you to the sacred grove tended by these enchanting beings - crisp apple notes are a tribute to the golden fruit that was their charge, while the aroma of fallen leaves and cedar pay homage to the ancient trees that sheltered their mythical haven. Yet among these earthly scents, a playful dance of cinnamon and maple swirls in the air, evoking the whimsy of these beautiful guardians.

    Fall in a jar!

    This candle smells delicious and burns perfectly! It’s tough to find the perfect fall candle with all the highly potent, overly sweet smelling ones everywhere. But this one, this is the one. The perfect blend of apples & outdoors all in one. Not to mention the wood wick, it creates that autumn ambiance everyone is looking for while drinking your pumpkin spice latte. Haha! Great buy!
