THE IN-TRAY

The two MECCA candles Billie Eilish is burning in iso

If you’re working from home and don’t have your screen split with the latest livestream; you’re either lying, or you’re doing it wrong. So as I worked with Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas’ Pay It Forward livestream on in the background, I couldn’t help but notice the green-rooted crooner fidgeting with—and inhaling the aromas of—two very familiar candles.

Like many, our obsession with everything Eilish does and wears is real, so we zoomed in, de-pixelated and squinted with much intent to unearth the MECCA-stocked candles keeping Eilish and her family zen during isolation in their Los Angeles home (and soon, you’ll find them in my home too).

Pin 12 by Le Labo

It comes as no surprise to us that a Le Labo candle sits atop Eilish’s coffee table. Undeniably cool and authentic—and a little bit extra—the only surprising factor is that it’s not Santal.

Pin 12 (pin coming from pine, and 12 from the number of notes in this scent), is a warm and full yet delicate fragrance, combining aromatic pine woods with musk and amber for a calming aroma that just feels like home.

It’s the perfect scent for iso; by means of aromatherapy, the scent of pine has been shown to reduce stress and balance your mood.

Metafisica Candle by Fornasetti

Quirky luxury (with the quality to back it up) is the very essence of the Fornasetti brand, and the same could be said about Eilish, whose baggy, gen-z street aesthetic is made up of one-of-a-kind pieces by Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Balenciaga. Her music stacks up to the same precedent, too.

This unique candle bears the face of Piero Fornasetti’s muse, Lina Cavalieri, an internationally renowned artist who lived at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries—the window opens to reveal a smaller picture of the actress, nodding to the relationship between mind and reality (which begs the question, ‘when we all fall asleep, where do we go?').

The candle itself features the brand’s signature Otto fragrance; another warm scent, this time smoky with notes of thyme, lavender, cedarwood, incense, birch and labdanum.
