The elegance of this candle is evident in every aspect of its packaging. The secondary outer packaging contains the main product label while the candle itself features only a small sticker.

This delicate product label features a light line border with surrounding dots and minimal content. It uses a variety of colors found in the outer packaging to tie everything together nicely.
