  • Base: Amber, Dark Musk

Home of the largest deposit of rare white gypsum on earth, White Sands National Monument spans over 275 square miles of the New Mexico desert, protecting the surreal, alien beauty of the one-of-a-kind dunefield.

45+ hour burn time

10 oz scented soy blend candle + a box of matches and wooden lid


THE ALL IMPORTANT FIRST BURN: With the first burn you are priming the candle for great performance. You may get smaller flames and slightly less scent throw, but that is normal. Make sure to let the candle burn until the melt pool reaches all sides of the candle before blowing out; typically 3 hours or so. Do not burn more than 4 hours.

TRIM YOUR WICKS: Trim your wicks to 1/4" before lighting each time. This will ensure your candle burns as clean, safe, and long as it should and is essential to a longer lasting, cleaner burning candle. Pick up a wick trimmer HERE.

Candle Snob That Never Writes Reviews

I received this candle as a gift. I loved it so much that I looked it up and was seriously shocked that it was $28. This candle is of comparable size and quality to my $60 candles. It's fragrant even without burning. It has a masculine, musky component, but the citrus balances it out, making it appropriate for any room in the house. I know I sound like I'm reviewing wine, not a candle, but that honestly feels appropriate because like a fine wine, this candle deserves appreciation. This will will now be my go-to candle for myself, my friends, and the I-don't-know-what-to-get-this-person-so-I'll-get-them-a-candle people in my life.

Nothing makes me feel as sensual as a Roosevelt Candle Co Candle

The first time was by accident, I stumbled in to a gift shop and there it was. I was shy with it at first, until I got it home where I opened it up and let it have its way with me. Now, I take them everywhere; warm bubble baths in the middle of the work day, who cares? It’s what’s good for ME. Now I find I even party with two or three at a time, with scents all over everything in my house. I have lost myself in them.
These candles have changed me, something inside of me will never be the same. I thank you, RCC, for giving me countless hours upon hours of pleasure and an open mind for exploration.


Enjoying my White Sands candle!! It smells amazing. Thank you!

White Sands = Heaven!

This is one of my FAVORITE candles from The Roosevelts Candle Co! I love how even when it isn't lit, I can still smell it faintly in the room and it is SO lovely! The candle burns beautifully and I get endless compliments when people come to visit!
