A fragrance inspired by the most peculiar of places, Oakmoss began with the reminiscent smell of vintage Brut Aftershave, stripped to create a powerful symphony of clean and crisp notes. Laid with a base of warm wood, it’s tied together with a touch of lavender to accentuate a brighter, botanical quality. Almost like walking through a moss-studded forest with the lingering mist of a vintage, tiled shower. Like we said, peculiar.
A modern classic with a cult following, it’s no easy feat to differentiate a sandalwood scent; we designed our Santalum as a challenge, both to ourselves and to those around us. In a way, it’s our character statement: a scent that stands on its own with some of the most hyped and exclusive fragrances on the market, but without the markup.
The most interesting scent in the world. Imagine smoking a great cigar seated in a leather chair, enjoying an enriching conversation with a close friend, all in a dark, hardwood-covered lounge room; that’s what we’ve bottled here.
MEET THE MAKER
The idea for creating candles in reusable cocktail glasses was born in 2015, when Founder, Steve Soderholm, was home from traveling the world as a touring drummer. Inspired by a childhood spent in the Minnesota North Woods, Steve set out to develop rich, earthy fragrances that could emulate the finest scents found in nature while also elevating the experience of a room.
He soon mastered the fragrances he always dreamt of finding in the store but never could, pouring each of his finished candles into a perfectly-weighted cocktail glass—designed to be both reusable and collectable. Having found the key to combining his passion for creating inviting spaces and well-crafted whiskey drinks for his friends and family, his off-the-road hobby quickly grew into a full-time gig. His sought-after candles have since expanded into a personal fragrance line that continues to evolve, creating loyal purveyors worldwide.
Ranger Station’s goal is to provide an aromatic experience that both grounds you and transcends the confines of your daily life. Each candle is designed to be an alluring additive in any room it’s lit, and each personal fragrance an unforgettable accessory.
