Kinnickinnic. Pronounced "kin-nick-a-nick"
Kinnickinnic Avenue is the main artery through Big White Yeti's Bay View neighborhood in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Big White Yeti studio is located on this street. Kinnickinnic is an Ojibwe word which literally means "what is mixed" which, ironically, is exactly how they make their candles. They mix fragrance and melted wax.
There are a lot of reasons they call this Yeti Camp Kinnickinnic. They really love their neighborhood. And at night in the summer and fall, you can almost always smell a bonfire from someone's backyard fire pit. That smell- campfire- is so evocative. Everyone has a memory tied to that scent of pine and smoke and resin.
It took them a long time to get this Yeti right. They tried a lot of different combinations to make this candle smell like a campfire without smelling heavy or overbearingly like smoke. The notes in this candles are fresh pine, smokey incense, pine resin.
This candle is hand poured and contains 100% soy wax (no chemical or paraffin additives), a cotton wick, and fine fragrance oils.
Soy burns remarkably clean and long- expect this guy to burn for 25 – 30 hours. And when it’s gone, simply wipe out the tin and use it to hold little treasures.
Its dimensions are:
Height: 1 11/16" (42mm)
Diameter: 2 13/16" (72mm)
6 ounce tin
