It’s that time of the year! Whether you’re cozying up on the couch with your fluffiest pillows from Z Gallerie, burning your favorite scent from Heritage House Candle Co, or cooking the ultimate holiday feast from Fresh Market, Perkins Rowe has everything you need to be home for the holidays!

We talked to a few people around the Rowe and on social media about being home for the holidays.  Here’s what they had to say!

Jasmine with Heritage House Candle Co.

Tell us about you!
My name is Jasmine Griffin. I am the owner of The Heritage House Candle Co. as a creative person, I started this venture in an effort to find a creative outlet. As I learned more about candle making, I realized how toxic and potentially harmful candle are that are sold to the masses. I wanted to start a candle company that champions high quality natural ingredients that are not harmful and actually smell wonderful. I also wanted to incorporate the love have have for my city and state. Therefore I decided to donate a portion of sales to higher education academics.

Also: my personal go to candle is indeed Christmas On The Bayou

Pick one: Woody or Sweet scented candles for the holidays?
A fantastic blend is the best! The most famous fragrances in the world are often complex. Fragrance notes can take your senses on a journey! The best fragrance can start off strong and robust and leave you with a delightful light finish. This is the philosophy of our fragrances at Heritage House.

What’s your go-to scent for the holidays?
Our go-to fragrance for the Holidays is Christmas on the Bayou: a wonderful blend of cypress, pine, and citrus. This is our best seller in the history of the company.

What makes Heritage House candles so special?
We are a grassroots company that started in Baton Rouge with a fold up table and a handmade tabletop black and white striped awning at our local Baton Rouge makers markets. Our attention to detail in producing non-toxic candles is our number one priority. The company also donates a portion of proceeds to academic scholarships and efforts, primarily focusing on historically black colleges and universities.

Which product in your store are you most excited about this holiday season?
We are excited about our Holiday Trio! Our 3 popular fragrances are inspired by our beautiful city and great state.

  • Christmas On The Bayou: The perfect Christmas fragrance with notes of cypress and citrus
  • Beignets With Santa: A popular take on the Christmas tradition, cookies with Santa
  • Creole Cocoa Mint: A lovely rendition to the cultural Creole tradition of hot chocolate

Anything else?
We are so blessed to live in such an amazing city that champions local artisans and small businesses. We encourage everyone to continue to support local makers that celebrate our unique Louisiana culture.
