Stage 1
Do you remember how you reacted to the breakup when you were young? Simply abandoned everything behind and did whatever you want, or just didn't do anything. The heart-breaking feeling was so deep that you feel like it's the end of the world. 

We use the Chinese word "苦" means "bitter". It's like "sorrow" to refer to Stage 1 - the darkness, the sadness.

Notes: clove, neem 
Character: bitter
Net weight: 190g / 6.7oz
Burn time: ~40 hours

The packaging of BreakUp series is in black with wax seal applied.
Sealing wax is a metaphor for an indelible trace, breakup is a piece of memory that just like un-erasable mark. 

Breakup series is a collaboration of Shabibi Sheep Workshop and slash & parallel.

Shabibi Sheep Workshop is an artisanal fair-faced concrete brand in Hong Kong. They launched concrete candle - breakup series in February 2019 and that was a limited item for one month only. Breakup series consists of 3 candles, representing 3 stages. Besides the scents of the 3 candles are different, from strong to mild, the texture of the concrete is also different, from raw to smooth, these symbolising how a person has his/her stage of mind changed after worn away by “time”. 

Launching the breakup series during the Valentine’s day season as Feb 14th should not solely contains sweet or pink.
Valentine’s day is just one day. 
However breakup is a stage that takes you an unknown period of time to get through. 

slash & parallel fine-tuned the scents and the BreakUp series becomes a regular collection.

Candle caring tips
Allow the wax to melt to the edge of the ceramic cup on the first burn to create a full “melt pool”. This is to ensure the candle is burnt all the way to the edge instead of just burning down the middle and creating a tunnel.
Do not burn your candle longer than 3 hours at a time. 
Trim the wick to 3mm before every burn.

Always burn candles within sight.
Never burn candles near flammable items.
Keep candles away from children and pets.
The ceramic container will heat up when the candle is lit. So do not touch or move the candle around or you may get injured. Please also ensure the surface where you put your candle is heat-resistant.
