Candleberry Re-releases Lauren Fragrance in Honor of Lauren Bells

Candleberry Candle will be releasing a limited quantity of a previous fragrance, "Lauren," in honor of Lauren Bells. Lauren passed away five years ago at the age of four and a half from a very rare cancer called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG). DIPG is a fast moving cancer that causes a tumor to develop in the brain stem. Because of its placement, the tumor is inoperable. 

Lauren's aunt, Tina Bells, recently contacted Candleberry looking for the fragrance that was available earlier in the year, but has since been discontinued. She explained that her niece, Lauren, passed away five years ago this September from the aggressive disease, and that her family would very much like to find the fragrance again. 

Because Candleberry had a small amount of wax and scent left over from the first round of production, they have decided to use the remaining materials to create a limited supply of the fragrance, so Lauren will be returning to shelves soon. 

The candle was originally tinted purple, and will remain so in honor of Lauren's favorite color. In addition, the scent will be available only in 26-ounce jars and Candleberry will be donating a portion of the profits from each candle to the American Cancer Society.
