Collar City Candles is named for its hometown: Troy once ruled the nation when it came to detachable collars. Today, the small city is home to a growing number of small-batch artisanal producers. The husband-and-wife team behind Collar City, Josh and Jamie Wallbank, began their venture in 2004 when the holiday gift of a candle-making kit changed their lives. A dozen years later, they’re still at it, making three types of richly colored and scented nontoxic candles from palm wax and paraffin with all-cotton wicks. Choose from a bright green Bartlett pear-scented pillar; three types of aromatherapy candles in Mason jars (Revive, Refresh, and Relax); and four scented candles in status jars (honeysuckle and cedar, pear and freesia, mahogany and teakwood, and cappuccino).
