Name: Peace of Paradise
Currently living: Collins & 8th and Etsy
Occupation: Fragrant, hand-poured candle

I'm looking for... someone to spend a relaxing evening with. Must prefer low lighting, a long, slow burn, creamy pastel shades, 100 percent soy wax, and natural, cosmetic grade scents, all made in the U.S.

People would describe me as... romantic and soothing in four delicious aromas: Leilani (fresh and floral), Rosabela (a blend of rose and baby powder), Alamea (bright yuzu) and Pikake (sweet Hawaiian jasmine).

Peace of Paradise Our first date would involve... a definite spark. With all the right moves, we could even get physical. Once things heat up, I'll melt into a pool of enriched vitamin E oil that can be smoothed onto your skin for a stimulating massage.

My background includes... months of testing by Junko Kobashigawa and Yuka Kato, two former high-fashion executives (Donna Karan and Gucci are past employers) who hail from Tokyo and now live on Oahu.

Why we'd be perfect together... I'm non-toxic and biodegradable. When we meet, I'll wear a dainty ocean shell to remind you of the ocean.

$25 each. Meet Peace in Paradise candles at Collins & 8th, 560 Pensacola St., Suite 105, (808) 593-9696, or on Etsy.
