Label Designs for Pearl Candle Co.

I was approached by Pearl Candle Co. to design a series of labels for their limited edition scented candles featuring Hollywood stars throughout the ages.

This project had me researching the history of cinema, specifically the ghost stories of Hollywood. Who doesn’t love a good ghost story?

I had near complete creative freedom for this project. I was asked to use a specific colour palette, and a subject to adhere to for each label.

The First label (Clift)

Features Montgomery Clift. He is One of the first actors to allow his gay identity be disclosed upon his death.

Sightings of his ghost usually accompany the smell of tobacco and bay leaves.

That is why the label features a well dressed man with tobacco and bayleaf adorning his lapel.

The Second Label (Entwistle)

This next design features Peg Entwistle, and her tragic story involving the Hollywood Sign.

It’s said her ghost still haunts the park, and that before a sighting individuals smell gardenia. The label features the Hollywood H, and blooming gardenias.

The Third Label (Valentino)

The third label in the series features Rudolph Valentino. Credited as Hollywood’s first sex symbol. The scent was inspired by his beverage of choice, rose water tea.

The label features a stylized silhouette of a man enjoying a cup of tea, in rosy red colours.

It’s said if you leave roses at his grave, you’ll notice the smell of rosewater throughout the day.
