THE WORLD'S FIRST STRIPTEASE CANDLE:
The theatre of art and fantasy come together in a rhapsody of mad science and sensory pleasure. A patent-pending thermal reactive ink disappears when heated and reappears when cool. Inspired by burlesque, vintage perfume, and the naughty barware that emerged from the 1940’s, the bougie burlesque will ignite the imagination and seduce the senses. Light your candle, sit back and enjoy the show. The longer the candle burns and the hotter it gets, the more will be revealed. Once extinguished and things cool off, the ink will magically reappear until you’re ready to heat things up again.
THE ART OF TRANSFORMATION:
The writhing snakes and burgeoning pomegranate design was inspired by the mythological tale of Persephone and her trip to the underworld. The snakes symbolize transformation while the pomegranates represent the forbidden fruit. Fragrance in essence is invisible, it lacks both shape and form yet has the instantaneous ability to transform the mundane into the extraordinary. The Bougie Burlesque is an eccentric vision that celebrates beauty, scent, and sensuality in its many forms.

Growing up in a suburb of Los Angeles, Gia always knew she wanted to have a career in the fashion industry, so she pursued representation and was signed by Wilhelmina NY in 2013. She credits famed fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth for helping her get her big break, shooting her for the cover of Galore Magazine in 2014 and later for the March 2015 cover of Playboy Magazine. Gia is most recognized for her natural voluptuous curves and retro style. When she's not working as a model or touring the world doing burlesque, she can be found sifting through local flea markets or driving around Hollywood in her 57' Thunderbird.SHOP ROSE BUD
