HNDSM has created its ‘Be Well’ scented candle as a tribute to New York and the people who live here. It’s a reflection of living in an exceptional city: the grind of the environment, the grit to endure, the ambition that is commonplace in the population, and the inspiring energy that envelops you. This scent? It’s a nostalgic combination of oak wood, leather, smoky Scotch, and exceptional company.

Get ready for the Year of the Tiger – a symbol of strength, bravery, and overcoming evil. New Zealand born, New York based artist Clare Price has painted two exquisite, large-scale works – Tiger Right and Tiger Left – a bold, intensely colored pair that surely promise good fortune for the year to come. Price says of her work: “I am drawn to the imagery I find campy, fabulous, daring, and sometimes a bit spooky. I love using bold color and I try to create work that brings joy and has an element of intrigue.”
"Rising up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive."
