Our sense of smell can evoke associations and memories of people and places. A beautiful scent encourages relaxation to achieve greater personal balance and the opportunity to capture a special moment where time stands still.
This selection of exquisite candles offers a wonderful combination of soy or beeswax and specially selected pure essential oils distilled from plants and flowers. Gorgeously presented in thoughtfully crafted re-usable containers. Whether it’s Spring’s awakening, the lightness of Summer, the mellowness of Autumn, or the crispness of Winter, be inspired by the perfumers’ achievement in creating such intoxicating aromatic combinations for our enjoyment throughout the Seasons.
Be carried away by a pure heady fragrance; breathe deeply and enjoy the benefits of living in the moment.

This gorgeous candle collection was created in collaboration with New York-based Joya Studio. Each vessel is cast in porcelain and features a celestial relief design. The candles blend natural soy and beeswax with vegetable oil. Each candle fragrance suggests a complex combination of plant and flower essences.
These beautiful handmade porcelain holders contain eco soya wax in wonderfully uplifting organic fragrance combinations – Indian lemongrass, English lavandin, and Italian bergamot. The organic, scented wax can be used on the skin as the wax is cooling. The porcelain vessel becomes translucent when the candle is burning and is accented with a stunning gold lip. Vessels can be refilled by Abalon, and can also be purchased empty for use as tea light candles.
