4 Stunning home fragrances to beautify your home (and reinvigorate your senses)
Les Parfums Louis Vuitton–Perfumes for the Home
A fan of Louis Vuitton's range of evocative scents? Now your abode can smell equally as amazing with the French brand's new collection of perfumes for the home. Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud drew inspiration from landscapes he stumbled upon while traveling for four fragrances: L'Air du Jardin, a floral composition of rose centifolia that oozes elegance and refinement; Île Blanche, comprising orange jasmine sambac, neroli, cardamom, and citronella with a dash of tea; Feuilles d'Or, a crisp scent of Indonesian patchouli, Virginia cedar and subtle nuances of geranium, incense and Peruvian balsam; and lastly, Dehors Il Neige, a festive fragrance of star anise, cinnamon, and raspberry.
Worth noting is the handmade ceramic containers that the candles are encased in. Designed by Marc Newson, the fragrant wax come with a hand-sewn leather handle, a gold-toned metal lid (that can be used as a base), and a wick coated in a bold hue, specially hand-painted in Grasse, France. Inject a luxurious sentiment to your living quarters with these chic candles.
Diptyque Bird Diffuser
This head-turning centrepiece from Diptyque isn't your average diffuser—most evidently, it boasts a seriously chic metallic structure in the shape of a bird. Exclusively made for Diptyque's Collection 34, this bird diffuser was designed by Paris-based studio Jean-Marc Gady and inspired by the bird "callers" for hunting that Desmond Knox-Leet and Christiane Gautrot decked with their designs, and sold in the shop of 34 boulevard Saint Germain. The fragrance concentrate is located at the base, while the capillarity that forms the bird subtly diffuses the scent.
Aesop Brass Oil Burner
Mod, minimalist lovers, Aesop's Brass Oil Burner is a looker especially made for you. Designed for Aesop by Studio Henry Wilson, the burner is crafted from solid brass in Australia via a traditional technique of using wax moulds to cast metal objects. The unique aspect about this process is that each vessel develops a brass patina that evolves over time, allowing for its own character to form. As if this utilitarian stunner isn't impressive enough, the design's inspiration holds enough weight to rival its actual weight (2.4lbs, in case you were wondering)—it was inspired by asymmetry, the imperfect beauty of pouring molten brass and the quiet yet meaningful ritual of lighting a candle.
Tip: Use it with Aesop's range of Oil Blends, Anouk, Béatrice, Catherine and Isabella and prepare lounge in utter bliss.
Jo Malone London Honeysuckle & Davana Home Candle
Jo Malone's latest scent Honeysuckle & Davana candle is one for those who can't get enough of enigmatic floral fragrances that bring an English countryside during summertime to mind. If a spritz of the body fragrance doesn't cut it for you, light one of these and place it in your powder room or bedside table to truly soak up the scent—an alluring combination of honeysuckle, rose, davana and a touch of moss.
