As we head into chilly months, inject your home with warm, soothing scents that cast an amber glow amid your space. Cozy up to wood, smoke, and birch tar notes from D.S. & Durga’s portable fireplace candle that’s the next best thing to sitting next to an open blaze. For those who prefer spicy accords, turn to saffron coupled with vanilla and dark amber, which can be found in Byredo’s Safran candle housed in a caramel colored glass vessel.
Looking for a candle that doubles as a jewel accent for your room? Baccarat’s geometric-cut crystal holder resembles a sculptural décor piece. Strike a match, light the wick, and watch the carved facets create a dance of reflective flickering light. Speaking of eye-catching packaging, look to Buly 1803 – the cult favorite Paris-based beauty boutique founded by multi hyphenated French-Moroccan Ramdane Touhami and his wife Victoire de Taillac-Touhami. The brand’s Campagne d’Italie candle comes infused with fresh bergamot and warmed oak and nutmeg that’s beautifully encased in a marble vessel and topped with a bell jar. Speaking to Vogue Arabia (while on a remote island south of Japan), Touhami shares his take on warm scents ideal for the cold season, “For winter, I lean towards woody scents and burning smells that remind me of a crackling fireplace.”
Fragrance has the power to transport you to a time and place. Head to Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula with Coqui Coqui’s tobacco scented candle that will pepper the air with a smoky essence, or, create a salon atmosphere in your home with Frédéric Malle’s Cafe Society candle. Enclosed in a red glass jar, it recalls Editions de Parfums – Malle’s collection of original scents in collaboration with the world’s top perfumers.
