Skandinavisk's scented candle collection celebrates the uniqueness and diversity of Scandinavia. Each is hand-poured into a painted glass votive from a special blend of perfume and vegetable wax with a 100% cotton wick and engraved beechwood lid.
BÅL: Pronounced 'Borl', is a smokey reminder of the morning after the night before. Of summer campfires by the lake and sleeping under the stars, of roaring bonfires in the snow, glowing faces and shadows in the dark.
RO: Peace, calm and tranquility from the kingdoms of Denmark, Norway and Sweden. A subtle symphony of fresh grass and crumpled leaves, ambered woods and hidden blankets in the dunes.
FJORD: Coniferous forests, crashing waterfalls and abundant fruits magnify the drama of the Norwegian fjords. With joyous notes of woods and ripening orchards, wild berries, blackcurrants and raspberry flowers.
HAV: The endless coastlines of Scandinavia are surrounded by the cold waters of the North Atlantic, Baltic and Arctic seas. Infused with notes of water flora, driftwood, sea froth and fresh air.
KOTO: Koto is the traditional Finnish word for home. A cosy refuge from the rugged climate, an intimate space to refresh the soul. This KOTO collection is a collaboration from SKANDINAVISK & Design Bloggers United and blends delicate notes of amber with exotic jasmine, mandarin and vanilla.
HYGGE: Hygge, pronounced 'Hu-Gah' is Danish DNA, a reflection of the Scandinavian art of creating intimacy, fellowship and cosiness in the smallest everyday moments. With echoes of tea and baked strawberry cake, rose petals and wild mint.
KOBENHAVN: Kobenhavn is inspired by the urban bliss of the Danish capital, where bicycles, cobblestones and seafaring history mix in perfect symbiosis with contemporary city living. Notes of smokey tea, foraged berries, bicycle oil and a spray of irises.
NAT: Danish/Norwegian for 'night'. Midnight in the garden of Scandinavia. Echoes of a late evening at the summer house in the distant countryside where the fir trees tower over the silent lake and the elves dance seductively in the honeysuckle mist.
DAG: Scandinavian for 'day' and pronounced 'Dae'. Sun warms, breeze cools, the earth breathes again. Reflections on a Scandinavian garden in full bloom when the days never end, with buzzing herb gardens and colourful sprays of lily, violet and magnolia.
BÆR: Danish/Norwegian for 'berry'. Reminisces of family trips outdoors to forage for cloudberries, blueberries and ligonberries, of sweet-smelling reductions on the stove and warm, zingy sauces poured over ice-cream.
SKOG: Swedish/Norwegian for 'forest'. Boreal forests cover half of Scandinavia stretching unbroken from the far south to the Arctic Circle. A morning mist of pine needles and woodland lily of the valley, musk and aged leather.
