Labor day may have passed, but California still has a plethora of sunny days to enjoy, so we consider it the ‘unofficial’ end of Summer. Either way, whether it’s because the kids are back in school or your Summer activities are winding down- September is a good time to spruce up the home. So we wanted to educate you on one of our newest product lines that will do just that: Skandinavisk–modern designed candles and diffusers out of, you guessed it, Scandinavia.
It's worth noting that Scandinavian has the world's happiest people, and they also happen to be the world's largest nation of candle users. The collection is designed in Denmark in a Copenhagen showroom, the perfume is produced in Grasse on the French Riviera, and the collection is hand-poured in France. With the clean, minimalist design that Scandinavians are known for, these scented products visually blend seamlessly into any room. Read on for details about the specific styles and scents we have available at our Encinitas location.
SKANDINAVISK Candles + Diffusers
For the Fall, we are offering 2 sizes of candles. No matter which size you choose, each candle contains an engraved beechwood lid inside the box, designed to be used as a base for the lit candle and as a snuffer to extinguish the flame.
Scented Candles - Small
The small candles, 6.7 oz to be exact, are made up of a vegetable wax blend: a base of RSPO-certified sustainable palm wax with a touch of soy and coco waxes. RSPO stands for Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil; palm oil is responsible for large-scale forest conversion in the tropics and extensive carbon emissions; RSPO-certified companies are committed to harvesting palm berries and palm oil with the least amount of forest destruction. Each candle is hand-poured into a painted glass votive, the cotton wick will provide 50 hrs of burn time.
Scented Vase Candles - Large
The scented vase candles, 21.16 oz, feature 4 wicks- all of which are 100% cotton. With 75 hrs burn time, these will last you well into Fall. Made up of vegetable wax and food-grade mineral wax, these are hand-poured into a mouth-blown glass vase for a sleek look.
Experience the liquid side of Scandinavia. These minimally designed diffusers will provide you with 3 months of scent time.
Fjord (Norwegian) [F –YO R]
Coniferous forests, crashing waterfalls and abundant fruits magnify the drama of the Norwegian fjords. With joyous notes of woods and ripening orchards, blackcurrants and raspberry flowers.
Ro (Scandinavian for ‘tranquility) [R O]
Peace, calm tranquility from the kingdoms of Norway, Sweden and Denmark. A subtle symphony of fresh cut grass and crumpled leaves, ambered woods and hidden blankets in the dunes.
Koto (Old Finnish for ‘cosy at home’) [KO –TO]
A sanctuary from the rugged Nordic climate, an intimate space to refresh the soul. Promising delicate notes of Baltic amber and jasmine blended with exotic mandarin and vanilla.
