I use more than 10 kg of candles per year, as they have been my wellbeing secret for years. Candles create a warm ambience and their scents transport us to better places. For my first Taha candle, I wanted to share a special trip I took to French Polynesia and the vanilla isle known as Taha’a.
Its rich, abundant and seemingly limitless vegetation impressed and inspired me. Because he is the genius master perfumer who infused creative freedom into French perfumery to produce fragrances with character, I asked Francis Kurkdjian to manifest my Polynesian memories in a perfume.
What is the Taha Candle fragrance?
He translated them into a heavenly fragrance of sunny ylang-ylang, tiare flowers and frangipani blossoms with notes of almond and vanilla. The appealing and intoxicating scent of Taha’a indeed transports us back to the island
For the candle holder, I wanted to create a one of a kind glass…
So I decided to call upon the skill of an artisan who paints each and every one of his glass creations by hand. The red and gold recall the blazing sun that bathes the island in light and each candle holder is a custom original.
