Tricks of the Trade: A signature scent
To truly create a sense of completeness, every home should have a signature scent.
By engaging all of the senses when interacting with interiors you can create an atmosphere that truly reflects your personal style. The olfactory qualities of a room are sometimes overlooked, but the addition of a signature scent will tie together the visual and tactile design elements of your interior spaces. To ensure a scent that speaks of luxury, comfort and sophistication, it is paramount to invest in quality candles.
My personal fave is the Odalisque candle by Parisian candle ateliers Cire Trudon.
Cire Trudon have been producing candles for the French aristocracy since the 18th century, and their time honored approach, supreme attention to detail and high quality ingredients make for the most sublime candles.
The Odalisque is described as ‘Enclosed in citrus and wood bark, the orange blossom weaves a painter’s dream from which escapes the pale volute of smoke from a narghile.’ I classify it as having top notes of lemon and orange, heart notes of orange blossom, and base notes of cade and vanilla. I particularly like how this vegetable-based wax candle with pure cotton wick is biodegradable, allergen free and contains no pesticides. Super sophisticated…and housed within a beautiful hand blown glass vessel. I’m proud to stock these beautiful candles and recommend them for creating that perfect, finishing touch to your home.
