CANDLES MADE OF ART AND SCENT
Aromatic candles contribute to the well-being, and because of this they are part of many homes. There are companies that have brought luxury, art and creativity to this segment. If a delicate fragrance is combined with candlelight, one that awakens the senses, the ambience becomes even more inviting.
Candles are extensively used as décor, and made with great attention and detail work by the brands, so as to fit each desired ambience. They can be used to promote relaxation, whether after a week of intense work or at a moment dedicated to a massage. Having a candle illuminating a space with a dim light, indeed awakens sensations of tranquillity, and serenity. In fact, many of the brands that sell home products feature candles in their section dedicated exclusively to décor, which are essential elements in a cosy atmosphere.
Tom Dixon is a company dedicated to the marketing of furniture, lighting and other accessories since 2002. Inspired by the British heritage, they launch collections in cities such as Milan, New York, London, and Paris, and distribute to 65 countries. The "London Scented Candle Medium" is one of the presented candles, and it distinguishes itself because it reminds the red brick, and the London parks. A copper vessel holds an aroma that refers to crocuses, nettles and the salty smell of the Thames at Dagenham. The candle is sealed with a solid Morwad marble lid.
