Royalty, London and Orientalist are three candles created to capture the essence of the travelling, trading and nostalgic past with the vibrant future of British life. They form part of Eclectic by Tom Dixon, a new accessories collection from the British design brand. Each candle is contained within a hand-spun vessel formed in brass, copper or nickel. Using a process of acid-etching, each vessel is intricately marked with the scent's name. After use as a candle they can each be re-worked as a decorative design vessel.
Scented Candle: London
The smell of red brick and London parks with crocuses and nettles, and the salty smell of the Thames at Dagenham. Contained in a copper vessel.
Scented Candle: Orientalistist
The faint memory an Indian wedding with rose petal garlands - giant cinnamon sticks on the beach stalls and the musky smells of the chinese herbal market. Contained in a nickel vessel.
Scented Candle: Royalty
A reminiscence of tea time with a pot of Earl Grey scones with strawberry jam and the drive home in a '52 Bentley with tatty leather seats. Contained in a brass vessel.
