I have to admit that two years ago I couldn’t care less about scented candles. For me a scented candle was something models took with them in their travels to make them feel at home (according to several magazines, not that I have any models around) or something a British grandma would love to recive as a present in her brithday (according to my personal experience with British grandmothers). But since we live in Germany, I love candles, I need candles and I buy lots of candles.
We have particularly picky noses so finding a fragance for our home that we both love has been more than difficult. After five years living together we have found it, the search is over. And our home smells like heaven. Actually according to the official drescription of the scent, it smells like a handful of grass in the middle of the forest, but it’s like heaven to us :) The name of this fantastic aroma is Saint Joseph, from Hommâge d’ipuro. They have another four home scents, but this one is just what we were looking for: a little bit of coriander, lemon, bergamot and cinnamon, a heart note of sandalwood and lavender and a base of musk and violet. You can order it online and the package is beautiful. Oh, and they also have scented candles that would make a lovely house warming present!
