Eclectic Orientalist Candle Medium by Tom Dixon
There are a series of intangibles that can be just as important in interior-design as colour, luminosity and shape. Often, the most potent first impression and subsequent memory of a space can be its smell. This scent collection evokes historical memories of British life, of travelling and trading across the globe and returning to the gritty smells of modern international London.
Orientalist captures the faint memory of an Indian wedding with rose petal garlands, giant cinnamon sticks on beach stalls and the musky smells of the Chinese herbal market.
Tom Dixon candles are made in the UK from 50% natural ingredients (50% natural soy, 50% paraffin wax) and contain 10% fragrance - a much higher level compared to the standard 1-3%, meaning the scent is stronger and will last longer.
