Since we can’t always escape to a faraway land, introducing a sense of worldliness into our homes can be a great alternative. With that in mind, and with spring in full bloom, we turn to candle company Skandinavisk for their latest Spring 2014 “Scents of Scandinavia” line.
After launching their first candle collection in fall 2013, Skandinavisk impresses us again with five new aromas that each pay homage to a unique aspect of Scandinavian culture. The collection includes the floral scent of a Swedish summer (Sommar), the breezy scent of the archipelagos (Ö), the scent of Scandinavian tranquility (Ro), the urban bliss of one of the world’s most desirable cities (København) and the drama of the Norwegian fjords (Fjord).
Much more than just wax and cotton wick, the young brand “continues to share their love of Scandinavia and its unique culture of “hygge”—a word untranslatable in English that describes cozy intimacy, gathering and day-to-day moments that nourish the soul,” illustrated popular blog site Cool Hunting. Coinciding with the arrival of spring, their new line of candles presents the perfect opportunity to rejuvenate and accentuate any room in your living space. By allowing the gentle aroma and soft warm glow to flood your senses, you may find yourself far away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles.
Skandinavisk candles burn for a “leisurely” 45 hours and come protected by a beautifully-painted glass votive. You can find Skandinavisk candles at Huset in Venice (1316 Abbot Kinney Blvd.) and online.
