Who says that you can't drink Rosé wine in the winter?
We've broken the rules once again with our new candle - Notes of Rosé.
This incredible, luxury fragrance was designed in collaboration with Perfumer Christina Christie of one of the world's leading fragrance houses - Takasago. As Winter blew in, Christina and I tried to defy the chilly New York air with glasses of French Rosé wine from Provence. We just couldn't bear to say goodbye to warm days and the crispness of a perfect Rosé. So as the snow began to fall, we sniffed and sipped - and captured the fleeting season in this new and exquisitely original fragrance.
The final blend is a sophisticated, complex aroma of BLACKCURRANT, DAMASK ROSE PETALS, HERBES DE PROVENCE & WHITE SUEDE.
Our new home fragrance is wonderful for dinner parties and wine tastings - and of course to brighten up a winter's day. Just like our fine fragrance, the scent pairs perfectly with a glass wine, emulating all of the accords of the wine in your glass. We suggest pairing with a Provencal style Rosé.
This soy blend candle with eco-wick burns beautifully clean and luxuriously fragrant for 30 hours, in reusable post-recycled glass. Each candle is hand-poured in our scent studio.

& a very special thank you to Giostra, a favorite restaurant and wine bar on the very edge of NYC, where Christina and I escaped over glasses of wine and discover a perfect blend.
