Okay, so letâ€™s talk about candles. They may be one of the most overly indulgent ways to blow your budget everâ€¦.and for the most part, I burn IKEA vanilla candles in the office to keep it smelling fresh.
But! If youâ€™re looking for an extra special thrill and want your space to smell like an upscale boutique (haha), I have a new brand to share with you: Overose.
I found out about this mysterious French brand a few weeks ago at Spartan, a housewares boutique here in Portland. They had a few of the candles on display and I immediately gravitated towards Guaiasilk (and still have no clue what that means). The scent smells like nothing Iâ€™ve ever encountered before and maybe thatâ€™s part of the appeal â€” itâ€™s oddly luxurious and bizarre and addictive with a woodsy, unisex scent.
The candles themselves are beautiful in their uniformly colored simplicity and I am really into the styling of their most recent campaign â€” the mix of florals and textures makes me want to have a dedicated photo studio space to experiment with props and lighting.
So, thatâ€™s my latest obsession when it comes to candles. What about you? What are your favorite brands?
