The return of daylight savings time, the days getting shorter, the first cold weather…the end of October is the ideal moment to rediscover the magic of scented candles, giving every home a more intimate and relaxed atmosphere. According to an ancient yoga technique, for example, closely contemplating for a few minutes the flame of a candle, whilst concentrating on the minute movements of the light breathing in the same air we breathe, helps one abandon earthly preoccupations in order to concentrate on the beauty of the moment of tranquillity one is currently enjoying.
If the candles are also scented, this effect is complemented by the characteristics of the essences composing the scented bouquets released by the heat of the candle, which are listed in four principal categories on Acqua dell’Elba’s catalogue.
“MARINE FRAGRANCES” CANDLES
Together with the wavering light of the candles, the marine fragrances which are released by these candles help to recall the typical summer atmosphere of an “al fresco” dinner, enjoying a beach illuminated by starlight while the wind blends the scents of the waves with those of the natural environment facing the sea.
Sensations and memories which acquire new vigour thanks to candles which come in three fragrances: MARE, BREZZA MARINA and ISOLA D’ELBA.
“FLORAL FRAGRANCES” CANDLES The typically Mediterranean inebriating scent of jasmine, the rare, natural elegance of the lily of the sands, the classic fragrances of violet and orchid…In Acqua dell’Elba’s scented candles of the FIORI, GIGLIO DELLE SABBIE, and PROFUMI DEL MONTE CAPANNE variants these aromas intertwine and blend with woody notes, sometimes of chestnut, sometimes of the Mediterranean Maquis, in order to bring back to every home the beneficial effect of contact with nature.
“CITRUS FRAGRANCES” CANDLES
Stimulating for creativity and capable of boosting positive attitudes, the fragrance of lemons is the principal characteristic of the scented candle LIMONAIA DI SANT'ANDREA, available as all the other candles in the various 180, 425 and 1260 gram versions, in order to be lit in rooms of every size, from the kids’ bedroom to the home office, from the living room to a conference room.
“SPICY CHRISTMAS FRAGRANCES” CANDLES
Since the holiday season is fast approaching us, it also becomes indispensable to recall the fragrance of NOTE DI NATALE, a magical bouquet composed of oranges, tangerines, honey and cinnamon, nuts and woods of the Mediterranean Maquis which, in conjunction with the light coming from the candle, will surely convey to any environment all of the fascination, expectation and mystery of a holiday during which it is possible to dream about pacifying every tension and recuperating every serenity.
