22 Nov Home fragrance that tells a story…
Beauty Voyage is all about globally inspired beauty, so it’s only right that new home fragrance and candle range, A Life With A View, stakes its rightful place on my blog!
Not only do I rate the brand concept, but the scents are rather fabulous, too. How many times have you been seduced by the evocative scents of your holiday destination, whether you’re staying in a whitewashed English cottage, a peaceful gite in Provence, an industrial loft in New York or a terracotta-topped villa in Italy.
How fabulous it would be to bottle that holiday aroma and bring it home with you!
Well now you can, as it’s these unique sensorial ‘moments’ that inspired the collection, comprising A View of Italy, A View of New York, A View of Provence and A View of England.
Created by some of the best ‘noses’ in the business, the results are simply beautiful. Each one is complex, contemporary and tells the story of the destination that inspired it.
These are high quality products, and unlike cheaper candles and diffusers you can expect the fine fragrance to last. Burn time for the scented candles is 40 hours; for the travel candles, 17 hours.
Here’s a breakdown of the composition of each one:
A View of Provence – The Gite: Lavender blended with blackcurrant and spearmint, herbal tones of rosemary and a warming blend of patchouli, cedar and amber woods
A View of England – The Cottage: Green notes of rosemary and bergamot, with a bouquet of sweet pea, lilac and wisteria, atop a base of woods, amber and a hint of smoke
A View of New York – The Loft (my personal favourite, it’s so alluring and rather sexy!): Woodsmoke against green notes of chamomile and thyme, a bouquet of roses blending with warming cedarwood, sandalwood and vanilla
A View of Italy – The Villa: Jasmine and almonds blended with hints of citrus groves, fig for a gentle greenness, above soft notes of precious woods.
Each are available in scented candles (£40), travel candles (£50 for three) and diffusers (£49). Buy online at www.alifewithaview.com.
