Three new scents and three new candle designs have launched in the Anya Smells home fragrance collection and will add fabulous scents (and a little humour) to your home this winter. Each candle fragrance evokes some of Anya’s happiest memories and she has collaborated with some of the world’s finest perfumers to create candles made from the finest raw materials and ingredients, all hand-poured in England.
Anya comments “It was always a dream to launch a fragrance collection. Candles are part of a wider collection of fragrance ideas coming soon under the umbrella of ‘Anya Smells’. My obsession has always been with the combination of playfulness, irreverence with the critical ingredient of craftsmanship”.
Chewing Gum is a herbal scent designed by perfumer Domitille Michalon-Bertier and has top notes of fresh mint and wild raspberry with Madagascan pink pepper, thyme, cherry, cassis pulp, heliotrope flower and ground almond with a little hint of scratchy school uniforms!
Lollipop brings memories of purple tongues and lollipop sticks and was designed by perfumer Marianne Martin. It has notes of crushed blackcurrant leaves, geranium, juniper, green mandarin, rose, peony and musk and is gloriously fruity.
Pencil Shavings is another fragrance designed by Marianne Martin and draws from the memory of fresh notebooks and novelty erasers in a fragrance that is a mix of cedarwood and patchouli with notes of mandarin, pink pepper, rose, cedar, cypress, amber and cardamom.
Each candle is finished with graphics from the Anya Hindmarch Sticker Shop and the boxes can be twisted to create different phrases or faces. Whimsical yet luxurious. these candles are available from Anya Hindmarch flagship stores in London, New York, Tokyo and come in two sizes, 175g (£50) and 700g (£150).
