Void Bougie Parfumée Candle
You may be contained to your cosy living room during the chilly days and nights of winter, so why not invest in a candle that brings the aromatic scents of the world to you? Colekt's 'Void' candle, made from vegan wax, will whisk you far away from the Nordic darkness with exotic notes of rhubarb, tangerine, basil, pathcouli and dill. Snip the wick, watch the flame flicker and be transported by its scent.
Like its title, this candle is truly a symphony of moments, presenting a complex blend of fragrances that, like music, may be interpreted differently by each individual. It is a blend of woody, spicy, and powdery notes with a bitter orange and anise top note along with beeswax, ginger, and clove mid notes.
