Candle Of The Week: Arabian Oud
This week, we’re going on a sensory journey to far off lands with our Candle of The Week; Arabian Oud, made by Australian candle maker, Atelier Lumira.
This scent exudes mystery and is quite seductive, with it’s notes of Rose, Oud Accord and Sandalwood – it’s a fragrance that has been long coveted in the Middle East for the rarity of it’s ingredients.
One sniff and we were hooked! A montage of images are called to the mind; rolling sand hills, bustling marketplaces, blooms in hues of rich reds and deep purples, women with lashings of kohl liner & intricate henna tattoos…
This candle definitely takes you on a journey, which exactly what Lumira founder Almira Armstrong aims to do with her range of hand-poured, soy candles. An Australian company, Lumira has a strong focus on design and travel, reflected through this exotic candle.
