Choose Keeping Candle by perfumer H

This nose stands out for its profound desire to put the natural ingredient of creative process, hence the fragrances that generally bear the name of an evocative raw material such as Bergamot, Ink, Leather or even Smoke. She also brings together glassblowers, cabinetmakers, designers and architects around her poetic olfactory universe to give life to exceptional bottles, designer boutiques or even refillable candles. Before diving into a hand-blown candle (at a rather expensive price, it must be admitted), you can turn to the utilitarian ones, at a more affordable price. Come Choose Keeping (which actually corresponds to the fragrance Paper), which evokes the tranquility of a desk, with its notes of turpentine oil and papyrus wood, herbs and spices on a background of dark cedar and cade wood brushed with oil of pink.

This is not a candle. Or maybe yes. Use Not A Perfume perfume from the house Juliette Has A Gun (founded by Romano Ricci, Nina’s great-grandson).
