We've officially turned the corner from Summer to Fall, and while some of you may be sad to wave goodbye to Summer, don't be! Why? Because a new season means new scents of course!
To celebrate the new season, we have been burning 'Tuscan Fig' by LUMIRA. This month we wanted a scent that would gracefully bridge the gap between Summer and Fall and 'Tuscan Fig' does just that. Just imagine the scent of the Italian countryside, alive with olive vines and rows of fig trees. The sweet, juicy scent of the fig immediately fills the nostrils but is quickly accompanied by the contrasting scent of earthy patchouli and cedarwood. The welcomed addition of mimosa petals and blackcurrant add effortless balance; truly a delight.
We love the candle’s glam, yet simple packaging. Enveloped by a black paper sleeve with gold text, the black cardboard box is both sturdy and effective while still nailing an elegant presentation. LUMIRA hand pours their soy candle wax into an opaque black glass votive that is just as delectable as the scent itself. Once the candle was burning, the scent throw is generous but not overwhelming, and filled our office fairly quickly. The wax burns down pretty evenly, just slightly favoring one side of the votive. The only negative is the wick is fairly thick and holds a pretty large flame causing some sparking, just be sure to keep the wick trimmed!
LUMIRA, a luxury fragrance house, based in Sydney, Australia, was founded by creative direction Almira Armstrong. Ultimately inspired by a passion for design and the art of travel, each of their scents can be directly traced to a specific destination: whether that is the streets of New York City or the Tuscan countryside.
