Launched in early 2013, the Copenhagen-and-Stockholm-based candle brand Skandinavisk is a celebration of Scandinavia’s vast silent landscapes and raw seasons, of cosy shared moments, of the world’s happiest peoples. The word “Skandinavisk” is Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian for “Scandinavian”. Combining subtle fragrance, colour, symbols and a single local word rich with meaning, Skandinavisk creates impressions of Scandinavia. Fragrances are defined in Scandinavia and produced in Grasse, France (the home of perfume). Their diffusers are made from a 200ml blend of perfume and a non-alcohol liquid base. They bring subtle and stable fragrance to a room for up to 3 months.
Ingredients/Material: Blend of perfume with a non-alcohol liquid base, with eight reed sticks, hand-poured into a glass bottleScent:
- Hygge [hu-gah] is Danish DNA, a reflection of the Scandinavian art of creating intimacy, fellowship and cosiness in the smallest everyday moments. Notes of tea, baked strawberry cake, rose petals and wild mint.
- Koto [ko-to] – the traditional Finnish word for “cosy at home”, a refuge from the rugged climate, an intimate space to refresh the soul. Notes of amber, exotic jasmine, mandarin and vanilla.
- Lykke [lu-kurr], Danish for ‘happiness’. Renowned as the world’s happiest nation, the secret to Danish happiness is in life balance and treasuring the everyday. An optimistic moment of spring snowdrops, lemon-nettle and apple-mint.
- Ro [ro], peace, calm and tranquility from the kingdoms of Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Notes of fresh grass, crumpled leaves, ambered woods and hidden blankets in the dunes.
