Sunday afternoons I always try to dedicate to some relaxation time. I try to finish all my chores and like to try to unwind and plan the week ahead. Sometimes I head out, other times I'm at home, but this relaxation almost always also involves some chocolate, tea or sometimes a glass of wine.... and it always does involve burning a candle.
A few weeks ago I visited the lovely Semi Expat as she was taking care of Peony, a divine perfumery in Hawthorn and got myself a new candle. Since then I've been burning Cire Trudon Odalisque - Fleur d'oranger/Orange blossom
Enclosed in citrus and wood bark, the orange blossom weaves a painter's dream from which escapes the pale volute of smoke from a narghile. As an orientalist painting, furiously romantic, the vigorous scent of the cade, and solar splinter of citrus fruits, come out as a thin blade in the silky shadow of vanilla.
