Advocating luxury craftsmanship and unique, exquisite scents, ROADS fragrances are extending their range of premium perfumes to include an equally luxurious range of candles.
“I wanted to create a range of fine fragrance candles that would inspire and invigorate my customers. To evoke emotion through the aesthetics of a fragrance is a wonderful opportunity. When you walk into a room and beautiful, sensual perfume is diffused in the air it can create such a feeling of harmony and well-being” said ROADS owner and creative curator Danielle Ryan.
“It was a very different process from creating a fragrance to wear,” explains Danielle. “Instead of appreciating how the perfumes would work on the skin, we had to understand what happens when a scent is captured in wax and how it then diffuses through heat. It was a magical experience and I am so proud that we have produced such authentic, beautifully fragranced candles.”
Inspired by the elegance of Japanese culture and the beauty of cherry blossom. Where delightful top notes of Lemon, Bergamot, Tea Accord and Rose, mingle with aromatic Cassis, Rosebud, Magnolia and Violet. Charming base notes of the more heady Cedar, Patchouli, Amber and Musks, creatively collide and lightly scent the room with a delightful ambiance.
This is a romantic, heart-stopping moment you wish could last forever. Irresistible Freesia, Osmanthus, Incense and Orange Blossom flirt with Iris, Peony, Tuberose and Jasmine to create fragrant chemistry when blended with possessive Vetiver, Cashmere Woods and Musk. A beautiful composition, that creates a deeply sensual atmosphere.
This is a candle with a deeply dark and sophisticated scent. Where power, strategy, intrigue and ambition battle together with masculine elegance. Honeyed Leather, meets a hint of sweetness in Rose and Coumarin, whilst intense Amber, Woody and Tobacco deliver a possessive personality when burned, this creates a charming environment.
Always changing, always inviting. A night garden you might see in your dreams, ethereal and fragranced by nature. The beautiful simplicity of Clove, Cassis, Apricot, Green Fig and Basil, infused with Rose, Jasmine and Iris and warmed from the base with Woods, Vanilla Musk and Incense, bringing a deliciously natural fragrance to any room in the house.
This imaginary hotel, in the heart of the stunning Indian landscape promises luxury and majesty. Spice and wonder waft in the air, Lemon, Mandarin, Orange, Grapefruit, Saffron and Accord are invigorated with Tea, Ginger Cardamon, Coriander and Jasmine and finally fused with Vetiver and Patchouli lighting up any occasion with an exotic sense of wonder.
The 5 ROADS candles have been created using the very best quality mineral and vegetable wax, poured to the highest standards and developed by the finest perfumers. Burn time is approx. 40 hours.
The ROADS FRAGRANCES CANDLE collection, distributed by Intertrade Group will be available from Avery Perfume Gallery from November 2015.
