A manly, heady scent reminiscent of a smoky, jazz club of yesteryear

FRASSAI

"...my flat is smelling of battered leather chesterfields and cigar smoke, with incense, elemi, oakmoss and suede it's a manly, heady scent reminiscent of a smoky, jazz club of yesteryear" ・・・
...one of 5 scented candles talented Natalia Ou has developed in honour of different sensorial experiences and music greats. She cut her teeth in New York working in the perfume industry and returned to Buenos Aires to combine her love of scent and jewelry into one enterprise which she sells locally and in the States. Her necklaces can incorporate a vial to carry perfume as part of the design. Clifford is my favourite of her candles - and right now my flat is smelling of battered leather chesterfields and cigar smoke, with incense, elemi, oakmoss and suede it's a manly, heady scent reminiscent of a smoky, jazz club of yesteryear."

The best gifts for your hostess

FRASSAI

Champagne bottles and flowers are overplayed. Why not go for something more personal when choosing a gift for your host or hostess. Scented candles and home accessories are our go-to choices. Find out why below...

SCENTED CANDLES

It's less difficult than you think to choose a great candle for your host/hostess. You may already know what kind of scents the person likes, in which case you can pick up a fragrance with tons of personality, like Gustav (a fiery blend of spices and sensual notes) or Marlene (a masterful blend of leather, tobacco, vanilla cream and aged Scotch whisky). 

If you are not sure, you can play it safe with soft floral notes, like in Bebel. This is our best-selling candle for self-gifting and is adored particularly by women. Although men love it too. What is not to love about Brazil? Bebel is inspired by exotic tropical ingredients and the sounds of bossa nova. Peonies, guava juice, watery pear and sandalwood will let you travel to paradise without leaving your house; or your host's! Since this is meant to be a gift... right? 

A more classical approach to fragrance is Ada, where dewy green leaves softly caress the whitest gardenia. This is a sure way to prolong summer all year long. This floral candle will swoon any white flower lovers (gardenia, jasmine, white violets are the main fragrance notes).

If looking for something more masculine, like a smoky leather reminiscent of a jazz club, Clifford will do. Its notes of suede, incense and saffron will fill the room with delight even while it's not burning. 

Candles are indeed a wonderful and thoughtful present that indicate you've actually made an effort. We love pairing any of our scents with home accessories that are beautiful and useful as well, like our copper candle wick trimmer and the chicest snuffer you'll ever see (put out your candle with style!).

HOME ACCESSORIES

A candleholder is the ultimate luxurious gift. When you are ready to take it up a notch, gift your host a hand-finished solid copper candleholder. The base of lenga wood will not only look pretty but will also protect the surface. After burning the candle, your host will appreciate filling the copper vessel with fresh flowers before replacing with a new candle scent.

Do you have a weekend ritual? We find that Friday sets the mood for the weekend ahead. It's a good opportunity to stop and contemplate, leave some things on our list aside for next week...

Burning traditional incense and lighting a candle can get us to that desired place. The incense we are burning now was brought back from a temple in Beijing, China and blends beautifully with our most spiritual scented candle: CLIFFORD, in honor to American jazz trumpeter Clifford Brown

Clifford Brown amazed his peers with his ability to blend technique with emotion to create a rich, full sound that earned him praise as the "preeminent trumpeter." (Source: Biography.com)

Sacred resins and noble woods burn while swirls of smoke elevate towards high heavens in homage to the deities of jazz. The golden warmth of amber and suede pair with the subtle smoky scent of incense and a touch of spicy saffron

Fragrance Notes: saffron, incense, elemi, oakmoss, suede

This highly luxurious candle was created in collaboration with perfumer Roxanne Kirkpatrick and is available here
