Since antiquity, the palm tree has been a mythical tree and subject of rituals that have persisted with an astonishing consistency over the centuries. The palm leaf has been an offering used in many religions or has given rise to the creation of delightful pictorial motifs, from Greco-Roman antiquity right up to the present day. The Palm collection pays homage to the tree from which it draws its name through a glass engraving shaped like its graphic leaves. The three candles in this collection are named after resorts inspired by the many palm trees that reside there. Thus the West Palm, Palma and Palm Springs candles take us on an olfactory journey to the confines of the island of Mallorca, the shores of Florida, and the gates of the Californian desert.
The city of West Palm emerged at the beginning of the 20th century under the direction of Henry Flager who had made the islands of Florida’s east coast accessible to the public. The city owes its name to the lush vegetation of palm trees growing along its beaches.
The West Palm scented candle is poured in a hand-blown turquoise glass, engraved with a motif reminiscent of the iconic palm leaves. Handcrafted in our workshops, the graphic motif is revealed via transparency and comes to life by the glow of the flame. Its scent of sea salt, neroli and musk will take you to the lush shores of Florida.
The birth of the city of Palma dates back to the Roman Empire. Founded by Quintus Caecillius Metellus, it is said to have been named after the Roman geographer Strabo, who mentioned the name Palma as a reminder of the many palm trees in the city. The city of Palma is the capi- tal of the island of Mallorca.
The Palma scented candle is poured in an amber glass reminiscent of the colors of the Medi- terranean sun. Hand-engraved with a palm leaf pattern, the Palma scented candle is a beau- tiful decorative object for your home. Its floral and fruity fragrance is a blend of orange and magnolia, and will transport you to the vibrant world of the island of Mallorca.
Spanish explorers called this place in Upper California «la Palma de la mano de dios», the palm of God’s hand. Mexico became independent in 1823 and Upper California was ceded to the United States in 1848. It was then that American topographic engineers used the name Palm Springs on their cartographic surveys in homage to the Californian palm tree that thrives in this region.
The Palm Springs scented candle is delicately hand engraved with a palm leaf pattern. The deep khaki colored glass recalls the vegetal spirit of this collection. Its fragrance of mint, lemon tree leaves and tonka beans is both refreshing and full of mystery, taking you on an olfactory journey to the edge of the Californian desert.
