Four element candles by Tom Dixon at Maison & Objet

Friday, 24 January 2014

Tom Dixon has launched a new collection of fragranced candles inspired by alchemy. On show at Maison & Objet this week, the series of four candles are designed to evoke the four elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water.

Fire's smoky campfire smell is created with a mixture of cypriol oil, guaiac wood, amber and musk. The mossy scent of Earth is due to mint, guaiac wood and cedarwood.

Water has a cool, salty fragrance made using watermelon, cedarwood and amber musks; and Air is the lightest of all, blending pink pepper, white tea, neroli oil, orange flower and white musk.

The candles are available in a gift set of four small glass pots, or in medium and large lidded jars, coloured to match the elements they represent.
