L'OBJET unveils Limited Edition Candle in collaboration with Oficina Marques
October 2023 - Leading fragrance and design luxury house, L'OBJET, has joined creative forces with the Portuguese multidisciplinary Art and Design studio, Oficina Marques, to introduce Botanica, a limited edition of 20 candles.
This collaborative endeavor has resulted in a candle that masterfully blends the evocative craftsmanship of L'OBJET with the creative artistry and hands-on expertise of Gezo and José, founders of Oficina Marques. Crafted from ceramic, each vessel, measuring an impressive 20 cm in diameter and standing 27 cm tall, is meticulously hand-made and painted by these talented artisans, from beginning to end, ensuring that no two candles are alike, and every piece stands as a unique work of art.
The Botanica Candle draws its inspiration from the untamed beauty of the wilderness, with designs that transport viewers to a realm of natural enchantment, capturing the essence of wild nature. Ceramic elements take the form of forest vegetation and fauna, providing a tactile connection to the serenity of the outdoors.
Each vessel is filled with fragranced wax with notes of uplifting Egyptian geranium, woodsy akigalawood, spicy nutmeg, Indonesian patchouli, African frankincense, and the unmistakable outdoorsy scent of fir balsam, each candle invites an olfactory journey into the heart of the forest.
