For those into scented candles, Gucci Décor has some pretty neat ones that smell and look good. Meet the Print Mini Basket Candles. These mood-lifting wax creations double as statement-making décor pieces that will fill your home with fragrance and personality.
Housed in chic black vessels complete with a metal lid and knob detail, the candles aren’t as tiny as their name makes them out to be. They measure 10 cm in diameter and 18 cm in height, and come in three variations to choose from.
The first is Esotericum, Grotesque Garden Print Mini Basket Candle. This is a blend of fragrant jasmine, orange bitter and leather notes. With matching artwork, its outer appearance features the Grotesque Garden print. The house’s style icon, the lion head, accompanies an abundance of botanical flowers.
Next up, the Freesia, Flora Print Mini Basket Candle that boasts green notes of violet leaves and resinous galbanum. Its floral print with pink and yellow blooms complements the aroma within. The historic Gucci motif in pink seals the deal.
Lastly, the Herbosum, ‘Guccy’ Bee Print Mini Basket Candle, with fresh and intense notes of tomato leaves and aromatic plants. It recalls a garden draped in morning mist, with a peppering of basil and lemongrass. Yellow ‘Guccy’ and bee print details decorate its eye-catching exterior.
The gorgeous vessels truly border on masterpieces of artwork. You won’t be able to wait till your candle finishes burning before planning on how to repurpose them. Whether it’s to hold small office supplies on your work desk, makeup brushes on your vanity or a miniature plant for the living room, the possibilities are endless, which can only be a good thing.
Priced at SGD740 each, the candles from Gucci Décor are available at Gucci boutiques in ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Paragon Shopping Centre. Alternatively, you can purchase them online with complimentary delivery in 1 to 2 business days.
