The Odalisque luxury scented candle is such a romantic scent. Enclosed in citrus and wood bark, the orange blossom weaves a painter’s dream from which escapes the pale volute of smoke from a narghile. As an orientalist painting, furiously romantic, the vigorous scent of the cade, and solar splinter of citrus fruits, come out as a thin blade in the silky shadow of vanilla.
Top notes: lemon, orange
Middle: orange blossom
Base: juniper, vanilla

Middle: clove, oak wood, patchouli, labdanum
Base: tobacco harmony, moss, leather, amber
