It’s that time of the year where you wonder ‘how did all the months fly by?’ Exactly my thought when I was invited to view the ECOYA Christmas Collection. I have loved ECOYA for some time now & my bedroom is filled with assortment of ECOYA candles. Much to my excitement, ECOYA would again release their much sought after festive season fragrances in both individual candles and gift packs. Perfect if you have already started planning your Christmas 2014 gift ideas.
Mildred & Co Showroom was transformed into a cosy and intimate atmosphere. Guests were invited to toast marshmallows by the bonfire. It was such a happy environment. Guided by leading fragrance expert, Isaac Sinclair, ECOYA sends us on a journey of the senses, enhancing emotions, elevating everyday moments and evoking memories of the past.
The showroom smelt amazing, trust me I am very picky when it comes to candles. It was revealed that the hugely popular Fresh Pine Needles is making another return as ECOYA’s iconic Christmas fragrance alongside the new festive scent, Warm Bonfire Nights. These two fragrances come housed in the ECOYA Madison Jar & ECOYA Mini Metro Jar.
In sophisticated new packaging, the Christmas cartons have the ECOYA signature Christmas crest on the face of the carton and come capped with a gun metal grey (Warm Bonfire Nights) and rose gold lid (Fresh Pine Needles). Warm Bonfire Nights will take you back to those late nights, sitting around a bonfire with friends and family, taking in the warm summer evenings and listening to the lapping of the waves, while toasting marshmallows. For me, personally, this takes me back to my childhood days in the tropics, very fond memories indeed.
Fresh Pine Needles will take you back to every Christmas ever lived. That moment when the scent of a freshly sawn Christmas tree is inhaled and gifts you the memory and the feeling of Christmas time, family and home. It’s one of the most beautiful candles I have smelt in awhile!
(1) Fresh Pine Needles: Notes of fresh pine needles enhanced with the richness of newly sawn forest woods; perfectly rounded with citrus and rosewood, making for a fresh and beautiful scent that will linger long after Christmas has passed.
(2) Warm Bonfire Nights: A sultry blend of sweet sandalwood on a bed of smoky incense paired with vibrant exotic blossoms of Orange flower and Ylang.
They come in two sizes:
ECOYA Madison Jar $49.95 NZ
ECOYA Mini Metro $24.95 NZ
