Candles have gone from being an item of utilitarian and functional use ― providing light and warmth ― in the home, to a modern design accessory. During the holidays, the right candle doesn’t only brighten up a room with its natural glow, but acts as a decorative accent.
At NEST (https://www.nestcasa.com), the Baobab Collection, with its range of colors and sizes, is a delightfully adaptable selection for any interior whether it’s to fill a living area with a fragrant smell for holiday entertaining (the ambergris-scented Masaai Spirit is perfect), or to perfume a bath area (the frangipani-tree infused Madagascar Vanilla promotes rest and relaxation).
The handmade collection of decorative candles is a stand out ― they are hand-crafted in beautiful vases, which are created by Belgian glassblowers, so each one is exclusive, or they are also available in stainless steel holders. Baobab’s deluxe fragranced candles were developed by a Belgian entrepreneur that designed the collection after she was inspired by African influences while traveling. Incorporating tribal notes and intense colors, the candles, as well as the packaging, capture the brand’s Tanzanian heritage.
What is so noticeable about this collection is the care that Baobob puts into its work. The candle is poured into each glass individually by hand. You’ll notice the wax is natural and non oily, and that the wicks are made with high quality materials ― Egyptian cotton, to be exact. Labels are applied by hand on each candle and box. Committed to a respect for the environment in everything they do, Baobob encourages the reuse of their containers once empty to be used a glass, vase, or even a champagne bucket.
Baobob candles presented as a gift are always welcome because the packaging speaks for itself. The black box is immediately recognizable, covered with handmade buckram paper, exuding elegance. Refined fragrances have been elaborated by a well known perfumer in Grass, temple of the world perfume industry.
For the holidays, Baobob is introducing its collectible Christmas Eve keepsakes ― Rudolf, Prancer and Blitzen ― with each having a signature scent and an exterior vase that recalls the famous reindeer.
