|Visvim Candles by Blaise Mautin||CULTURE & LIFESTYLE|
|Tokyo, Japan / Paris, France
Most beauty and fragrance brands make one and there are brands devoted exclusively to them, so what makes Visvim's scented candles so special?
For a start, it is produced in collaboration with Blaise Mautin, a Parisian perfumer who would usually be creating scents for royalty, diplomats and luxury hotel chains. He does not make products available to buy in retail stores but only on a made-to-order basis. Clients will have to be personally screened and approved by Blaise, of course. Therefore this working relationship with Visvim is a first for both Blaise and Visvim. Two scents have been designed: No. 1 is refreshing and sharp, suitable for lounges and bathrooms or for the mornings; No. 2 is warm, sweet and engulfing, especially pleasant in bedrooms and in the evenings. A third will be introduced in the coming collection.
As with the Visvim standard, quality ingredients are used in formulating the candles and packaging is carefully considered, with the candles housed in glass beakers reminiscent of chemistry laboratory lessons.
