The Opulent Fragrance of Ooumm

With the proliferation of scented candles on the market, finding a fragrance that tickles your fancy is not so difficult, but to find a scented candle which looks as good as it smells is much more challenging.  Fortunately, help is at hand, thanks to Paris-based home fragrance brand Ooumm with their delectable fragrances set in alluring containers.

Ooumm's collection of four scented candles (all named after stars in distant constellations) are housed in sleek brass "capsules", which can be fitted into a variety of highly sculptural containers, most of which are made from marble.  We particularly like the delicate fins of the Orion and the prong-shaped Lyra, which recalls the shape of a torch.  The blown-glass Libra is just as stunning, the delicate glass container a perfect match for the delicate fragrance.  An exquisitely luxurious collection that indulges all your senses.

The fins of the Orion candleholder filters the delicate candlelight beautifully.  Achieve the same effect with the wood veneer sheets of the Escape suspension light from LZF.  Marble is a surprisingly effective material for lights, as shown by the Materials pendant and the Core table light, both from New Works.

For sleek and luxurious accessories look no further than Ghidini 1961 with its range of brass objects including the stunning Florida bowl, designed by Nika Zupanc.  Equally attractive is Sunset vases from Incipit and the highly sculptural Baltazar candle from Andrej Urem.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
