PATCHOULI ROSE by BROOKE KNAUS
Inspiration for Scent
This scent is inspired by the energy, verve, and playfulness of summer captured in three core notes: milky and grownup sandalwood, sweet and exotic patchouli with the heady warmth of an August evening; and finally rose, familiar and pretty. This special seasonal candle conjures up feelings of standing barefoot in the grass of a clearing at dusk, of far off city lights twinkling to life while crickets start their summer choir. It’s a little creamy, youthful spicy and wild. It’s the summer anthem we can’t stop singing. This luxurious, all-natural soy wax scented candle will burn for more than 50 hours.
Inspiration for Artwork
Art and scent are sisters - each informs the other’s purpose when placed together intentionally. Though in this case, the candle informed the label design, not the other way around. The notes of this candle, sandalwood, patchouli, and rose, inspired me to create a label that reflected the playfulness found in that particular combination. To do that I chose bright colors and applied each with an energy that is typical of my style.
