Introducing Skandinavisk

Posted: Mar 24 2014

SKANDINAVISK was founded by Shaun and Gerry, two English men who moved to Scandinavia for a taste of the good life, inspired by unique way of life they found on offer they created this candle brand as a homage to their newly chosen homes.
They launched their first scented candle in Autumn 2013, introducing perhaps the world's first scent of 'hygge' - inspired by cosy Danish living. Their scents are created with the the help of one of Europe's leading female perfume designers and the perfume is then produced in Grasse in the South of France. Each candle burns for a leisurely 45 hours and is protected by a beautiful painted glass votive.

These beautifully packaged candles are all evocative of truly Scandinavian moments:
  • Hav - Fresh Sea scent reflecting Scandinavia's endless coastline.
  • Ro - The scent of Scandinavian tranquility 
  • Ö - The breezy scent of the archipelagos
  • Sommer - The floral scent of a Swedish summer
  • Hygge -  A scent inspired by cosy Danish living
  • Fjord - An Intoxicating scent capturing the drama of the Norwegian fjords


And, as Stuart and Gerry say: 'We believe the absolute essence of Scandinavian lifestyle is right here - in the colour, light and warmth of a flickering candle flame and a glow that not only burrows deep through the wax, but one which nourishes the soul too. After all, Scandinavians use more candles than any other nation in the world. They use them morning, noon and night. 12 months a year. Because they know that a candle makes any moment softer, more informal, more cosy. And they are the world's happiest people, so we think that's something worth sharing.'
