KOTO scented candle by Skandinavisk and Design Bloggers United

I’ve got some cool news for you! We, as in Design Bloggers United, are launching a scented candle in collaboration with Skandinavisk!
I am crazy about scented candles myself, the high quality kind that is, and I can already say that this one with a soft scent of amber, jasmine and vanilla will be a future favorite.


We wanted to make a homey, welcoming scent, something that could represent our interests in homes and interiors, and chose a name to match. KOTO means home in Finnish.

This is how we like to describe our candle: A cosy refuge from the long dark Finnish winters, a seductress of scarce natural light, an intimate space to refresh the soul.
On a less poetic note, some basic facts: it’s a big one, with four wicks and a burn time of 75 hours, and it will retail for around €60. Made from a mix of perfume, natural and mineral wax with wicks of 100% cotton, then poured into hand-blown glass.
KOTO will be presented next week at the Formex fair and is soon available in stores all over Europe, but you can already pre-order from Skandinavisk’s own webshop.

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between. If you have any suggestions, propositions for collaborations, other ideas or just want to say hi, throw an email at: [email protected].
