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.
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.
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.
