LA CHEMINÉE BY JOHN SAINT DENIS

  |   HOLIDAY 2012, INTERIORS AND DESIGN

Take a walk in the forested Sologne region of France on an invigoratingly chilly winter’s morn and soon you will discover first-hand the inspiration for the La Cheminée candle by John Saint Denis. One whiff of its intoxicatingly seductive smoky aroma will invoke visions of perfectly symmetric hand cut limestone châteaux blanketed by a crystallized misty fog or the silence of lush freshly fallen snow broken only by the crackling of a blazing fire flickering within a crested and centuries old chimney. With a mix of oak, moss, mesquite, and sage this soy based home fragrance candle offers over 80 smoke free hours of romantic ambiance. Los Angeles based designer, consultant, and modern renaissance man John Saint Denis turns to his French and Italian roots to produce a luxuriously indulgent and transportive range of candles. From the lavender horizons of the French Provincial countryside to the divine and resinous perfumes of frankincense and myrrh which permeate from ancient Merovingian churches, the John Saint Denis collection of candles is a modern interpretations of rich European heritage. Individual candles are available at $48 with a special 4 candle set at $175
