Fragrance:Mary Katrantzou for Rodail


We’re big fans of designer Mary Katrantzou and her amazing kaleidoscopic prints. In the latest marriage of fashion designers who are doing beauty collaborations, she’s just teamed up with British-based Rodail to design a limited-edition scented candle. Scheduled to launch in September, it seems to be a stunning match “for beauty fanatics and fashionistas.”

The candle features top notes of orange and lemon, complemented by sweet pineapple and orange blossom base notes. At the recent launch party, one guest had the brilliant idea of using the beautifully printed votive to store make-up brushes or pens after enjoying the candle. Why have I never, ever thought of that before? Don’t answer that.

The limited-edition Mary Katrantzou Rodial Candle is £35 and will be available from September 2013 at Space NK, Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges. Seems like the perfect holiday gift or stocking stuffer. Start your list!
