The Love Bug Bites Back, Thirsting for a Peach Bellini
It’s no mystery that we get around to romance pretty quickly. Sure we have our zingy, citrusy sporty side, but worlds collide when the sensory power of scent taps into the alchemy of seduction. The intimacy of a flame aglow takes on a whole new meaning in the witching hour.
In 2014 we had a hit with Passion, a candle devoted to the unbridled delirium of love (can we have what she’s having?)
True aficionados will remember this limited edition candle, which toasts our favourite emotion with the succulent nectar of a Peach Bellini, the exquisite bubbly concoction first created in Venice.
It’s time to give romance addicts a chance to indulge in this year’s flight of fancy – so we return to the Renaissance magic of this architectural jewel on the Adriatic, as we launch our newest Destination Candle, Venice.
PARTY LIKE IT’S 1599
