TWG Tea unveils four exquisite new Tea Scented Candles to complete the coveted Perfume of Tea Collection of handcrafted TWG Tea-infused candles. The product of a meticulous collaboration with a renowned and very secret French parfumeur and spécialiste de cire whose fragrances are featured in only the most select luxury fashion houses of Europe, TWG’s Tea Scented Candles transform the luxury of the incomparable TWG Tea drinking experience into a breathtaking olfactory sensation.
Each of the candles is a result of a magical distillation process that has taken more than three years to perfect, which transforms over 9 kilos of the finest signature TWG Tea Blends into precious treasures that immerse the senses in a fragrant, luxurious indulgence.
All of the candles feature TWG Tea Exclusive Tea Blends, each itself already a fragrant marvel crafted of the finest tea leaves sourced directly from the best plantations in the world. TWG Tea’s Perfume of Tea Collection spotlights some of the most meticulously fashioned creations from TWG Tea’s collection of over 1,000 teas.
The new Bain de Roses Tea Candle incarnates Provence in the month of May, when the dusky roses of Grasse come into flower. Combined with a secret bouquet of black tea, heady notes of white sandalwood, warm vanilla and fresh grapefruit, Bain de Roses exhales a passionate and dramatic elixir as sweet as a rose macaron.
The Tea Party Tea Candle is a fresh and verdant surrender to the elusive charms of springtime, a delicate reminiscence of misty morning awakenings followed by glorious sun drenched afternoon tea parties, an addictive perfume inflected with notes of sweet violet and handpicked raw green tea buds.
Escape into the seduction of a balmy evening with the Oud Night Tea Candle, a sensual candle laden with a rich infusion of rare calambac, incense and smoky black tea. Dissolving into an earthy potion of molten resin, cedar and smouldering tea flowers, Oud Night burns as an ardent offering, a luxuriant and incandescent dream of sweet eternity.
The TWG Tea Candle Collection also features a revolutionary achievement, the White Earl Grey Candle. The world’s very first Yin Zhen Earl Grey infused candle and a rare elegance to experience, this TWG Tea novelty burns with a refreshing combination of sparkling bergamot and downy leaves of imperial white tea which pervade the senses with a crystalline scent, reminiscent of sparkling moon water.
The high mountain plateaus are ripe with the delicate perfume of freshly harvested tea. Inspired by the quiet sophistication of TWG Tea’s signature blend, 1837 Black Candle is scented with an epicurean fantasy of vanilla, musk and sweet spices, a sparkling promise of enigmatic delights.
Soft waves escape from a teapot, sending fresh notes of steam into the air. A celebration of mysteries, Miraculous Mandarin Candle is scented with a panorama of rich spices, frankincense and notes of candied sweetness, an invitation to a sumptuous and lavish feast of the senses.
These unprecedented TWG Tea-infused Candles are each rich in scent and delicately crafted to burn for 60 hours of luxurious immersion.
