After a trip to Grasse (the homeland of fragrance) in the south of France to learn the fine art of fragrance making, Daphne, the lady behind Candles of Light, brought her knowledge back to Singapore and translated it into her range of candles. She was inspired by the lavender and rose fields growing under the Mediterranean sun. Extract of geranium, grapefruit, citrus are scents reminiscent in her creations. The scent are at times mellow, fresh and light for a burning during the day time (Dawn or Daylight) or more sophisticated to wind down and set the mood in the evening (Dusk).
Daphne describes Candles of Light as "a botanical home fragrance atelier hand pouring pure soy and beeswax candles in small batches, scenting them with the finest essential oils, infusions and accords. Great consideration is taken in the careful construction of each scented item, from natural raw materials, to the techniques used. Beeswax, for example, is procured directly from sustainable apiaries, hand grated and blended with soy wax in Singapore. Our proprietary botanical scents are blended using pure therapeutic grade essential oils, infusions we macerate ourselves, and fine scent accords. "
