In a recent trend, many brands have expanded their horizons into the housewares division and created some interesting items. KitsunÃƒÂ© recently enlisted the help of designer and fragrance maker James Heeley to create this sesame seed inspired candle. Although sesame seeds have little to no smell on their own, La Glace au Sesame Noir (Sesame Seed Ice Cream) denotes an interesting mix of scents. The finished product results in secondary scents of dark caramel, honey, dry wheat and the slightest hint of vanilla.
The candle is packaged in a sesame seed screen printed container and when lit the candle provides a backlit silhouette of the seeds. After the candle has been used, the container is perfect for use as a planter or holder on your desk.
The candle itself is made in France. 50 hours of burn time is surely ample time to provide a pleasant aromatic experience with this candle. Available now at the Colette webstore.
