SCENTS OF PLACE

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style | News -

A treat for arm­chair ex­plor­ers: thanks to two new travel-in­spired col­lec­tions, you can ex­pe­ri­ence the world from home. French brand Lola James Harper has launched an eau de toi­lette col­lec­tion to ac­com­pany can­dles and room sprays that founder Rami Mek­dachi cre­ated him­self. Each of the 18 scents evoke a dif­fer­ent place: such as pun­gent am­ber sum­mon­ing mem­o­ries of the Bom­bone­ria sweet­shop in Barcelona. The fra­grances come in un­der­stated medic­i­nal-look­ing brown glass ves­sels (£34 each, Sel­fridges; sel­fridges.com). Also, de­sign stu­dio and let­ter­press ex­pert 42 Pressed now sells can­dles to com­ple­ment its col­lec­tion of hand-printed and cop­per-foiled city maps. Notes of each city, from Paris and New York to Chicago, are in­fused in soy wax: we like the idea of Lon­don be­ing chan­nelled in black pep­per and oak moss (£16 each; 42pressed.com).
