The French always know how to elicit emotions out of you. They are the masters of the immersive experience. Most French things that I’m drawn to, whether it’s an old shopfront, a pair of shoes or a bottle of wine, the beauty of the thing is always a priority, created with passion and for the joy of creating; French products are rarely just functional.
Overose is a Parisian perfume house and creates candles that are ‘Romantic, Primitive and Feminine’…I mean, I’m sold already.
The Overose aesthetic is modern, infused with slick creative energy and inherently cool. With each candle created to be a beautiful piece for your home, they’ve done what the French do so well and focus on “more well-being, more pleasure, more emotion.” Oof.
Overose is for those who revel in individuality and the non-traditional. Each candle has its custom-made coloured pink wax and matching glass – although recently, it did some incredible holographic glass, which was mega. The candles contain non-traditional scents for a beautiful multi-sensory, immersive experience. The scents are fantasy-like; my favourite has to be Indasmin, “The candle highlights the dark, hidden, narcotic soul of Jasmine, not its public side. Gelsomino pornografico.” Whoever wrote the copy for this, has my heart.
Not only are the scents and the packaging refreshingly modern, their processes are too. They create with natural and organic oils and have done away with unnecessary plastic packaging, adding more momentum to homeware brands becoming more eco-conscious.
Overose candles focus on being unashamedly different. Their creativity and individualism is seriously sincere – just like you lot.
