On The Table Read, “the best creativity magazine in the UK“, new line of scented candles from the British luxury design studio Aaron Hales features a beautiful scent that was inspired by an ancient recipe for recovery and protection.
Aaron Hales has released a new line of scented candles, with stories about their unique fragrances. The “Pouncet” candle has a cozy scent that comes from an old recipe.
Pomanders, perfume balls that were kept in fine, globular cases made of gold and silver, were worn as a charm to protect against pestilence and other unpleasantries for centuries. Later, the pomander evolved into the pouncet box, which was used to store cotton-absorbed liquid perfume. Aaron Hales developed a scent that began as an aromatic, spicy accord of cure-dried orange and pungent sweet clove and later evolved into a concoction of musky spices that form a delicate powder enveloped by rich, warm cinnamon. Aaron Hales was inspired by these recipes of recovery and protection.

“When developing a scent for the Winter months, I really wanted to avoid all the cliches of a ‘festive’ scent however I kept returning to this combination of orange, clove and cinnamon,” explained Aaron Hales. “I was intrigued to find out where this combination originated and when I eventually found all these wonderful paintings of globular cases and recipes by Nostradamus, I was inspired. What resulted is a sophisticated, Renaissance-imbued oriental scent that turns a familiar combination into something quite unique.”
As a nod to the exquisite pomander globular cases, the custom-designed decorative printed steel lid that comes with the candle was created. The lid aids in maintaining the scent, putting out the flame, and keeping the wax dust-free.
Hand-poured by artisans in the UK, the candles are vegan in every way. The wick is cotton with a paper core, and the wax is made from a mixture of soy wax, rapeseed oil, and coconut oil. The lid is printed with eco-friendly inks, and the reusable jar is made of recycled glass. The candle has been designed specifically to burn evenly and reduce soot.
