Last year, I wrote about how much I adore India Hicks Island Living Collection…and I’m about to profess love for the new Island Nights Collection now. Currently, I have the fabulous Scented Candle and Fragrance Diffuser – both of which are truly exquisite products.
Both are beautifully boxed – so much so that I almost didn’t want to open them up. The product design itself is even more impressive. With a burn time of 50 hours, the candle features gorgeous indigo glass, set in a coral silver holder. The diffuser is a stunner that you will want to keep on display. The indigo glass is etched with the coral print; the wicking twigs are done in black, intended to “echo the limbs of a favorite tree – a hurricane survivor that clings to the shallows.” Either would make a fantastic hostess gift, but you might not be able to part with it after seeing how lovely they are!
The scent is a blend of purple and white orchids, night-blooming jasmine, green island palms and orange blossom nectar. Underneath all the flora is a note of musk, which gives it a sexy depth and earthiness. I’m burning the candle on my desk during the day right now…and it’s truly lovely. The diffuser is sitting in my living room, looking quite pretty. Both scent the entire room, and the fragrance really is a mellow scent – keeping you relaxed even on the most hectic of days.
