Designer Spotlight: Dayna Decker- lux candles
Dayna Decker developed a keen sense of style and sophistication from her international travels as a Ford model. After mastering the art of perfumery in Gras, France, she decided to create a revolutionary candle which she calls the Chandel based on the word chandelle (the French word for candle). We fell in love with her "Botanika" collection of Chandels that are infused with fresh botanical essence and packaged in the most luxurious and chic box. The wax is translucent and poured into a hand-blown glass vessel. The wick is probably the most unique part of the candle. It is called an EcoWood Wick and is made from organic wood in a natural manufacturing process. The EcoWood Wick burns cleaner than a cotton wick. When lit, the flame is a tear drop shape and the sound is a faint and soothing crackling sound that fades after several minutes. They burn up to 40 hours. The look, sound, and subtle but luxurious scent is simply divine.
We chose our 4 favorite fragrances (see image above) in the 6 0z size. Clockwise, Indigo in a beautiful box adorned by a hydrangea has essences of apple, plumeria, muguet, ozone, white wood and musk. Clementine in an orange orchid box is a velvety citrus scent embellished with sweet woods comprised of orange flower, Neroli, honey, black tea and cassis musk. Yasmin, in a box with a beautiful pink orchid is a lovely spring scent that is comprised of blooming jasmine, lotus, rose, white woods and sheer musk. Leila, the white flower box, is made up of grapefruit, dewberry, lemon flower and amber musk- fresh and simply wonderful.
