Greenhouse Candle 170ml by Earl of East
Hand-poured in East London the Greenhouse candle is inspired by long summers spent in co creator Niko's Grandparents garden in Northern Greece as a child. A bespoke blend of vine tomato, parsley seed and basil this is the ultimate fresh summer scent - perfect for long evenings on the terrace.
35 - 40 hours burning time.
Greenhouse is inspired by the annual family holidays to my grandparents in Greece growing up. We lived in Germany, but it felt like the entire year was spent preparing for the trip to the motherland. As a kid, life in a Greek village seemed so different to the German city life that I was more accustomed to. It was slower, simpler and much closer to nature.
It was the food, and more specifically my grandmother's tomatoes, that formed the basis for this scent. She was village-known for the tomatoes she grew and would spend hours in her Greenhouse working away in the midday sun. No breakfast, lunch or dinner was complete without her simple, yet very tomato heavy Greek salad. To me, juicy, sun-warmed, sweet tomatoes, drowned in olive oil, with a squeeze of lemon, and seasoned with salt and pepper, enjoyed around the table with loud family members, is what Greek summers will forever taste like.
The scent is a beautiful & fresh blend of green leafs, parsley seed, basil & lemon zest and whenever I smell it, I am instantly transported to the kitchen with my Oma and the smells and flavours of her incredible cooking that are like a flavour-soundtrack to my childhood and a huge part of my identity.
