White Musk Scented Candle in Moroccan Pot
These Moroccan candles are a labour of love. They are made in two countries and involve the work of many people!
This vegetable musk candle has a soft, slightly sweet floral scent with a gentle note of woodiness that we associate with musk. It is made from ambrette which is a well known substitute for the old traditional musk and comes from a hibiscus seed. We particularly like this at BE Lifestyle Boutique for its clean, light and airy scent.
The oil is bought in the hidden labyrinth behind Hada's basket shop in the Spice Square in Marrakech. The Moroccan pots we get from Abdel who has them specially made for us each time we visit. They are completely handmade and hammered to create the beautiful effect. The sabra (cactus silk) tassels we get in "tassel alley" just near Abdel's shop.
Once we have most of the ingredients, we hand them over to Francesca Giomarelli and she works her magic to create these masterpieces by adding soy was. Then it's just a tassel and label!
