Philia Candle by Boy Smells

  • $36.00

Philia is a deep, flora drenched tonic—softend by ambrette seed and bitter orange. The name stems from the suffix denoting fondness, especially an extreme affinity for any specific thing. In this moment, it is a yearning for sweet, musky bouquets of orris and cassis fruit.  Sensual, but highly sophisticated, it produces a palpable tension.

Part of the CHROMESTHESIA SERIES—A behavior which produces a visual impression based on stimuli; in this case, through scent. Each candle in this new collection from Boy Smells was designed in coordination with the color of its packaging. They also combine essential oils matched with their molecular identicals; merging nature and the instinct to replicate it.
