THE CANDLES

The Russian Seasons collection of fragranced candles continues Olga’s story with a sensory journey through the seasons, deep in the countryside of her childhood.

SPRING bursts with promise with its blend of blackcurrant, rose and leather whilst sensuous orange blossom, apricot and tuberose deliver a pop of sunshine in SUMMER. Notes of blackberry, nutmeg and patchouli bring warm depth in AUTUMN and WINTER, with its spicy mixture of cinnamon, clove and incense, has a comforting softness.

Each candle has a burn time of 50 hours

HERITAGE

Just as each Vilshenko clothing collection references and is inspired by classical Russian art, particularly in its intricate embroidery designs and prints, this inaugural collection of scented candles draws inspiration from traditional matryoshka dolls. Originating in the late nineteenth century, these wooden figures carved from linden wood have long been seen as a symbol of Russian culture. Collaborating closely with artists to create four bespoke designs, each handfinished doll is based on a traditional form of Russian painting.

Zhostovois an ancient technique primarily used to denote flowers and berries on metal trays.

Rooted in the Byzantine tradition, theGuzlitskayastyle was used to decorate sacred books and features playful patterns finished with a golden shimmer.

Gzheluses the timeless combination of blue decorative patterns on pure white ceramics.

Khokhlomasymbolises the importance of forests in Russian culture and is usually applied to wooden furniture and ornaments.
