It's glass is covered in a graphic printed pattern inspired by the symbol of femininity. A gold rim surrounds this powder pink pattern, and reminds us how precious women are.
Fragrance: Powdered Rose
It's name resonates like a manifesto that celebrates women, and the powdered rose scent is an invitation to let one’s femininity shine with reckless abandon.
With this collection Baobab Collection shows its love for women and vows to support a cause that affects so many: breast cancer research. The idea for the exclusive candle was first established in 2015 when a representative from the BIG association against breast cancer approached Corinne Bensahel, Creative Director at Baobab Collection.
“A few months after my appointment as creative and marketing director at Baobab Collection, a bright young woman walks into my office with one of our small candles delicately wrapped in pink ribbon. She explains that she represents the BIG association against breast cancer and that she would love for us to work on a collaborative project.”
“The “Women” candle began to take form in my head. I wanted the female symbol to become a graphic print and for the pink to look more like the colour my mother used to wear. She also lost her life to breast cancer. All is suggested in this object, and its powdered scent leaves no one indifferent. It is not our intention for this project to end and hope that it will find an audience that will vow to support it as I vowed to support Mathilde during our initial encounter in May 2015” – Corinne Bensahel, Creative Director
