Aveda’s Earth Month Candle

Aveda has launched a charity candle in support of Earth Month this April and pledges to donate 100% of the RRP of its signature limited edition Light the Way Candle to Global Greengrants Fund, which is a non-profit organisation that channels high-impact grassroots groups working to solve environmental problems around the world. Now that’s what I call a proper charitable donation. Most beauty companies offer a paltry 5% of profits for charity. In fact since 2009 Aveda has raised $9 million  through the sales of this candle. Buying the candle, which is perfect for creating a spa at home, will support people to access clean water. One purchase can provide one year’s worth of drinking water for a person living in Madagascar. The candle is housed in 100% reclaimed glass beverage bottles, outer cartons are made from 90% post-consumer recycled paperboard. And the candle you burn?  It’s made from pure flower and plant aromas crafted from 100% certified organic oils, including Organic Vanilla, Cinnamon and Ylang Ylang from Madagascar. Oh so spa. £16 www.aveda.co.uk

A life with a view

There’s a new fragrance range in town – A Life with a View. Taking inspiration from views (certainly different) it bills itself as architectural fragrances for the 21st Century. A high ideal indeed. The Villa (Italy) and The Gite (Provence) didn’t immediately appeal, sadly neither did The Cottage (England) but as soon as I took a whiff of The Loft (New York) I was hooked. It’s got a smoky touch to it that immediately caught me. To create the whole scene overlooking Central Park woodsmoke is set against green notes of chamomile and thyme, whilst a glorious vase of roses blends with the warming comfort of cedarwood, sandalwood and vanilla. The overall impression is modern, smart and urban. THE FRAGRANCE: Top Notes: Smoke, chamomile, thyme Heart Notes: Rose, patchouli Base Notes: Vanilla, cedarwood, sandalwood, musk notes Candle 590g – £40 Travel candle and reed diffuser also available. www.alifewithaview.com
