Candle enthusiasts, here’s another brand to add to your burgeoning collection of Diptyques and Le Labos. Founded by Sydney-based perfumer, Lina Shigemitsu, Lina Bada’s exquisite range of scented candles, essential oils and perfumes are inspired by beautiful landscapes and travel.
Unwind on a lazy weekend afternoon with Lina Bada’s signature fragrance, White Lotus Absolute, which reflects the depth and richness of the lotus flower, and is perfect for meditation. The scent comes in three different forms: glass candle, travel tin candle and reed diffuser. Each candle is hand-poured and made using sustainably farmed natural soy and coconut wax, as well as lead-free cotton wicks.
Keep your favourite scents on hand with the brand’s wide selection of travel tin candles. These compact candles are perfect for setting the mood and reminding you of home when you’re out travelling. Solace By Dawn contains floral hints of lavender and jasmine, coupled with the woody scents of hinoki and white cedarwood, while Scent of Tea is a fusion of green tea and lemongrass, combined with the warm, sensual notes of white lotus.
We may not experience changing seasons in Singapore, but the travel tin candles from the Saison Monsho collection evoke the many colours and expressions of seasons around the world. Be transported to Japan with Spring In Tokyo, in which the top notes of rose geranium and Japanese incense are smoothly blended with cherry blossom, Japanese honeysuckle and gardenia. Take a trip to the Balkans with Bulgarian Winter, a scent that embodies a crisp winter day with its triptych of rose fragrances. Classic rose absolute, honey-sweet Bulgarian rose and softly spiced Winter rose are wedded with white tea and ylang ylang to simultaneously soothe and uplift your spirits.
From $30 to $60, available at in-store at SocietyA and online at society-a.com.
