Peekaboo, guess who? Actually there’s no need to guess, because this new scented candle is instantly recognisable. It’s a light-uppable likeness of designer extraordinaire Karl Lagerfeld, complete with trademark shades and stiff collar.
Produced by Welton London, maker of fine home fragrances, it’s the second edition to result from a partnership that began in 2013.
While we’d totally buy the candle just for its packaging, its scent is Karl-worthy too. Lagerfeld’s favourite cinnamon makes an appearance among mandarin, orange and pink peppercorn in the top notes, bolstered by a floral heart mixed with cardamom, nutmeg and tobacco, and a base of amber, musk and wood.
An Oriental spice that’s luxurious and elegant — that’s exactly how we imagine Lagerfeld’s home smells, and now you can cop it for your own humble abode.
Made in France and available in a numbered, limited edition of 300, this candle makes a cool collectible - if you’re willing to part with €280.
