The Bothy Candle is Wildsmith Skin’s first home scent, created in partnership with visionary and olfactory experts; Maurice Joosten and Megumi Fukatsu to celebrate The Bothy Spa at Heckfield Place.
Commissioned to curate a fragrance that evokes the atmosphere of nature’s finest scents on the Heckfield Estate, The Bothy candle celebrates this magnificent countryside where time is slowed, breath is slowed, and we reconnect to nature’s rhythm.
Describing the scent journey as an impressionists painting, Joosten with his credentials in visual arts and perfumery, and Fukatsu with her expertise in traditional Japanese aromatherapy and Kodo traditions; the canvas for the fragrance was the arboretum, walled garden, and market garden on the Heckfield Estate.
Taking these insights and raw materials back to the studio, Fukatsu, who is heavily influenced in Kodo – the art of refinement, knew instinctively that the scent should be non-intrusive and evoke the richness and smoothness of the English botanical garden. The Kodo approach encourages scents that can sharpen the senses and awaken the spirit whilst also calming the mind in turbulent times, it should breathe life without taking the limelight. With this in mind, a pallet of notes and impressions were bought together as Joosten and Fukatsu used their instincts and intuition to bring the story of the land to the scent.
The Wax is 100% vegan blend made from Soy and Rapeseed with a 100% Vegan cotton and paper Wick.
