World’s First Design Blogger Candle: KOTO

11 August 2014 0


This week kicks off with a ‘world premier’ if you want so. And as world premiers are special occasions, this calls for special actions – so today I will dedicate the blog space to the world’s first design blogger scented candle: I am honored to introduce KOTO to you. Why am I so excited about that? Well, because I am part of the ‘Design Bloggers United’ group who have collaborated with Skandinavisk and have designed this candle. Our scented candle is named KOTO, which is the Finnish word for ‘home’ and it promises to carry the scent of an intimate and cosy space to refresh the soul. Because no place is like home. 

The scented candle KOTO is an exclusive collaboration of Skandinavisk, a brand known for its wonderful scented candles that incorporate the unique Scandinavian way of life (I blogged about them HERE) and the ‘Design Bloggers United’ group, that I am part of. We thought about a way how to create that everyday intimate moment at home, where the simple gesture of lighting a wick creates the feeling of warmth and tranquility. That’s how KOTO was born. You will notice that KOTO is bigger than regular scented candles and burns for up to 75 hours – this again is to pay reference to our home and to a long-lasting scent of cosiness and intimacy.

But KOTO does not only look sleek and is perfect for the design-savvy home. It also promises delicate notes of amber, jasmine and vanilla. To enjoy KOTO to its full extend all four wicks should be burnt until the melted wax reaches the edges of the glass. The scent will enchant you and add that intangible design aspect to your home – an olfactory moment of cosiness in your home.

If you feel as excited as I do about our scented candle KOTO or you’re at least curious to smell it, you can preorder it as of now HERE. The candle will be available as of September 2014. Bring home a unique design scent to your own nest and enjoy it to the max! 

P.S. I will be on holidays as of tomorrow and I will see you back here next Tuesday! Have a fabulous week my friends!

      Thank you so much, Lisa! Guessed you gonna like it – I like the name too, it is somewhat mystical (as the Finnish language is in general :-)).

    Hi there! What a fantastic candle it is. Congratulations! One thing though, the Finnish word for Home is koti not koto, but perhaps Koto was a inspired by this 🙂 I am Finnish native myself so just noticed this detail. I hope we get to see some more items designed by bloggers! 🙂

    Thank you all very much for the encouraging feedback! And thanks Pia for the Finnish background – the name was born out of a brainstorming and our Finnish friend suggested Koto, so it was derived from the Finnish word indeed.
