Following her debut candle Bois D’Alexa in 2009 and her follow up trio Bois Blanc, Bois Sauvage and Bois D’Amour, Alexa Rodulfo is releasing Bois Nu and Bois de Rose, two sensual candles that have been inspired by the feeling of loving. The candles are handcrafted in Grasse, France and then poured into hand etched French glass. Each candle burns for approximately 50 hours.
‘Bois Nu is inspired by the human skin’ explains Alexa. ‘Skin has always captivated artists, but there is also something wonderful about the natural scent which is captured in this candle. It is innocent, strong, and very peaceful.’ Bois Nu contains a sensual combinations of warm spice and leather notes, cumin, cedar, fur and a subtle suggestion of bare skin.
Bois de Rose is classically feminine, combining a bouquet of fresh mint and geranium with violet leaves, jasmine, white lily, peony petals and roses.
The candles which launched at Fashion’s Night Out will be available exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman, Colette and DNA Saudi before going global in October when they will be available at Saks Mexico, Aedes de Venustas, Lane Crawford, Liberty and Joyce.
