In the gardens of Mumbai, these tiny delicate flowers blossom only at night, their sweet scent transcends humid air. By dawn, the flower wilts leaving only the memory of its scent.
The scent has been recreated solely as Shakera remembers it from a blend of night scented jasmine, ylang ylang, rose.
In Scotland, the scent is infused into a blend of rapeseed and coconut mineral wax, then hand-poured and set in bespoke fine bone china pots. Each pot is crafted at the hands of skilled ceramicists in Staffordshire, complete with Shakera's intricate, hand-drawn illustration inspired by the scent.
As the candle burns, the flame gives a spectacular warm glow through the vessel which illuminates the design from within. When finished, you are left with a beautiful keepsake intended to be treasured for years to come.
