L’AMOUR COLLECTION

With the release of our new L’AMOUR collection; I thought it would be a great time to reveal the inspiration behind the collection.

L’amour is French inspired, highlighting the understated class and sophistication that we associate with Paris.

You might remember from when we first launched Illatos Lang that I have French heritage and so this collection is dedicated to my late grandmother – Lucy. All 6 fragrances are named to reflect the inspiration.

The whole design is pure luxury. A luxury that we all deserve. A luxury you are proud to gift a special someone.

This candle collection is a home ware piece to put in pride place when you are relaxing after a long day at work, wine in hand – of course.
A piece to light before your guests arrive to encase your house in a mesmerising scent.
It’s the perfect gift when you want to show someone how much they mean to you, it’s the perfect flicker of a flame.

A minimalistic approach was the focus with the design ensuring the scented flame takes pride place.
Encasing the candles is a black rigid designer box which is designed to be re-purposed. As well as the glass vessel which can be carefully washed out with hot soapy water and re-purposed. Make-up brush holder, plant succulents, Let your imagine run wild!

Carefully we chose 6 amazing luxury scents that will suit any theme and mood in your space.

Highlighting a limited edition piece with our Noir candle. Black glass, black wax = black on black. Pure sexiness! This scent is very special to me and one that evokes memories and moments from everyone who smells it. Once the wicks are lit, it is like looking into black glass – So seductive. Noir perfectly catches love in the air with its sophisticated melange of Bergamot and Sheer Musk. Surrender is inevitable. This scent relentlessly expresses its seductive and sensual power. The femininity of rose notes envelops you.

We carefully chose another 5 luxury fragrances to pour into the white vessel. We wanted something different with the scents and spent hours sampling and testing to bring you unique and delectable scents so there is something for everyone!

Cuir de Luxe (luxury leather) Leather & Burnt Sugar
A modern classic, which is raw yet polished, and sexy, yet sophisticated. It evokes luxury leather.

La Mer (the sea) Grapefruit & waterlily
La Mer invokes the sea. The waves caressing the shoreline releasing bubbles of water lily create a sense of calm. With uplifting grapefruit notes that excite fond memories of a clean scent during long lost summer days. The oceanic essence instantly promotes a refreshing feeling of relaxation of the surrounding beauty.

Bordeaux – Tobacco and Tonka bean
Bordeaux is seductive and sultry. Impressions evoke the fresh herbaceous and citrus notes. The lingering base of creamy Tonka bean and woods softens the velvety appeal of the orient. With a masculine edge that is infinitely relaxing and comforting

Jardin (garden) Peony petals & suede
The allure of peony petals and suede exudes the essence of grace. Blooming peonies flirt with the crisp bite of the luscious Fuji apple. The sophisticated luxury of jasmine and rose entwine with the sheer sensuality of soft suede.

Saisons (seasons) Blackcurrant & Fir needle
Wander through the magical forest, sun glistering through the trees; you embrace the uplifting scent of fir needle. The freshness of blackcurrant lingers on the senses whilst morning rose petals soften in the breeze. A truly strong, uplifting and fresh scent that will continue to capture.

L’amour is still and will remain 100% soy wax so you can be assured your luxury scented candle is not emitting any nasties into your air. All fragrances are body safe also.

To accompany each scented candle, we created a reed diffuser in each fragrance to match. Poured into a white Boston glass bottle with black reeds, it is the perfect accompaniment to our candle range. These will last up to 6 + months.

We hope you love and enjoy the scented flame with our new French inspired L’amour collection. Be prepared to be addicted.

Enjoy! Jade x

Soy Good For You

When I began my candle making I researched the difference of using Paraffin wax to soy wax and as soon as I read all the benefits of using soy – it was a clear winner.

There is often some confusion of what is the difference between soy wax and paraffin wax?

Paraffin wax: Oily liquid similarly obtained and used as fuel, especially kerosene. It is waxy solid consisting of a mixture of saturated hydrocarbons, obtained by distillation from petroleum or shale.

Soy wax: A processed form of soybean oil. Originates from good old-fashioned soybeans.

Hmmm.. Ok a natural vegetable product – I’m sold!

So lets take a look at how soy wax is produced.

Firstly the oil from the soybeans is separated and then purified to give pristine soybean oil, which then will go through a process called hydrogenation that will turn it into a solid.
No soy wax or any wax made from a liquid vegetable can be certified organic due to the process of the soybean liquid into a solid wax. Due to this chemical change the wax cannot meet organic certification. However it is still a clear winner compared to paraffin.

Illatos Lang uses a premium soy wax called Ecosoya, they are based in the United States and use only domestically grown crops.
Ecosoya guarantees the wax is completely free of any pesticides, herbicides or any genetically modified material. Each kilo of wax is carefully analyzed to assure its quality before leaving the laboratory.
Unlike other vegetable or soy waxes on the market, this soy wax is 100% natural and biodegradable. It is Kosher certified. Not tested on any animals ☺. And of course free from any petroleum, paraffin, or toxic materials.

Tick, tick and tick! ✓✓✓

So what are some of the benefits of choosing soy wax candles?

Soy wax candles will burn up to 50% longer than paraffin candles as the wax burns cooler. Which is also safer to burn when children are around.
There is less soot emitted from soy candles. The soot from paraffin candles may cause damage to your walls, furniture, ceilings etc. I have personally experienced this from a paraffin candle. I ended up with black soot on my wall and ceiling – Eww!! This resulted in a new coat of paint to clear it up.
Soy wax will not stain either – it is simply cleaned by using hot soapy water. It is a renewable resource that can be replaced at a rate comparable or faster to the rate of consumption. And is sustainable without damaging the ecosystem.

Unfortunately there are no regulations on how much soy has to be in a candle to classify it a ‘soy candle’. Candles need only to contain as little as 20% soy to be classified a soy or soy based candle.

So with Illatos Lang, you can be assured you are receiving a 100% soy wax candle with all the added benefits as listed above. We do not add any other additives to enhance the appearance of the wax.

Impressed? I am.

The Royals in Manly

    With the royals visiting Manly (My local town) today the excitement is boiling over and helps me think that we are all princesses in our own way. I know I feel like one today as I prep for my sisters wedding tomorrow.

    I’ve just hopped out of the shower after using our Body Scrub.  I’m so in love with it. I don’t know why I always forget to use it. My skin feels about 10 years younger, so soft and moisturized already! It’s made with Organic raw sugar, Himalayan rock crystals and the amazing organic oils – Camellia, Jojoba and coconut, moisturize your skin like nobody’s business! I always follow with our body butter made with Organic Calendula oil, Macadamia & Vitamin E (oh and it’s paraben free) I have quite dry skin so I use this daily and find that it keeps my skin hydrated all day long. I can’t stand that dry, about-to-crack- feeling so I personally love it!

    As summer is trying to hold on, my dry skin is telling me otherwise. So my friends do yourself a favour and give your skin some nourishment this April.

ILLATOS LÁNG / ILL-A-TOS LANG / Scented Flame

Here we are bringing to you our first blog entry! I’m pretty excited that we have the opportunity to show you what Illatos Lang is all about.

With our new beaut website currently under construction- and looking pretty good (if I must say so myself) it’s been quite a process to arrive to this point from the birth of Illatos Lang. And I can’t wait to show you what we have on offer now.

Just so you know the correct pronunciation: ILLATOS LÁNG  – ILL-A-TOS LANG

This translates to “Scented Flame” in Hungarian. My Poppy is Hungarian. And I wanted to create a brand in honor of him and my late beloved Nanny whom I miss so much.

Our current range – Budapest Inspired is homage to my love.

As I sit here with a glass of wine and watching the flickering flame of our gorgeous white tea and ginger candle –An opportune time to cheers them both! x
