Assouline to Launch Candle Collection

“We’re very excited to announce the new line of Assouline travel collection candles. There is no better way to expand on the travel series than by creating a scent showcasing the allure of each destination.” — Alex Assouline, chief of operations, brand & strategy

Close your eyes, take a breath, and be transported. Where? To a warm sandy beach of Tulum, a bustling bar in the old town of Mykonos or an après-ski moment in front of a roaring fireplace in Gstaad.

Assouline is delighted to introduce a collection of scented candles inspired by its best-selling Travel Series titles. Created exclusively for Assouline by renowned perfumer Jérôme Epinette, it will bring spirit and dreams to your most precious life moments.

The candles were created with the intention of going deeper into telling the story of six destinations: Mykonos, Tulum, Marrakech, Ibiza, Gstaad and the Moon. For each getaway, the Assouline family reflected on memories and personal associations that resulted in unique yet coordinated fragrances.

To complete this array of scents, the Assouline team worked on creating playful branding with vibrant colors and foil stamping. Each box is inspired by the series’ book covers, matching the palettes and individualized symbols specific to the series. The candles, featuring the motif of each destination, are
housed in a ceramic beige-tinted vessel. All pieces in this collection seamlessly blend with any style of interior and act as a perfect addition to one’s library, pairing elegantly with Assouline titles.

From the serenity of a tropical getaway to an adventurous day on the open water, this collection offers delights from your favorite places around the globe with scents that capture the essence of each destination. Exotic paradises, winter wonderlands and wild escapes take you on an inspiring journey while adding a whiff of travel to your home.

With the idea of continuously expanding the collection, the Assouline team imagined a range of accessories including a branded pack of complimentary matches with each purchase, and a brass Assouline lid retailing for $30. A box containing all six scents will be available later in 2023.

Assouline has also inaugurated a curated library service, working closely with clients to visualize, design, and develop bespoke, one-of-a-kind libraries.
