Skandinavisk is 2 English chaps, Shaun Russell and Gerry Kingham, who fell in love with 2 Scandinavian girls and the Scandinavian way of life - and started making candles (for their flames)! The result: Uniquely scented candles and diffusers inspired by the local traditions and roots of the Scandinavian outdoor lifestyle of friluftsliv: true connectedness to the more-than-human world.
“We believe the absolute essence of Scandinavian lifestyle is… in the colour, scent, light and warmth of a flickering candle flame and a glow that not only burrows deep through the wax, but one which nourishes the soul too. After all, Scandinavians use more candles than any other nation in the world. They use them morning, noon and night. 12 months a year. Because they know that a candle makes any moment softer, more informal, more cosy. And they are the world's happiest peoples, so we think that's something worth sharing.”
