Gents Refined Aura for the Home
There’s one thing you’ll always find burning in my home and that’s a luxurious scented candle. I like my castle to smell incredible at all times and add a little ambiance. Over time, I’ve notice that scented candles have different effects on my mood. For example, a marine or citrus scent will energise me, while a floral or earthy fragrance will conjure feelings of calm and relaxation.
Recently there have been more and more scented candles catering to men’s taste with strong, bold and masculine notes which are robust and inspire feelings of success – oh and seduce the opposite sex or same sex if you will. The latest Australian candle company to release a candle specially created for men is Padre Aura with its Arcangelo fragrance said to be inspired by the dramatic life of war, peace and romance lived by Emperor Napoleon.
Arcangelo is an empowering, strong and sophisticated scent which features refreshing notes of Blackcurrant, apple and pineapple followed by intoxicating florals accords of Rose, Moroccan Jasmine and Patchouli. The base notes consist of earthy patchouli and woody oak moss and ambergris. The combination of these notes add a refined warmth and boost the fragrance’s longevity. Arcangelo reminds me of Creed Aventus and would be well suited to men who like Dior Sauvage or Chanel Allure Homme Sport.
I would describe the fragrance’s intensity as full bodied and it fills large spaces easily. I burnt this candle in my living/dining/kitchen; the largest space in my home and found the fragrance travelled nicely adding an air of refinement to my home. The candles holder is also eye catching, it’s housed in a shiny black jar with the Padre Aura logo embossed in metallic rose-gold. The candle also comes with a metal lid to protect it from dust.
While the fragrance quality is second to none and produced using superior fragrance oils, it’s reassuring to know all Padre Aura candles and created using only the finest materials. Each candle is triple scented and handmade in Australia using the highest quality non-toxic soy wax and natural wicks. Now that’s a great reason to light up!
