Traveling by Nose with The Sitota Collection
Launched in late 2013, THE SITOTA COLLECTION brings exotic places right into your home. The Founder, Yvette Davis Gayle, wanted to highlight places she's been able to travel around the world by creating a line of soy wax candles using glass votives and lead-free wicks.
Each of the four scents represents a place that had a big impact on her emotionally and spiritually and uses notes inspired by that region.
Aigyptos – inspired by Africa’s rich culture – notes of copaiba, balsam, orange and lavadin
Blue Nile – inspired by Ethiopia’s varied landscape – bamboo, wild grass, red grapefruit and jasmine
Coco Noir – inspired by Chaing Mai’s Loi Krathong festival in Thailand – coconut and cassis
Havana – inspired by fond memories of family from childhood – highlights tabacco, leather, amber and musk and contains notes of teakwood, pepper and black tea. This is my favorite one out of all of them (with Aigyptos not far behind). So unique!
Overall I’m glad she put this line out and am really curious to see what she comes up with next as this, for sure, is not just another candle line.
