With so much of our lives stored in sprawling camera rolls on phones and tablets, our more noteworthy memories have become distantly impersonal and increasingly forgotten. To challenge this sobering reality, Celine Creative Director Hedi Slimane has unveiled the house’s new Haute Parfumerie Candle Collection. Akin to Slimane’s intelligent, high-octane ready-to-wear, the range of candles focuses on recalling powerful memories that are impossible to capture through a camera lens.

CELINE by Hedi Slimane Haute Parfumerie Candle Collection ($95, available online at Celine.com.)

From Parisian nights out with Nightclubbing, or the art deco-inspired Tambour Noir or the Papiers Froissés, which boasts sensual hints of tanned leather, pear, moss, and ivy, each candle offers a glimpse into Slimane’s world. But rather than via overly-saturated social media feeds, Slimane’s alluring aromas are shared with the light of a match. For Celine and Slimane, tantalizing scents can reflect and celebrate our most transformative moments. Imaginative and complex without becoming overpowering, Celine’s Haute Parfumerie Candle Collection creates sophisticated moments in every chic home.
