More scented pencils, anyone? Quintais e Jardins de Portugal (Backyards and Gardens of Portugal) pencils from Viarco:
The cedar barrels of these HB pencils are perfumed with nostalgic scents of the Portuguese landscape, and convincingly so. The come in five different scents: Figueira - Fig, Jasmin - Jasmin, Lirio de Campo - Lily of the Valley, Peonia - Peony, Flor de Laranjeira - Orange Blossom. Viarco is Portugal's one and only pencil factory. Founded in 1907, Viarco has done a beautiful job of preserving and sharing their Portuguese while also constantly innovating unique new things. They are very much a 21st century pencil company.
Each pack of six #2 pencils is $10 at CW Pencils. (found via @glasspetalsmoke at Twitter)
At least they’re cheaper than the Mizensir pencils.
Absolutely fair. I’m trying to decide which scent first….
The only one I don’t care about is peony, and maybe lily of the valley wouldn’t top my list either. But I’m having trouble picking my first choice between fig, jasmine and orange blossom.
I’m contemplating fig for a friend and orange blossom for me.
I also don’t use pencils. ????
LOL — figures.
Lemming Lemming Lemming…
Three of the varieties are already sold out. If they have them in stock next year, the lily-of-the-valley would make an excellent May Day present for my mother.
Drat. I guess ordering them from Portugal might be a bit much.
