Extremely high on my list of things I want but will probably never see and would not pay the price for anyway: Loewe Beetroot room spray, from their new home collection that I also never would have heard of if the Times hadn't covered it last week. Due to launch in September, €85 for 150 ml. "Home fragrance with beetroot essence. Olfactory creation that highlights nature’s most authentic and pure scents. Glass container with glazed ceramic stopper and cotton label, providing organic textures to the product." For €70 there is a wax candlestick (see above, it looks like a candle in a holder but the whole thing is wax and so you have to put it on a plate or whatnot, and they do of course sell a black glazed terracotta base just for this purpose, €20) and also for €70 there is a regular jar candle (that's the small one shown above; the large is not yet on their website), and a diffuser for €210. Everything also comes in Honeysuckle, Luscious Pea, Tomato Leaves, Ivy, Liquorice, Marihuana, Juniper Berry, Cypress Balls and Oregano. I'll take the lot.
Yes, and I’ll put it in my dream French cottage in Provence where the breeze blows through handmade sheer linen curtains and I use handmade ceramics for my plates and bowls. I’ll have a rustic table under a huge tree outdoors for dinner parties with candles and wildflower centerpieces and a big garden with herbs and veggies on the side. And there’s a sweet dog sunning herself on the deck who will accompany me on my long walks.
I love your French dreamlife!!
I can dream!
I’ll take Beetroot and Tomato Leaves.
Really, no Cypress Balls? (Poor wording for English speakers, but still.)
Nor Oregano or what I am assuming to be pot ?
Ew, I dislike beets so much that the thought of making my house smell like beets is really quite nauseating to me!
Giving an “Eeek!” to this as well…
Beets are a very divisive veggie! My husband despises beets, says they taste like dirt. I love them, always have. My mom says strained beets was my favorite food as a baby.
Same here! Beets, really? Even those who like to eat them never praise their aroma.
My inner 12-year-old is snickering at “Cypress Balls”. At least Axe didn’t use the name.
This is amazing.
