Multipurpose Candles

Aerangis candles are an ideal choice for destination couples to gift their guests, as they evoke joyful memories and create a desirable atmosphere. These candles offer the opportunity to commemorate special occasions with a delightful fragrance that complements the wedding ambiance. One such fragrance is “A Hundred and Fifteen Rows,” which features a delightful blend of lemons, musks, green leaves, and amber. Its scent is subtly captivating, leaving a pleasant and warm surprise. This candle’s versatility makes it suitable for weddings in any season. However, there’s more to this candle than meets the eye. Once the candle is burned, the cover contains seeds which can be planted using the candle’s container as a pot. This way, each time your guest lights their delightfully smelling candle or waters their seedling, it will remind them of the trip of a lifetime!
