Fancy that. SKANDINAVISK, the company that creates candles inspired by the scents of Scandinavia – was founded by two English men, Shaun Russell and Gerry Kingham, who fell in love with two blonde Scandinavian women over a decade ago.
After each moving to the region, working for big American multinationals and living between Copenhagen and Stockholm, they also fell gradually in love with the Scandinavian way of life: the focus on life’s small moments, the priority of family over career, the cycle to the office, the home at 4pm, the raw nature, the endless summers. Well, it is easy to do. It’s an enviable lifestyle that even the gloomiest winter cannot temper.
Both believe the absolute essence of Scandinavian lifestyle is in the colour, light and warmth of a flickering candle flame and a glow that not only burrows deep through the wax, but one which nourishes the soul too.
Scandinavians use more candles than any other group of people in the world.
They use them morning, noon and night.
Twelve months a year.
Because they know that a candle makes any moment softer, more informal, cosier. And they are amongst the world’s happiest people.
All you need is love. We already knew that. There is a lot of love in these candles. So, spread the love and happiness around.
