Samyo & Alaala Set
SAMYO & ALAALA
A special edition gift set with a selection of four candle minis that represent our take on notably Filipino olfactory experience:
Stroll along a street dotted with good old panaderya and enjoy the sweet aroma of freshly baked bread wafting through the air straight from the baker's ovens. With sweet notes of cream vanilla and cinnamon spice and then balanced by frankincense.
Rekindle an endless summer, marked with sipping lemonades on the beach, surfing along the coastlines of Zambales or hanging on hammocks on hot summer nights. With the freshest notes of lemon, bergamot, sampaguita, olive and pine, this is summer in a bottle.
Inspired by the opening chapter of Noli me Tangere by Jose Rizal, Old Manila is our first foray into literature-inspired candles. It's an interpretation of Kapitan Tiyago's grandiose house on Calle Anloague in Binondo and, with intrigue, explores how it might have felt to live (and love) inside and around the walls of old colonial Manila town. With romantic and jazzy notes of vetiver, cedar and rose.
Inspired by childhood summer trips to the mountainous and coastal towns of Mindoro, island provinces off the southern tip of Luzon. This delicious scent instantly brings you to those early summer nights as you await dinner but whatever's cooking from grandma's kubo near the sea has already reached your nose so the anticipation is torture! This candle has notes of coconut (a prominent produce of the island and a staple in the kitchen), orange and vanilla.
This edition is inspired by Dama Ko, Lahi Ko, a community-driven campaign which aims to experience and honor the Filipino Culture through the five senses in time for the 2021 Independence Day celebration on June 12.
