Just in time for white elephant exchanges, Harry Styles' Pleasing candles have hit the scene, so you might want to make some room under the tree (and on your coffee table).
On the heels of a gender-neutral fragrance release, the former 1D crooner decided to keep the gift of sexy scents coming and expanded into the interiors scene, for which we are all grateful. Though Pleasing is mainly focused on beauty buys — nail polishes, oil moisturizers, etc. — it's beginning to dip into fashion with sweatshirts and tees. If the candles are any indication, perhaps household goods are next? (One could only hope.)
Much like "Watermelon Sugar" and "Adore You," home fragrances are our jam, so allow us to give you the scoop on the happenings in Harry's line.
A look at the Pleasing candles
Pleasing candles, created in conjunction with renowned fragrance house Robertet, are available in the same three scents as the gender-neutral fragrances: Rivulets, Closeness, and Bright, Hot, all of which are to "embody simplicity, innovation, creativity, and beauty," according to the brand's site. It likely won't take long before these babies end up on best candles lists everywhere. They're the perfect accompaniment to "Late Night Talking" plays, if you ask us.
Top: Ambrette seeds, lemon, black pepper Madagascar
Mid: White linen accord, poplin blossom
Dry: Ambroxan, skin musk
The floral, fresh fragrance is accentuated by white linen accord and musk, among other combinations. Altogether, it's meant to be "evocative and addictive" and it succeeds on every level.
Top: Plum, tobacco leaves
Mid: Orris butter, marine accord
Dry: Cedarwood, tonka bean absolute, vanilla absolute Madagascar, crisp amber
Perfect for summer nights, Bright, Hot, takes a seasonal favorite and gives it a twist thanks to notes of tobacco leaves and cedarwood. It's considered the stronger scent of the batch, but totally sexy and swoon-worthy. (Not that you had any doubt.)
Top: Australian pink pepper extract, cardamom EO, clean sheets accord
Mid: Orris butter, carrot seed France, bamboo
Dry: Indian papyrus, cashmere woods, salted musk
Woody and musky with a tang to boot, Closeness is meant to evoke just that — skin upon skin. Did you have any doubt that these aromas would be just as sensual as the singer's lyrics?
Enjoy burning the natural soy wax blend candles in your digs, and once the party's over, hang onto the keepsake glass bowl and lid. (We spoke to experts about how to reuse candle jars if you don't want to part ways with the beautiful packaging.)
