Kenya’s night sky inspires Lalique’s new luxury candle

La Nuit is blended with notes of plum, coffee and vetiver, said to evoke Africa’s diverse cultures

Luxury French fragrance brand Lalique has released a new candle inspired by Kenya in Africa.

The new La Nuit candle (€69) has top notes of amaretto and plum; a jasmine and orris heart; and base tones of coffee and vetiver.

The fragrances are said to symbolise Africa’s diverse cultures.

The deep blue packaging evokes the country’s night sky, while golden swallows, which light up when the candle is lit, are reminiscent of their birds’ migration to Africa for winter as well as Kenya’s night sky.

The candle is said to burn for 40 to 50 hours and is available from lalique.com.
