Ponnopozz x Aura Candles
One of my coolest collaborations of the year is finally here – Smell the Rainbow with Aura Candle Bar!
I partnered with Aura to create a line of candles that smell like colors. Ever wonder what the color yellow smells like? Wonder no more, we've created the perfect interpretation of the color yellow. And pink. And blue and green.
Each soy wax candle is hand poured right here in Chicago at Aura's shop on Southport. Each candle comes in a white glass jar with a silver lid and a colorful front label designed by yours truly. For me, this is taking the experience I have with color to the next level!
To create the scents, I worked with Aura to smell nearly all (~100) of the scents they offer in store. From there, I pulled my favorite combinations and worked with Aura's scent experts to craft a series of smells that are BOLD, unique and exciting!
Pink: Watermelon, juniper and wasabi. Smells bright, bold and fruity.
Green: Grass, key lime, mint leaf and earth. Smells warm, sweet and very earthy.
Blue: Clothesline, bamboo and basil. Smells fresh and sweet.
Yellow: Sunflower, peppercorn, yuzu and campfire. Smells very floral with a hint of smoke and subtle sweetness.
All scents created by Ponnopozz in conjunction with Aura Candle Bar. AURA Candle Bar is a socially interactive retail experience bringing people together to explore and create through the power of scent. With 100 premium fragrance oils, soy wax and only cotton paper wicks on offer, our candles burn cleaner and longer; it's really the only way you'll ever want to candle again.
