Skandinavisk was started by two English chaps who fell in love
with two blonde Scandinavian girls and never left. Our
collection is inspired by fifteen years of travels and
experiences across the Nordic region.
In 2013, when we launched our first scented candles, we made
it our mission to bring to life the stories of Scandinavia through
design and fragrance – whether the focus be on the local flora,
so abundant in summer and frozen in winter, or the thoughtful
approach to life common to all Scandinavians. Interpretations
of raw nature, and of human nature.
My wife’s Copenhagen garden, itself the inspiration for the
Rosenhave fragrance, hosts more than one hundred varieties
of rose including alba and rugosa roses often found wild in the
north, and delicate old French tea and Bourbon roses. The
garden is also a haven for temperate-friendly flora such as lily
of the valley, elderflower, lilac, peony, apples and berries.
Our own growing team of Brits and Scandinavians can be
found in Copenhagen, Stockholm and London and we produce
everything here in Scandinavia or in the European Union. As
we look toward the next five years, we will keep exploring, keep
learning, and keep challenging ourselves to bring to life this
beautiful and inspiring region.
But living Scandinavian is not just which part of the world you
come from, it’s also how you think, how you treat others, and
what you treasure. We believe a Scandinavian approach to life
offers a blueprint for a better future in a world that’s forgetting
how to listen to quieter voices.
