    1 comment / Posted on by Maeva Candles & Fragrances


    
    Wedding is the celebration of love, followed by all a lot of dancing, singing, eating, running around and then eating again. And after all the hustle-bustle, at the end of the night when the guests fall back into their bed exhausted, they get reminded of the wedding favor and YES they go back to check that box! The wedding favor becomes the last remaining takeaway from your extra-special weekend.


    Let’s talk about the significance of a wedding favor? Favors are gifts- a small token of appreciation given out at the end of the wedding reception. Just an opportunity for the couple to thank their friends and family for committing their time to celebrate your special day.


    Obviously, you would want the guests to takeaway something that reminds them of the crazy good time they had at your wedding. Something personal, customized and definitely a gift that they will appreciate. Trust us, if you're reading this you have arrived at the right place.


    Let’s get started instantly. Now if you want the gift to be both classy and unique in its own way- we suggest to go ahead with Scented Candles! We have the perfect  occasion-based scented candles for you poured into jars that are beautiful and can be re-purposed very well.

  • Here's Why Tuberose Is Our Bestselling Fragrance Of The Month

    1 comment / Posted on by Tanya Kumbhat

    Despite it's name, Tuberose is no relation to the mighty rose. Tuberose is a night-blooming white flower distinguished by its swollen, tuberous roots. An ingredient for off-beat perfumes, tuberose is also used as wedding or funeral flowers in many cultures.


    When Maeva chose Tuberose for its wedding collection, we heard some skeptical voices as weddings flowers are usually roses, tulips lillis or peonys! Also what's a tuberose ? (It is rajnigandha in Hindi.) We stuck to our guns and went ahead as we simply loved the complex lush, cool almost exotic note that when put into emotions is sweet, heady and seductive. And you our beloved customers have proved us right by buying so much of it to make tuberose the fragrance of the month.


    Intrigue and Mystery

     

    Thomas Moore writes in his oriental poem 'Lalla Rookh'

    The Tube-rose with her silvery light,

    That is in the gardens of Malay

    Is called The Mistress of the Night

    So like a bride, scented and bright

    She comes out when the sun's away.

    The tuberose has been a symbol of love and lust since ages past despite not having the visual appeal of orchids or roses. Described as heady, even narcotic, the famed perfumer Roja Dove called tuberose the 'harlot of perfumery.'  It is also said that the Victorians forbade young girls to inhale the odour of tuberose for fear they might have get lured to give into passions!


    It's all in their chemistry


    The flower contains high qualities of 'lactones' buttery-smelling molecules which is also produced by our scalp. They also contain 'indole' which is the smell associated with human bodies and human intimacy. All these components explain why the smell of the tuberose flower seem familiar to us; flowers are the reproductive product of plants, so of course we would be attracted by human similarities to the  composition of these  flowers.


    Florals are ubiquitous


    Everyone loves a good floral scent whether it is in perfumes, air fresheners, soap, candles and more. We're sure that people will continue to love florals for as long as they exist but it is also true that people like to be surprised. Tuberose is the answer to those looking to veer beyond the floral scents as it isn't sweet and cloying but is clear and sharp that gives it more of an edge. So for those who dislike florals-tuberose is the way to go.


    First Impressions

    As astounding as this fragrance is, human beings are visual creatures first and this is where we spend days picking out, experimenting, discarding and developing!  Befitting the scent of the tuberose, Maeva has breath-taking cloches, silvery crackled mercury glasses, intricately designed bell jars, eye-catching silver lacquer pillars and delicate glass jars to present you the perfect wedding candle. A delight to look at and to smell, our vintage cloches, big tins and jar candles are wedding gifts begging to be given while our silver pillars and tea light holders are just beautiful to add to the decor of magical weddings.


    As we said before, our Mr and Mrs wedding candles are flying off our virtual shelves! Head over to https://www.themaevastore.com/collections/wedding to get this sultry beauty to you today.
