Made in Turkey, Simple Life’s creations are anything but ordinary; established in 1998 by sisters Meltem and Sebnem Berker, the brand focuses on designs that are inspired by the beauty and culture of Istanbul. Here, we feature their home fragrances: We love the candles’ soothing, sweet scents and artful painted-glass vessels. But perhaps the biggest standouts are the diffusers: Each is topped with a porous marble-and-stone figure, in sculptural shapes like shells and flowers (even a mysterious owl), connected to a cotton wick that draws the fragrance up and through. These are way more than just home fragrances; they’re design statements.
New to Gilt, Odaline's candles and diffusers have a fresh, spring-y vibe ... we love the nature-inspired scents (our personal faves are Fig & Almond and Fresh Cucumber). And frosted glass vessels make them design statements in their own right. These subtly sophisticated scents are the stars of the selection on offer here, which includes some of our most-loved brands, from kai fragrance to DayNa Decker.
Make life a lot more fragrant with these elegant candles and diffusers. The range of scents is wide, with a focus on the heady and romantic. And the sophisticated packaging matches that elegant tone.
“Just because your space isn’t rustic doesn’t mean you don’t appreciate a natural, woodsy scent,” says Gilt Home buyer Katherine Miller. “These candles and diffusers allow even city dwellers to bring the outdoors inside.” Not only are the scents beautifully nature-inspired — think lemongrass-ginger, oak tree, and pepperleaf sage — but, in some cases, their packaging takes the same tack (our favorites are Vascolari SENSES’ stunning vessels, made from natural wood).
