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.
Give your bath a modern boutique-hotel feel with a just a few updates. Everything from plush towels in nature-inspired hues, to cozy robes, will complete your master suite with style and sophistication.
“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).
These elegant scents will elevate your mood — and your room. Not only are these fragrances sophisticated, they're also beautifully packaged ... making them perfect for gifting.
