Baobab Collection candles are created using high quality raw materials sourced in Europe. The glass is crafted in Poland, the mineral wax comes from Germany, and the scents are created and perfected in Grasse. Each Baobab Collection candle is hand-poured in multiple pouring phases into glass containers that have been hand-blown by master craftsmen, making each candle completely unique.
Inspired by the history of the Italian Renaissance, the Borgia limited-edition collection pays tribute to this era by channeling the well-known family of tastemakers and patrons: the Borgia family. The collection shares three bewitching fragrances based on three characters from that era whose erudition and vision is inseparable from Italy’s history of passion and intrigue. The Borgia collection containers highlight a decorative technique applied to glass which was invented in Murano in the 16th century, each engraved with diagonals and flowers.
Named for Rodrigo Borgia, the patriarch of the Borgia family who saw the church as a means to an end and after a meteoric rise to ecclesiastical power, became chancellor of the Roman Church. Under the reign of his family, Italy experienced an unprecedented artistic boom where the works of great Italian masters and the discoveries of Leonardo da Vinci brought a country formerly divided into principalities to the rank of nation.
Coriander, Patchouli, Tonka Bean: The sophisticated fragrance of patchouli, coriander and tonka bean is reminiscent of the character it embodies.
About the Brand
Working with the tagline, “Where luxury home fragrance meets creative design,” Baobab Collection first saw the light of day in 2002, in the enchanting landscape of Tanzania, a country rich in intense colors and bewitching perfumes. The collections are inspired by faraway places and wild nature, but it is in Belgium that the new creations are dreamed up. The Baobab Collection finds unlimited inspirations through the wonders of the world. Each candle tells a new story: the name, the perfume, and the materials chosen are closely linked. The Belgian brand is committed to certain values including high-quality craftsmanship and respect for the environment. Like the Baobab Collection tree in the African savannah which inspired its name, each candle from Baobab Collection makes an impression and stands out from the ordinary. Baobab Collection’s candles are known for their size and original designs. They are extraordinary objects providing an olfactory and aesthetic experience, crafted using materials that are carefully selected and sourced across Europe and created by the best European artisans.
