The Five Elements Scented Candles
The Five Elements is a collaboration between perfumer Pauline Rochas and multidisciplinary artist Tasya van Ree. Rochas explores healing through ancient wisdom and rituals of scent while van Ree's artwork is infused with mystical messages and otherworldly elements. Both are inspired by the power of nature.
The five scented candles represent the five elements of nature: Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and Ether. When lit, these scents recall a primordial worship to the gods and echo the infinite mystery of Mother Earth. The Five Elements pair beautifully with the use of The Untamed Elemental 52-Card Oracle Deck, also designed by Tasya van Ree.
