Neumann Aroma

The scent of candles is an endless craving of mine. Whether it is walking into a home, a bedroom, or a bathroom, a candle always helps to set the mood of the space you're in. Something about stimulating the olfactory with an aroma that feels fresh and light can really help to improve the aura of an environment. Just like parfums and eau de colognes that help to finish off an individual's personal scent,  candles complete the mood of the environment of which they are placed. 

I recently was introduced to a candle collection by the Baroness Monica Von Neumann. A jetsetter and former model for Dior and Yves Saint Laurent, the Baroness was inspired by her travels in Europe and Africa to create a line of scents in the form of candles to share with others. The Baroness, also, a humanitarian, travels the world, particularly in Africa aiding in the help of children with HIV. 

My personal favorite is her Savon candle, a sparkly floral Aldehydic with notes of Jasmin, Jonquil, Rose and Lily of the Valley with a woody, musky, ambery background.
