Temple - Incense and Leather
Notes ~ Smoky incense, clove, tobacco, guaiacwood, labdanum, holy basil, leather
Rising incense smoke of sacred resins on hot coals and the intoxicating chanting of monks inspired this warm and spicy oriental fragrance. Top notes of tobacco and holy basil add a touch of peppery freshness which softens to enveloping clove and guaiac wood mid notes with a woody leather base. Images of sacred ceremonies and holy prayers are conjured through this exotic creation.
The saarti journey started in 2012 when founder, Beck Scougall, made her first candle creation in Siem Reap, Cambodia. A passionate advocate of fair trade and conscious consumerism Beck wanted to create an eco-lifestyle brand using natural and ethical products. Simply translated saarti means beautiful ceremony of light. 'Sa art' is the Cambodian word for beautiful and Aarti is the name of the spectacular Hindu ceremony involving candles and incense. The saarti collection now includes the signature range of hand poured candles, botanical perfumes as well 100% natural pure essentials oils. Saarti is committed to using the finest natural ingredients, ethically sourced from Cambodia and the surrounding region and empowering local communities through employment.
