Baxter of California, the Los Angeles based men’s grooming brand, has teamed up with colette on the ‘Cruel Summer’ candle.
“The new scented-soy-wax-candle aptly named “Cruel Summer” was inspired by the scent and ambience of California. Cruel Summer opens with a very powerful green, leafy top note accented with a citrus lemon undertone. The body of this complex blend is a floral, green bouquet starring brilliant hyacinth, tempered with notes of cyclamen, and accented with a fresh marine accord. These rest on an alluring white musk base, embellished with cedar wood.
“We Love California” candles are designed by Marc Atlan, an art director with packaging credits including Comme des Garçons, Helmut Lang and Yves Saint Laurent. Atlan, whose résumé previously includes projects for Baxter of California, describes his design as a breezy homage to the pop music of the 80’s.”
‘Cruel Summer’ will be available at the rue Saint Honoré colette Paris boutique, and also in Los Angeles at Baxter’s barbershop [Baxter Finley]. Additionally the candles will be available online and at select retail partners.
