“When nothing else subsists from the past, after the people are dead, after the things are broken and scattered… the smell and taste of things remain poised for a long time, like souls… bearing resiliently, on tiny and almost impalpable drops of their essence, the immense edifice of memory”
- Marcel Proust
Our noses have a way of sniffing out nostalgia.
And the olfactory memory powers those memories. Fragrances and scents like Camdunia aromas go directly to the emotional parts of the brain’s memory, whereas words bypass that gossamer space, and proceed like logicians, to the thinking place.
But memory is transportive. It’s transformative. Taking you, unexpectedly, to a different place. Where you feel the presence of a loved one, or become childlike, once more. Fresh, Mediterranean sea breezes… and suddenly, you recall childhood summers spent swimming in Corfu. Or maybe it's a hint of apple pie, or a certain scent mum wore.
The Memories Collection is lovingly crafted in collaboration with living “nose” legend Nathalie Feisthauer who translates the remembrances of our things past into Camdunia candles and fragrances. First, with our beloved birthplaces, Paris and Warsaw. Then, we ventured further afar, to Dubai, Denpasar and Colombo…
Created in Paris and produced in Grasse, Camdunia invites you to share our memories, and rediscover yours where your memory takes you, in the comfort of your home. Candles and fragrances designed to transport you, effortlessly. Go, there.
