A FRAGRANT JOURNEY THROUGH CROATIAN HERITAGE

Only those who have had the adventure of life abroad, know what Croatia smells like. Most others breathe this wealth for granted. They dare not notice it.

Stepping into another metropolis of everyday life, after a vacation in Croatia, is an emotional challenge. That something that can’t be shaken or ripped out settles to the bottom of the chest. It's not that it hurts. It's up to the day. Sometimes it's heavier and sometimes it's under the accumulated tricks of life, pretending it's not there. Sometimes you just can't breathe.

Nothing will evoke memories like a scent. And not just memories, but also the emotions associated with those memories.

In front of my City, there is an island. From ancient times it has been an island that smells nice, they did not call it Lokrum for no reason. It smelled nicely to  the Benedictines and the unfortunate Maximilian.

When, as a child, you learn to swim there, or when you play with friends and laugh at peacocks, or when you walk the paths with your sweetheart; you inhale the scents of happiness on Lokrum.

Every visit to the island, for me is a return to happiness. Back to childhood. A return to the beauty of simplicity.

In everyday life, devoid of the smell of my island, nostalgia woke me up. The idea is recycled; if I can't go to the island, the island can come to me. As a lover of candles, I have always been in a tireless search for the perfect one. The realization that I could make a candle for myself, which would bring the atmosphere of my island into my home, was fantastic. It didn't take long from nostalgia to a business venture.

To ensure that all this does not remain in the phase of a passionate hobby, my relatives, who, in addition to being supportive, expert advisors and, of course, fierce critics; always asked for a candle more.

It started with Lokrum, and continues with Hvar, Rab and Brijuni. Each island is unique and leaves a unique fragrant impression that is further transformed into a unique scented candle.

My candles are a fragrant journey through Croatia and each candle has its own coordinates that guide you on that journey.
