Marta Jonsson is a London based designer who specialises in leather handbags and shoes since decades. Every European footwear store to boutiques have graced Marta's designs over years and have appreciated them for it's uniqueness and attention to detail. They are chic, classy and versatile however nonetheless dearly priced. Her simplistic yet sophisticated take on fashion however reminds me much of The White Company and Zara Home.
It's something that won't easily go out of date and will rather age gracefully. Marta started off working at a shoe boutique in her teenage years and knew exactly in 2 hours that designing shoes and looking at happy customers is what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. Quite a few clothing outlets under her belt and supplying steadily over the past years, Marta has decided to dip her feet into the home sector. As they always say, if you're looking for perfumes or scented candles, the best ones you can find is through designers. They'll always make sure it smells luxurious and looks fashionable.
I personally am a candle hoarder and no number is just enough for me. Having said that, I do consider candle packaging and like complimenting it with home decor. It just makes sense doesn't it? Would you pick a flower vase for the sitting room without it complimenting the room decor? Similarly, candles have the exact same criteria in my opinion and Marta Jonsson's are no exception.
They are gorgeously housed in a glass container that's narrow at the bottom and wide at the top, giving it an almost vintage like look and feel. The contrasting black Marta Jonnson logo label on the top makes an interesting touch. Compared to the overtly colourful and extravagantly decorated candles these days, I quite prefer this for Spring/Summer.
Perfect for a crisp, clean feel especially if you have a home office like mine. Vanilla is also my favourite scent regardless of the season as the delicious sweet and comforting scent always works wonders at uplifting my mood and getting rid of those Monday blues. It's also a great one to burn in the back yard when chilling out on long summer evening, aah the life!
For £13.93 and free shipping, this Marta Jonsson Scented Candle is a steal! Would make a perfect Mother's Day present. Now if you excuse me, I think I'm going to stock up on a few.
