Bústaður Scented Candle
Scented poetry for up-leveled ambiance
What is it: All-natural vegan candle crafted in a perfect harmony of refreshed fruit and woodiness. Comes in a presentation box - ideal for gifting.
Why we love it: It creates an inviting atmosphere. Made with sustainable Colza Wax and housed in a glass vessel with an Icelandic poem by one of our celebrated poets and authors, Sigurbjörg Þrastardóttir.
Why it’s powerful: The juicy tartness of Rhubarb and the fantasy fruity note of Pomegranate come together in this irresistible candle, Bústaður. Uniting in harmony with a subtle base of Patchouli and a hint of citrus, this candle will fill your home with an uplifting ambiance that will suit any season.
Embossed poem by Sigurbjörg Þrastardóttir.
ég eignast kannski einhvern tíma hús
í grafarvogi raðhús með sléttu númeri
eða íbúð með sérmerktu bílastæði þá
skiptir mig engu hvort sími sé í svefn-
herberginu stutt níður í þvottahús eða
hvort koma megi ryksugu í forstofuskápinn
ég geri þá kröfu eina að gólfefnin verði
borgfirskur mosi útveggir jökulsárgljúfur
og loftþiljur himinninn yfir herðurbreið - Sigurbjörg Þrastardóttir
Perhaps one day I’ll have a house
in Grafarvogur an even numbered townhouse or
an apartment with private parking then
I don’t care if there is a telephone in the
bedroom a shortcut to the laundry
or if the vacuum cleaner fits into the hall closet
my only demand is that the flooring be moss
from Borgarfjörður the outwalls Jökulsárgljúfur
and the ceiling panel the Herðubreið mountain sky - Sigurbjörg Þrastardóttir
(Translation by Halla Helgadóttir)
