BYREDO TAKES A GOOD SNIFF AT IKEA

We love love love a bit of Byredo but the fragrance brand ain’t cheap so we do find ourselves having to ration our stash. But not for much longer because Byredo is teaming up IKEA for a candle collab range and it’s going to be very affordable. The collection, called OSYNLIG, “inspired by the emotions that scent provokes – from nostalgia for the things you’ve done, to dreams of the things you might – and, above all, heighten the experience of being at home.”

What that means in reality is 13 different fragrances across three main scent categories of fresh, floral and woody, including the likes of peach blossom & bamboo, Swedish birch & juniper, pomegranate & amber and basil & mint. As well as smelling good, the candles look the part too coming in glazed stoneware pots, with colours chosen by Byredo founder Ben Gorham to represent the scent ingredients.

The best bit though is the prices, which are a very wallet-friendly £5, £9 and £25. That does pretty much guarantee they’re gonna sell out so you’d best get down to your nearest IKEA double quick.
