Out of the Darkness

Amna Al Habtoor launches new home fragrance line

Arcadia, the Dubai-based perfumery brand created by Amna Al Habtoor, has extended its product line and is now offering locally produced home fragrances in the form of three candles as part of the Out of the Darkness series, bookmarking the internal struggles faced during the 2020 pandemic and the subsequent light at the end of the tunnel as we emerge from these turbulent times.

Amna Al Habtoor, the owner of Arcadia, said: “Arcadia is a brand that represents the idea of a utopic existence where each nostalgic fragrance is coupled with a narrative, underscoring the euphoric experience that occurs while reminiscing.

“In our new home fragrance series, Out of the Darkness, each candle is centred around a narrative of real experiences we have all gone through, all narratives are relatable during these testing times. The poetic description for the range of candles is built from the context of feeling enclosed, recurring incidents and not being heard – something I am sure everyone can relate to on some level.”

The first of the candles, Trapped Freedom, evokes feelings of the soul’s search for freedom with wood, floral, rose, amber and oud notes. Meanwhile, Controlled Chaos, the second candle in the home fragrance line, uses woody, incense and balsamic notes to signify controlled chaos in one’s life. With notes of citrus, bergamot, powdery, mimosa, white lilac, amber, musk, woody, soft sandalwood, the final candle, Loud Silence, paints a picture of two people, no longer connected, where the silence created by the void between them is louder than their desire for being together.

All candles are hand poured into individually made artistically designed cement holders which come in three shades, grey, black, and white. Each candle is made of a blend of natural waxes which are free of animal products and testing.
