In a much-anticipated encore, KAHINA™ Giving Beauty joins the master perfumers at ULILI Moroccan Scents in s second candle collaboration, this time drawing inspiration from the city of Taroudant, at the base of the Anti-Atlas Mountains of Southern Morocco from where KAHINA™ sources it’s Argan and Prickly Pear Seed Oils.
The Taroudant candle pays tribute to the spirit of the Berber women who work to harvest the oils at the heart of KAHINA™. Born of an ancient civilization predating Islam in Morocco, the Berbers refer to themselves by the name “AMAZIGH” translated as “Free Humans”. This spirit is embedded in all of KAHINA™ Giving Beauty products and is captured in the scent of this candle.
A refreshing base of Neroli, an aromatic orange flower, with notes of Laurel, Basil and Rosemary captivate the senses…just as the bright morning rays of winter sun cast over TAROUDANT have lifted and inspired the AMAZIGH Culture.
ULILI Founder, Omar Benjelloun, studied perfumery at the Grasse Institute of Perfumery in France and uses scented memories of his childhood in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco as his influence. ULILI works with master craftsmen in Casablanca to create the reusable ceramic vessels.
Mind Body Green calls the Taouroudant Candle an ideal Self-Care Gift. “This clean, richly scented candle has a base of neroli, laurel, basil, and rosemary said to harken back to the Moroccan city of Taroudant, at the base of the Anti-Atlas mountains. A thoughtful gift for someone with a streak of wanderlust. And when it’s done, the ceramic holder makes for a beautiful teacup.”
From Ramshackle Glam: “The Taroudant candle pays tribute to the spirit of the Berber women who work to harvest the oils used by eco-friendly beauty brand Kahina, and comes in a gorgeous, reusable handmade ceramic jar. The scent has a Neroli base, with Laurel, Basil and Rosemary, and is lovely and wintery, with a slightly herbal element that freshens it up.”
