To celebrate the launch of our new Candle Collection, we were lucky to collaborate with Spanish illustrator, Joel Miñana, to merge artistry and fragrance in five vibrant scented candles. This partnership celebrates the essence of Spain's rich heritage and the creative spirit that ignites Carner Barcelona.
Join us on a journey of inspiration and discover the stories behind each fragrance, as Joel's illustrations beautifully encapsulate their unique character.
Santísimo - Palo Santo:
A Moment of Tranquility and Harmony
More than just a candle; Santísimo offers a dedicated space and time in your day to relax, unwind, and find harmony. When conceptualizing the visual representation of this woody scent, Joel was deeply inspired by the grounding energy of Palo Santo and sought to capture its essence in his artwork. “Each stroke of the brush was an invitation for people to connect with their beliefs.” - Joel Miñana.
Flamenca - Orange Blossom:
The Fusion of Passion and Culture
Welcome to Andalucía! Inspired by the dance and culture of this region, Joel's design weaves together the threads of history and sensuality. “My aim was to capture the essence of deep-rooted traditions and the vibrant emotions that flow through every movement of flamenco.” - Miñana.
The enchanting blend of bergamot, orange flower, and musk creates a scented story where to allow your imagination run wild. - Joel Miñana.
Na Blanca - Fig Leaves:
Embracing the Tranquility of Formentera's Iconic Fig Tree
Where tranquility and nature intertwine in a captivating fragrance."The green scent of Na Blanca reminded me of the peaceful moments I've spent beneath this famous fig tree in Formentera. It's a scent that encapsulates the beauty and simplicity found within stillness. Similar to the effect of my illustration.” - Miñana.
Close your eyes, breathe in the soothing aroma, and let the essence of fig leaves wash over you, transporting you to a state of pure bliss.
Colmado - Tomato Leaves:
A Nostalgic Connection to Childhood
"This candle took me on a journey down memory lane, reliving the joy of picking fresh tomatoes from the local colmado with my grandmother." Joel's evocative design serves as a gentle reminder of the beauty found in life's simplest pleasures and the connections we hold dear. The candle’s fragrance, a harmonious blend of tomato leaves, black currant, and musk, unveils a captivating scent that transcends time.
Habana - Vanilla:
A sensory journey that captures the warmth, energy, and cultural tapestry of Habana with the perfect blend of bergamot, vanilla, and sandalwood. "My illustration for this vanilla-scented candle is meant to transport people to the heart of Habana, where the air is infused with the intrigue and allure of new beginnings," says Joel Miñana. Feel the warmth on your skin, hear the rhythmic beats of music in the air, and embrace the spirit of diversity and creativity that pulsates through the streets.
