When lovebirds light a Sir Elton John Woodside Garden candle the warm glow will not only illuminate a romantic rendezvous– it will also shine a light on a worthy cause.
The second in a series of Elton John candles by NEST Fragrances, a leading luxury home fragrance and beauty product manufacturer, the scented wax– which is embraced by a translucent chartreuse glass embellished with a gold crown motif– offers an arrangement of floral notes inspired by Elton’s favorite botanical beauties from his gardens at Woodside in Old Windsor, England, including hyacinth, freesia, rose and jasmine.
As with Elton John’s Holiday candles, which made its debut in the fall of 2011, a portion of the proceeds from sales of the Woodside candle will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation, a nonprofit which has become a leader offering innovative HIV prevention programs since its founding in 1993.
“I am very touched that the public responded so enthusiastically to the holiday candles,” said Sir Elton John, Academy Award- and Grammy Award-winning recording artist and founder of the Elton John AIDS Foundation. “All of us at the Foundation are deeply grateful for this outpouring of support for our urgent work. The projects we do with Laura (NEST Fragrance founder and CEO) are very special to me because they bring together two different aspects of my life – my love of scented candles as a key ingredient in home décor and my deep personal commitment to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic. I am particularly excited about the debut of the Woodside Garden candle because I feel that its delicate floral scents and vibrant colors symbolize hope, inspiration and renewal, qualities we can all appreciate and that are much-needed in the lives of people affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. I just know that Woodside Garden will be a big hit this spring!”
The Sir Elton John’s Woodside Garden is available in an 8.1 oz. candle for $38 and can be purchased at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, shop.nestfragrances.com and specialty stores nationwide.
