As every Summer, Cerabella is living in a contradiction:
while we calm the Mediterranean sun by drinking icy lemonade, we are styling the photo shoots for next season candles’ catalogue.
This beautiful moment, when we live cold Winter days in Summer dresses, has always make us smile…

Inclassifiable artist Nuria Mora ‘s house is featured in Elle Decor Spain last issue. There we have discovered that her exquisite taste for colour defintively spreads further from her artwork.Multifaceted artist, Nuria has exhibited her works in renowned museums such as Tate Modern and the Miró Foundation. Although her collaborations include brands such as Loewe, Sybilla, El País and Cirque du Soleil, her art mostly beautifies the city street walls with colorful murals on geometry and Nature.
Although strongly related to Street Art, her creations go beyond tendences. She works on any kind of surface, from walls to glass or paper and she uses a wide range of techniques such as watercolours, gouache or light projections.
Nuria Mora’s delicious project for Cerabella Arts&Scents collection was Oriental: a 100% vegetal wax scented candle in a vase she decorated with a gold subtle vegetal pattern. The fragrance she chose for this candle evoques an Oriental journey with warm patchouli notes, vainilla orchid hints and a touch of musk. You must burn it to just experience it!
Talking about her language, Rafael Schacter says “Nuria’s work gives a freedom from the everyday noise, a moment of balance within the city, another way of imagining our surroundings”.
This is such a truth!

Our candleshop has provisionally become a market stall to present our new 100% vegetal wax scented candles.
Candles with natural and refreshing fruit scents such as grapefruit peel, pineapple juice, orange squash or sweet melon slice. Each of these perfumes is condensed and patiently waiting to invade the place once the candles are lit. Serious advice: although you may feel the intense fruit notes just leaving the jars opened, these candles MUST be burn. It is nearly an imperative!

Our new candles catalogue offers plenty of strong reasons to lighten up your nights and days:
the sea breeze and the sand under your feet, the vibrant colours of a rooftop party, the red perfume of an hybiscus in bloom or the citronella scent for a insect-free plein-air dinner. Any excuse is good enough to light a candle!

Can you imagine the scent of a drawing?
On the white surface, a delicate couple wanders among the trees. Meanwhile in the wood, there are hunting scenes with horses surrounded by birds and flowers of all kind. What is the fragance of this forest made out of ink?
For Cerabella’s Arts& Scents collection, we wished to turn into a candle the perfumes inspired by the illustrations of several outstanding artists. The genius of La Casita de Wendy created this piece bursting with poetry and natural wood scents.
This Forest Scented Candle is 100% made of vegetal wax and it is scented with cedar, resin and a hint of pine and rosemary leaves. During its 50 hours of burning time, the flame illuminates the glass and the illustrated forest comes to live as in a shadow play .
Inés Aguilar and Iván Martínez are the Madrid fashion designers behind La Casita de Wendy. Besides their collections and their teaching in Fashion Schools, they have taken part in several exhibitons such as “Pasión, diseño español” (Berlin, Wien, Salamanca) or “La Moda Española, tras el espejo” at the Museo Reina Sofía de Madrid and they are now collaborating with Brianda Fitz-James Stuart in different creative projects. Their creations are sold all over the world and they are known for an exquisite colour palette and the contrasted shapes and patterns that they design. Passionate and inspired by music, Nature and tales, imagination is their most essential tool. This candle is such a good example of it all!
