ILLUME x Bloomingville FAQ
How many products does the series consist of?
ILLUME x Bloomingville is presented through two collections - Essential and Seasonal - which contain a total of 9 different fragrances. The six carefully selected fragrances in the Essentials collection are all available in a series of four scented candles and a scented oil with scented sticks.

The seasonal collection, which consists of 3 fragrances, compliments the autumn with slightly stronger scents and with references to nature and Christmas - the series beautifully matches the colors of autumn.
Where is ILLUME x Bloomingville produced?
The products are produced in Europe. The essential fragrance oils are purchased from established fragrance houses in France and Spain, that have been producing fragrances for generations. The scents are mixed with wax in Sweden at a company that specializes in scented candles. The wax is a purely natural product, made from a blend of rapeseed, soy and other vegetable oils - all free of genetically modified oils.
What are the products made of?
The candles are made from natural wax and essential fragrance oils. Choosing natural wax is an environmentally conscious choice. Compared to paraffin wax, natural wax is non-toxic and burns cleanly, slowly, and produces a negligible amount of soot. The wick is made of 100% cotton. The diffusers' reeds are made of cellulose and are 100% degradable.

Does the light soot? What can be done to avoid it?

Is it possible to reduce the smell that the products emit in the room?
It is possible, but the scents are already carefully measured, so the scent is pleasant in the room. The more sticks, the more scent is emitted by the diffusers, and if you want less scent in the room, you can advantageously add fewer sticks in the diffuser and thus reduce the scent intensity.
Are the glasses handmade - and can they be used again?
Two of the glasses are mouth blown and they can, like all the other glass containers, be recycled.

The series is developed in a color that fits into all homes - it can be placed in both the Nordic and the Cozy home. They are intended as an add-on to the decor, they fit in everywhere due to the neutral and calm color scale.
Will there be more products in the series in the future?
We hope to be able to expand the collection with more products over time.
