Oré Mi's Honey & Tobacco candle has top notes of sweet honey. At the heart, there is a blend of cinnamon & nutmeg, while the base note contains amber, patchouli, and musk to complete the scent profile.
Igi (ig-ee) means tree but when joined with the word Àwò (Ah-woh) it can be used to refer to the colour brown in Yoruba.
This incense is hand-dipped in London and placed into recyclable Kraft envelopes with our signature Oré mi label on the outside of the packaging.
Consists of x10 sticks and each stick burns for up to 35-40 minutes.
"When I was younger, my dad would bring my siblings and me pure dark honey from his trips home to Nigeria. I was mesmerised by it – its rich, dark colour, its sweetness – and I wanted to make a candle that would represent that wonder.
I combined the sweet, floral honey with earthy tobacco, to bring a deeper note to the profile, along with cinnamon, nutmeg, amber, patchouli, and musk. I would like to think that one day my dad might keep bees on his farm in Nigeria; I need more honey!"
