You have proberly heard about the danish word ”hygge” its sort of the DNA of being danish. But what is it really about? Hygge is difficult to translate, you actually can´t! Its a feeling, a sense of being, but it could be something like the quote mentioned above. Then hygge is sort of a cultural thing, if you were to find a thing that could translate the word, it would in my opinion be a candle. For scandinavian people, and I know it best from my country since I´m danish, candles are such an important thing in our everyday life, from summer to winther. A candle light can sort of soften the moment and bring people closer together, and its very intimate.
This blog post is actually about candles, because who doesn´t love candles especially in the winther time? I guess a lot of people do and therefor I wanted to share a new favourite of mine. The ”hygge” candle from the brand Skandinavisk. The candle could be the perfect gift to someone you love or just to yourself. The scent is sweet, but also clean at the same time and it burns 50hours. It comes with a lid of wood, which you use to extinguish the flame. All in all, this candle is very put together and simplistic just as Scandinavia, and it would look pretty no matter where you put it.
So if you would likea bit of danish hygge in your life, this candle is the perfect way to start, paired with a good cup of coffee and a snugly blanket.
I hope you "hygger" - are having a good time
