Candle Art - 26 Oct 2010
A candle to boost prosperity in business?
Every now and again a novel and mildly quirky piece of news comes our way and we feel compelled to share it with you.
Candle Art in Spain makes high quality candles from beeswax and a mix of roots, plants and seeds. 300 varieties are produced to touch on all the hurdles we're likely to encounter on life's magical and sometimes turbulent journey - love, money, employment, studies, relationships - there's a candle for every situation.
But we're most taken with the herbal petition candle for business. Candle Art say it "improves job quality and everything related to productivity and abundance". Best used during a waxing moon or on a Thursday. What more can we say, maybe both Brian's (Cowen and Lenihan) could do with one burning gently in their offices at Leinster House.

Elemis Exotic - 01 Oct 2010
Second perfume launched by top beauty product company.
Back in April we told you that Elemis had launched it's first ever fragrance simply called 'Elemis'. Clearly, this has been a successful digression away from traditional beauty products for the 20-year old company and Elemis has now launched perfume number two, Eau de Parfum Exotic.
The blend for this new fragrance includes Sri Lankan Cinnamon Bark, Pink Pepper and Clove Bud Oil, with additional Ylang Ylang, Indian Jasmine Sambac and White Tuberose. As you know, I truly love the descriptive terms used to sell perfume and this one is particularly evocative because it's actually true! The blurb describes how the fragrance 'evolves....deepening and darkening into a mysterious fusion....scented with Cedarwood grown in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Sensual. Passionate. Wonderfully Warm". There is no doubt, this is a warm perfume, and if you close you eyes you could definitely imagine yourself high in the Atlas mountains, watching the sunset and breathing in the delicious North African smells. Plus it gets better the longer you wear it, a bonus for those of us who like to feel enveloped in our perfume of choice for longer than the ten minutes immediately after our quick spray.
Available from September 2010 at Elemis spas around Ireland, check out our Advanced Spa Search for a full list. Or simply ask Louis Walsh where he bought his! Spa Search
