The candle that screams summer

nivea candle

Who knew a Nivea sun cream candle could be so damn intoxicating?! Invigorating wood tones, transparent flower tones and white spice notes create an incomparable experience for the senses. The delicious fragrance creation with the unmistakable scent of the NIVEA SUN sunscreen immediately serves up the lightness of summer, sunshine, love and pure joy.

The showstopper candle

Add to the ambience of your room with this light-up candle. Silver sequins in the gel surrounding the candle glow and glisten for an iridescent finish. Simply light the candle as usual which will trigger the LED lights that wrap around the candle, creating a beautiful warm glow. Scented with notes of neroli, lime and basil, the candle infuses your home with a citrusy aroma.

Rose lovers, this is for you

A candle to lighten the mood

This delicious smelling candle is infused with immortelle, basil, cypress, eucalyptus and litsea cubeba for a zesty, fresh aroma that'll instantly lighten the mood. Light on an evening and you'll feel as though you've been whisked away to the French countryside, enjoying a glass of vino.
