An olfactory tribute to Colette

Lola James Harper Colette concept store candle and room scent

Colette may be no more, but I like this olfactory tribute to the OG Paris concept store. Fragrance and lifestyle brand, Lola James Harper has reproduced the classic figgy Colette candle, ‘L’Air de Colette‘ in a newly reconfigured candle and room spray (from £35). It’s the old scent with a new name, ‘213 Rue Saint-Honoré Air‘, so if you’re mourning the demise of one of the best retail destinations of our time, here’s the perfect olfactory memento.

I remember discovering Lola James Harper’s candles in Colette. It was the amber vessels and modernist-minimalist packaging that grabbed my attention first, then I spent a good while smelling all the candles and marvelling at how aptly the names matched the smells (the candles are named after places and situations). ‘213 Rue Saint-Honoré Air‘ will be available from Lola James Harper from 15 January 2018.
