There's no reason why grooms can't have a bouquet, especially if it’s one that can sweeten your life beyond your wedding day.
Balzac says that the candle's androgynous appeal and sensuality make it perfect for a groom's room.
"Without any hesitation I would recommend 1642, because the fragrance is elegant and unisex, but also because the packaging is romantic and intriguing," Pioch Balzac says.
The packaging is inspired by one of Adriaen Van Utrecht’s Vanitas, painted in 1642, thus the name.
Strike a match and you are greeted with a heady mix of violet, blackberry and cedarwood once the phosphorus clears. It’s love at first sniff.
