And the winners are…
Maison D’Amore was founded in 2012 by Hayley Bonham and Nadia Rosa, and inspired by their late grandmothers, Mary-Ellen Maison and Dora D’Amore, plus the passion the duo both hold for fashion, art, photography and fine fragrance. Australian-designed and Parisian-made, the candles come in I and II (or his and hers) with the black being a wonderfully masculine tobacco and spice-scented power candle (if you wanted to put a face to it, think Jon Hamm) and the white being more delightfully feminine, floral and pretty (think Jared Leto).
These babies have a 60-hour burn time, are $95 each and will crank your fancy pants cred up to 100. Maison D’Amore is exclusively sold at Harrolds Luxury department stores in Sydney and Melbourne and available online at maisondamore.com. Follow them for plenty of fine posts on instagram @maisondamore.
