NAMES is excited to announce AMEN, an independent luxury candle brand that embodies sustainability, craftsmanship, and artistic expression. Handmade in Grasse, the capital of world perfumery, AMEN's collection merges the talents of renowned art historian Diana Picasso and Yoga Meccas worldwide. These exquisite collections, named 7 Chakra Candles, Luminous Beings light sculptures, and AMEN Picasso, emit captivating fragrances and promote a plastic-free future through sustainable materials.
7 Chakra Candles
In collaboration with Dr Simrat Kaur, dermatologist, yoga practitioner, and founder of Brazilian wellness centre Medicina da Consciência, AMEN introduces 7 Chakra Candles, which transcend the realm of fragrance by incorporating the principles of energy balancing. Each candle is carefully infused with scents that align with the body's seven chakras, promoting a sense of harmony and well-being.
Dr Kaur describes chakras as, 'seven main energetic vortexes, each related to a gland and a plexus of nerves… as they are perceptive frequencies, each chakra can be expanded and balanced through our senses, through sensorial stimuli such as essential oils and candles.'
The hand-poured vegan wax, reforested wood covers, and biodegradable mycelium mushroom packaging further reinforce the commitment to sustainability, ensuring that even the packaging aligns with the core values of the collection.
AMEN's light sculptures are an exceptional testament to the convergence of art and candle-making created by model and ceramist, Kathrina Kaminiski. Each candle is meticulously crafted to embody abstract forms and sculptural inspiration, turning a simple candle into a captivating masterpiece that celebrates intersexuality. These sculptures become a focal point in any space, igniting conversation and inspiring creativity.
The one-of-a-kind ceramics were recently featured at an exhibition at Dover Street Parfum Market in Paris, attended by Diana Picasso and photographer Jean Pierrot. The Luz candle can be nestled inside the larger sensual sculptures, or live on its own, adding elegance and movement to any surface.
"We live in a world of angles and classifications; nature doesn't want to put you in a box." - Kathrina Kaminski
AMEN Picasso Candles
The AMEN Picasso candles truly reflect the brand's dedication to art and luxury. Collaborating with the renowned art historian Diana Picasso, these candles pay homage to her grandfather, the legendary artist Pablo Picasso.
