NOT ALL SANCTUARIES ARE QUIET

L'or de Seraphine understands that for many, respite is not always sought or found in quiet places. We embrace creativity as rejuvenation and decorate the handmade ceramic vessels of our sustainably-sourced candles with vibrant and unique prints.

Experimenting with expression allows us to imprint on the spaces in which we live and HI them with delight.

Express your creative self and make your home your sanctuary in whatever way feels right to you. Explore our fall fragrances and bring them to life with recipes, readings, music and more.

TAMA

The Tama candle draws inspiration from the architecture of the Tama Art University Library designed by Toyo Ito in Japan, incorporating elements of Japanese decor and inspiring collaboration, contemplation, and relaxation.


Rich, woody notes of hinoki and spicy patchouli meld with juniper and clove to create a warm and earthy fragrance. Infused with essential oils, and featuring notes of hinoki, patchouli, juniper, clove and frankincense, No. 23 is soothing and meditative.

STRANGE WEATHER IN TOKYO

Tsukiko is in her late 30s and living alone when one night she happens to meet one of her former high school teachers, 'Sensei', in a bar. He is at least thirty years her senior, retired and, she presumes, a widower. After this initial encounter, the pair continue to meet occasionally to share food and drink sake, and as the seasons pass - from spring cherry blossom to autumnal mushrooms - Tsukiko and Sensei come to develop a hesitant intimacy which tilts awkwardly and poignantly into love. Perfectly constructed, funny, and moving, Strange Weather in Tokyo is a tale of modern Japan and old-fashioned romance, and the perfect novel to cozy up with and get lost in some armchair travel.
