MAISON by Amanda Dyer is a chic homeware brand that produces the highest quality products for the modern home.
The brainchild of former supermodel and mother of two, Amanda Dyer, the brand has a very simple philosophy – to produce the finest quality products that caters for the purveyors of luxury & design.
Amanda was discovered as a model at the tender age of 14 and by the time she was 18, had lived in Tokyo, London, Milan, New York, Paris, Greece and Germany where she had worked for the world’s biggest designers and fashion brands whilst gracing numerous covers of the most famous fashion magazines. During this time, she discovered that she had a unique relationship with scent and was instantly drawn into the world of perfumery and luxury scents.
It wasn’t until years later that her obsession with luxury candles started to take center stage and she decided to take action and create a range of the finest quality scented candles, which took nearly a year to develop.
Amanda collaborated with one of the best fragrance consultants from Paris who had worked for the biggest perfumeries in France and together they began their magical journey to create Maison’s signature Collection Privee range – CALM, FOCUS and PLAY.
Besides scented candles, Amanda has already started development on an expanded range of diffusers, soaps, room sprays and a few other delicious surprises.
We invite you to join Amanda on this very special aromatic adventure as she explores some of the most beautifully curated scents from Asia and brings them to the world through a medley of gorgeous homeware products.
No. 1 (CALM)
Run a warm bath, open a nice bottle of wine and make sure to play some jazz before releasing this charming & tranquilizing scent into your world. Cedarwood was used to help eradicate the mind from anxiety, fear, insecurity & stress. Used for thousands of years in the east for a wide range of complaints including the ‘Common Flu’, Cinnamon also helps with emotional & mental fatigue.
We incorporated Sandalwood to play the role of a naturally refreshing perfume which doubles up to fray exhaustion & burnout. Ylang Ylang is the true ‘show stopper’ as it not only helps suppresses anger and mood swings, but also cocoons the scent to form a multi layered aroma that will enlighten your senses and help you slow things down a little.
No. 2 (FOCUS)
Improving your focus can make you a better employee or student as well as a happier and more organized person – but let’s face it, we can all do with a helping hand from time to time. The FOCUS candle combines some very powerful ingredients to help evoke a sense of readiness and sharpened awareness. Mint & Basil combine to combat fatigue and exhaustion, while undertones of Geranium helps with mood imbalance and expels stress.
We used Lemongrass in this medley because it really helps the mind deal with fatigue & mental confusion, while naturally deodorizing to cleanse your environment. The magic that unites this crisp & revitalizing scent together is Petitgrain, an oil produced from the leaves and twigs of the same tree that produces the orange blossom oil – one of the classic ingredients of eau-de-cologne.
Time to start your engines!
No. 1 (PLAY)
When in the mood to have some ‘fun’ or simply want to brighten up the room at your next dinner party, the PLAY candle is here to help. Patchouli has been used as an aphrodisiac for hundreds of years as it puts the spark back in the bedroom for both men and women by stimulating the sexual hormones, estrogen & testosterone. Just to be sure, we have also added Fenugreek – known as nature’s “party starter” which helps with maintaining healthy levels of these hormones.
The undertone of Nutmeg brings out the cheeky side of the scent as it blends together a refreshing and uplifting aroma. So next time you want to get the party started, this intoxicating aroma with sensual overtones will certainly help get everybody in the mood.
Warning: this candle wants to party!
One thing I judge a candle on is it’s scent and how long that scent lasts, and these beautiful candles just keep smelling great – unlike a few other big names in town. I look forward to seeing what else you guys come up with.
Big kiss from a big fan xx
These candles smell great and burn really well. Simply outstanding!
OK, so scented candles are everywhere and we are spoilt for choices but these amazing candles from Masion by Amanda Dyer are simply stunning. My husband bought me the whole range and they simply smell divine and to my surprise, they last for a very long time. I’m keeping an eye on this brand to see what they do next..
Maison candles are unlike your typical candle. For a start they are made of organic wax, which means you do not breath in artificial chemicals when you light it! The quality of the fragrance used is very luxurious, you can feel it even when it’s not lit. It comes in a gorgeous package, reflective of the overall quality of the whole product, making it the ideal gift for every occasion!
I can’t believe no one has reviewed these yet–they are HG!! I am something of a scent addict, and much to my surprise, these are some of the nicest candles I have ever tried!!the trow is so powerful and lasting, the whole room smelled divine for a couple of days after !!they are expensive but come in a decent size and it would last me for a while N3 is my favorite !such a sophisticated luxurious scent..
