The Queen of Creative Collaborations takes us through her candle-making process
Heart Evangelista has a new hobby to share to her fans: making aromatherapy candles! The Queen of Creative Collaborations just worked with RLC Residences for an exclusive line of aromatherapy candles for homeowners of RLC Residences developments.
Evangelista showed her process of learning and creating these candles in her latest YouTube vlog, where she spoke with a candle-making specialist to help her design a set of soy scented candles. The specialist also chose notes that fit Evangelista’s personality and art, which they describe as “happy, vibrant, and passionate,” such as Powder, Musk, Vanilla Orchid, Tobacco, Amber, and Cherry, among others.
She also took her viewers to the process of creating her candles, including choosing the containers which she wanted to be “basic but elegant and luxe.” She also personally chose the design of the box which will be given to RLC Residences clients, homeowners.
In the end, Evangelista was able to come up with three scents: the RLC Residences soft talc-like fragrance, Holiday Sparkle that captures the festivity of the season, and her very own Love Marie that features unique and beautifully balanced notes to evoke feelings of happiness, vibrancy, and passion.
Evangelista says about her collaboration with RLC Residences, “This candle is very special to me, especially because I’ve been travelling a lot. I love being at home, [so] as much as possible, wherever [I] go [I] want to take that feeling of being at home—and that is having a beautiful candle.”
Evangelista’s vlog also showed how she surprised RLC Residences homeowners with a lunch, including a new homeowner who works overseas, as well as a family and a Millennial home investor, where she personally handed them the scented candles with the brand’s teddy bear.
The candle collection is part of the ongoing collaboration called Love Marie Designs with RLC Residences. The project aims to produce initiatives that will inspire Filipinos to design their best lives inside their own space.
RLC Residences Marketing Head and Chief Integration Officer Karen Cesario says about the collaboration with Evangelista, “We, at RLC Residences, believe that the right scent can make people feel at home. This belief sparked the idea of creating a special line of candles for our brand. There’s no better person for us to share this initiative but Heart Evangelista, who’s known for her impeccable taste and style for finer things in life.”
“Life is all about creating memories, and a scent will always trigger a certain sentiment. This is why I wanted to create a scented candle collection because I wanted to bring “home” [with me] wherever I go,” says Heart.
