Scented Candle – M’goun
M’goun is the name of the second highest mountain of Morocco (4071 m). M’goun dominates the Rose Valley known as Kelaate M’gouna. M’goun‘s perfume is also a wild and mysterious rose.
His name dwells in the caves, in the trees and the mountain streams. His perfume is a blend of the bud on the almond tree’s branch and the damp red soil after a storm. His voice echoes in the hot Sahara desert wind. Fields of roses blossom at his feet. His heart beats between the tattooed lines and under the silver bracelets.

The wicks are made of natural cotton and all our candles are paraffin free.
The Screenprinted Characters are illustrated by the artist Zineb Benjelloun. Each one of the candles comes to life, inspired by the characters of a traditional Spanish card game played by several generations of Moroccans.
ULILI has been working for several years with a ceramist from the city of Tangier in order to create the containers of candles and diffusing hands.
Many oven firings and multiple hand manipulations for the lacquering and screenprinting are needed to produce ULILI’s ceramics.

It was called ULILI by our ancestors. They named it after a small tree which colorfully adorned the plain with gorgeous pink and white roses.
On such fertile land, the Romans built Volubilis, where seven centuries later, Idriss became king. Today, only a few remnants and a mausoleum remain, adorned as always by the thriving colorful flora.
Just like the flowering tree whose essence bears the memory of a thousand years, ULILI candles in their amber wax capture the fragrant memories that inhabit the Moroccan imagination.
