Scented Candle – Louisa
Louisa means verbena in Moroccan Arabic and in Spanish. ULILI’s perfumer worked on the idea of a gourmand verbena that evokes childhood. Sweet, gourmand and acidulous, Louisa is in some way the “Proust’s Madeleine” of ULILI.
A moment of peace. A scent reviving childhood. At first, senses swing with pleasure when brushed by the lemon flavor of verbena, enhanced by the mischievous sparkle of green mandarin. Then, the soothing effect of Louisa, which lingers with the generous comfort of bitter almond and the milky warmth of sandalwood.

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.
