Details

Oum Rabie is the name of a long river in Morocco. The name means Mother of Spring. This scent is inspired by a walk through the blooming orange trees at the mouth of the Oum Rabie. The concordance of citrus, aromatic notes and fresh spices is inspired by the light of the first rays of spring sunshine.

On the river-banks of the Oum Rabie, covered in blossoming oleander, a young shepherdess is singing a Berber poem.

Her crystalline voice rustles through the leaves in an orange grove bathed in the first spring sunshine.

Her song reaches the blue sky, carrying with it the notes of citrus and aromatic plants.

*** Please note: The 100g candle does not have the name "Oum Rabie" written on the candle vessel as shown, just the Oum Rabie graphic***

The candles are cast and handcrafted in ULILI’s workshop in Casablanca. They are made with vegetal waxes and beeswax harvested from the foothills of the Anti Atlas in south Morocco.

This special beeswax provides each one of our candles with an amber color and a honeyed touch.

ULILI candles are designed to create a strong, yet delicate release of its fragrances as well as a harmonious melting of its waxes.

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.

The Ceramics - Each piece undergoes several oven firings and hand manipulations for the lacquering and screenprinting. The crackles on these chalices are obtained thanks to "Raku", a Japanese technique used in Pottery.

Brand Info

Once upon a time, there was a fertile plain in Morocco.

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.
