How Champagne Smells

A firework of fruity effervescence. Crisp and refreshing, bringing to life memories of celebrations past and present.

The Joy of a Fragrant Champagne Candle

Champagne is the scent of celebrations: weddings, special dates, graduations, and birthdays, and more. The dancing flame casts a light over the room, at once calming and exciting. Soothing candlelight and, the combination of the aroma and the light relaxes and sets the mood.

The Scent Origins of Champagne

Lovers intertwine arms and take a sip. A bottle smashes against a ship. The winner shakes and releases a fountain of white foam.

Champagne, the drink of celebration, of success, of excellence. This iconic sparkling wine is world-famed for its connotations of exclusivity and class, not to mention its exquisite taste.

What makes a champagne a champagne? Well, the clue’s in the name. Champagne can only be called so if it has come from the Champagne region of France, a short ride north west of Paris.

Here, in the hills and fields surrounding the ancient city of Reims, the world’s supply of sparkling, delicious, champagne is created. Green fields roll over hills, uninterrupted but for farmhouses and church spires into the distance.

This is the atmosphere the candle captures. A sense of rural France, of an artisan craft, ready for release, at your pleasure.

Your Champagne Journey

If you want to follow your bottle to its source, the champagne region is a fantastic place for a short trip. Two days is the perfect duration for your first visit. The longer trips come later – when the champagne addiction has taken hold.

Most travellers arrive by two-hour train from Paris and take up residence in either Reims or Epernay. Then it’s a short car journey to the five main wine growing regions. These are Montagne de Reims (pinot noir), Valée de la Marne (Pinot Meunier), Côte des Blancs (Chardonnay), Aube (non-vintage), and Côte de Sézanne (chardonnay-type grapes).

When it comes to the day, remember to eat a proper breakfast. You’ll be drinking all day, with many first tastings taking place as early as 10 am. Wear sensible shoes, and don’t assume it’ll be hot year-round – this part of France can be very ‘English’ in its weather.

Another thing to bear in mind is that unlike in more casual regions like the Napa Valley or Bordeaux, walk-ins are not hugely welcomed. Booking ahead is vital, and being late can quickly lead to your booking being canceled.
