The four beautiful fragrances that make up Ecoya’s Decadence candle range were developed by Isaac Sinclair, one of the world’s most prominent perfumers. Each of the four distinct candle designs takes inspiration from a powerful woman of the Art Deco period, and the bold modernity of their era. There’s New York writer Dorothy Parker, Parisian dancer Josephine Baker, Shanghai’s singer and actress Zhou Zuan and London socialite Elizabeth Ponsonby.

Urbis has five Ecoya Decadence candles in your choice of Zhou Xuan or Dorothy Park to give away. Each candle is valued at $99.95 each. Email urbiscomps@agm.co.nz with your name and contact details to go into the draw.

Competition closes on 23 August, 2012. See competition terms and conditions.

Inspiration - Zhou Xuan. 1930’s Shanghai was known as the ‘Paris of the Orient’, and the jewel in its crown was the glamorous Zhou Xuan. A singer and star of the screen, she was integral to the transformation of the qipao dress or cheongsam, which during her era took on a life of its own due to a higher hemline and dramatic figure hugging lines. 

‘The oriental exoticism of Shanghai is captured here in dark wood and musk, with just a hint of vanilla, boldly wrapping a fresh composition of bergamot and lemon in a rich, floral heart of jasmine, ylang ylang and rosewood.’

Inspiration: Dorothy Parker. With a pen as sharp as her wit, Dorothy Parker’s name was synonymous with the city of New York during the Art Deco years. A poet, satirist and member of a secret circle of wordsmiths and bon vivants who helped define New York in the 1920’s, Ms Parker’s sass epitomised her hometown of choice and meant she was never afraid to speak her mind. 

‘A true reflection of the vibrant metropolitan chic that is New York, this rich, warm and spicy fragrance combines the subtle influences of muguet, carnation and rosewood upon a rich base of patchouli, musk and tonka bean.’
