Savage Bloom

Alexander McQueen’s new candle collection is inspired by the tension between light and darkness
By Ella Joyce | Fashion | 28 June 2023

In a first for the house, Alexander McQueen is introducing candles to its repertoire. Comprised of three scents – Ghost Flower, Pagan Rose and Savage Bloom – each is conceived by a different performer given an open brief, using the storytelling nature of McQueen’s iconic runway collections as a starting point to bring the scents to life. Finely crafted from black mineral waxes and rapeseed wax, Ghost Flower embodies notes of fresh freesia and patchouli aroma, while Pagan Rose consists of wild rose and earthy peat tones and Savage Bloom blends warm oud and honeyed tuberose

Inspired by the central theme of juxtaposition, the light and dark notes brought together are mirrored in the luxurious egg-shaped black lacquered packaging complete with a silver or gold lid.

Alexander McQueen’s candle collection is available in selected stores and online now.
