SKANDINAVISK is 2 English chaps, Shaun and Gerry, who fell in love with 2 blonde Scandinavian girls 15 years ago and never left.
After each moving to the region, working for 2 big American multinationals and living between Copenhagen and Stockholm, we also fell gradually in love with the Scandinavian way of life - the focus on life's small moments, the priority of family over career, the cycle to the office, the return home at 4pm, the raw nature, the endless summers. It's an enviable lifestyle that even the bitterest winter can't dilute (alright, -22 outside your door is a little too bitter).
And we believe the absolute essence of Scandinavian lifestyle is right here - in the colour, scent, light and warmth of a flickering candle flame and a glow that not only burrows deep through the wax, but one which nourishes the soul too. After all, Scandinavians use more candles than any other nation in the world. They use them morning, noon and night. 12 months a year. Because they know that a candle makes any moment softer, more informal, more cosy. And they are the world's happiest peoples, so we think that's something worth sharing.
