All & Other Stories Rose Revival products are available at Zalora and in stores at ION Orchard and Raffles City Shopping Centre.
Alexander McQueen Candle Collection
Housed in egg-shaped black lacquered glass, inspired by the storytelling nature of McQueen collections, these candles will add brilliant sophistication to your home.
The collection features three scents, Ghost Flower, Pagan Rose, and Savage Bloom, each that were crafted by a different perfumer with an open brief based on McQueen’s codes.
Ghost Flower combines fresh freesia and peony with earthy patchouli, while Pagan Rose plays with the delicate wild rose and earthy peat. Last but not least, Savage Bloom features tuberose and oud.
Alexander McQueen Candle Collection retails for S$435 each at Selfridges and is available in selected stores worldwide.
