Ikea Byredo candles

New for winter 2021: Osynlig, which in Swedish means “invisible”. A collection of scented candles born from the union between the Swedish furniture giant and the Byredo brand, which creates intoxicating fragrances for the body. Thirteen candles, each different in scent and color, inserted in a colored ceramic jar.

The union of the two brands is very significant: on the one hand the most popular furniture brand in the world, on the other the refinement of Byredo perfumes. Each Ikea-Byredo candle will be characterized by two colors with reference to the essences that compose it.
Osynlig candles will be divided by categories:

  • fresh
  • floral
  • woody

Among the various formulations stand out fig and cypress, cotton and apple blossom, tea leaves and verbena, pomegranate and amber.

Byredo candles are available online on the IKEA website and in physical Ikea stores starting from November 2020.

Estimated cost between 4.00 and 20.00 euros each.

Ikea candles are bad?

Wax and paraffin are the main ingredients present in the composition of Ikea candles, both of which are generally harmless to humans.

As for fragrances, these could cause disturbance and annoyance to allergic or hypersensitive subjects.

Here are some rules to limit the presumed toxicity of candles:

  • burn only one candle at a time and for a maximum of 3 or 4 hours
  • make sure the wick is cut before each use
  • protect candles in airtight containers to avoid contact with dust or other airborne particles
