Set the scene for romance with our collection of scented candles by Un Soir A L’Opera (‘An Evening at the Opera’). New to both our West London and Barbados showrooms, this new brand is the marriage of two worlds: that of opera, ballet and music with that of fragrances and perfume. Made in France by traditional candle makers, the Madam Butterfly candle captures Opera’s most enduring tale of love with notes of Sakura Cherry Tree and Verbena. The Swan Lake candle carries the fragrance of white flowers and fresh grass whilst the Don Giovani candle evokes the perfume of incense escaping from church doors. Atmospheric and intense, these candles are the ultimate gift for Valentine’s Day.  Try pairing them with a box of ‘Love’ or ‘Perfect Match’ matches (13) to leave your Valentine in no doubt about your feelings!

Celebrate the night in style with extra special glassware. Our set of multi coloured champagne flutes (2) will create a stunning impact at your next soiree or curl up by the fire with a set of two glass champagne flutes with gold star detailing (4). This elegant design is based on an engraved 19th century champagne glass held in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum. If only all love affairs were as long lasting…

A set of two handmade, lavender filled fish (5) made from Liberty Print Cotton Lawn fabric and Dupion Silk will keep clothes and linen smelling sweet whilst our hand embroidered velvet hearts (10) make a charming addition to a wardrobe door handle or room key. A vintage style heart magnifying glass will make sure you spot Mr. or Mrs. Right on the horizon (and makes a lovely accessory for a dressing table or feminine writing desk in the meantime).

Keep your loved ones close to your heart wherever you go with a stylish, purse-sized travel frame (12) or make sure you’re never far from your loved ones thoughts this Valentine’s day by presenting them with your picture in a charming miniature diamante or pearl frame (3 and 11).

For anyone whose soul mate is yet to walk into their life (or perhaps walks on four legs instead of two) our doggy door mats (1) and trinket trays (14) are perfect for self-gifting or for treating a friend who needs a pick-me-up!

Shop in store at our West London or Barbados showrooms or online with Trouva. Orders can also be placed by phone – call 020 8943 4144 or contact us on connect@jennyblanc.com for more information.
