Up until now, Baobab products have only been available to buy in the UK through upmarket department stores including Harrods and Selfridges.
Baoab candles are handcrafted and poured into hand-blown glass vases and have Egyptian cotton wicks. The fragrances are created in Grasse, France.
The new Baoab summer collection, Mikea, also launched at the store at 69 Walton Street. The candles in this collection feature hand-crocheted raffia, created by a Madagascan women’s co-op.
