New Sunset Candles Burn to Reveal a Hidden Rainbow of Color

Japanese design studio Nendo (previously) just announced their first product designs for 2016 including the Sunset Candle. On the outside the candle appears completely white, but the inside contains a hidden core of colored wax evoking the hues of a sunset that gradually appears as it burns. Not only does the candle change color, but each stage is scented differently, emitting fragrances of bergamot, lemongrass, sweet marjoram, lavender, and geranium. As most of their products are designed in collaboration with clients, with retailers in Japan, or as concepts, these might not readily be available for sale. However you can see more on their site.
