Le Calendrier Olfactif 2011: A Scented Calendar for 2011

Le Calendrier Olfactif 2011 is the limited edition Scented Calendar from the Paris-based perfume house Quintessence that makes some of the most exquisite fragranced candles. Along with a lovely calendar for your wall, you get one fragranced, individually designed candle for each month of the year. Each scent and glass container were designed by a personality.

12 months, 
12 celebrities who participated in the creation of a perfume,
12 exclusive fragrances, imagined like small stories,
12 scented candles,
In many civilizations, lighting a candle is a symbol of hope, as it brings warmth and light to children in needs, and every candle from this calendar carriers some of this hope.
For every calendar sold, Quintessence will give 24 euros to La Voix de l'Enfant, a French organization dedicated since 1981 at protecting abused children.
