Ecoya is one of the leading eco-luxe home fragrance and body care companies around the world. Their brief was clear – creating a luxury box packaging for the limited edition “Caramelised Fig” scented candle, specially released for Christmas.
The packaging design is a gold wrapped box with a ribbon around it, just like a Christmas present. It sounds deceptively simple but it took multiple prototypes of the box to find the best way to wrap the standard die shape with a ribbon. The solution combined embossing, metallic ink and varnish. The same metallic ink was then used on the candle name tag. Both were finished using Ecoya branded wax-effect seals.
The project was showcased by Victionary Press (Hong Kong) in their International Design Compendium “Gold & Silver”.
