La Montana Cloudburst
La Montana Cloudburst

On the face of it, the last thing you probably want to smell is rain especially when we’ve had so much of it recently – when it’s not hailing, that is! However, as it transpires there is a way difference between the wet-brick scent of inner London after a cloudburst and a Spanish mountainside after a storm.

La Montana candles focus on their surroundings in a mountain village of Spain, so all of the scents are very personal to the founders. Sometimes, this gets a little lost – what feels relevant and personal to a creator doesn’t always translate to the olfactory senses of another. But, I haven’t met a La Montana candle that I haven’t liked even if I can’t quite relate to the minutae of the inspiration.

If left to my imagination, I can believe that this dewy, aniseedy, herbal scent is exactly what lush, post-rain terrain might smell like – they’ve caught the wetness and the earthiness as well as the herb element. La Montana Cloudburst is a very pleasant scent to have hanging around in the air – I’d definitely rather have a replica of post rain Mediterranean than experience it myself though, thinking back to a rather wet weekend in Spain.
