Looking back at the past twelve months, it’s clear that 2016 has been an excellent year for everyone at MW Luxury Packaging.
MW have worked on a top secret Victoria Beckham/Estée Lauder campaign, manufacturing a black leather make-up case with fine gold detailing and a touch-activated mirror. They’ve created a limited edition carry case for the Sonos PLAY 1: Blue Note speakers, drawing on the years of experience to craft something truly evocative and timeless. They’ve won industry awards for their work, walking away from the Starpack Awards 2016 with bronze and silver trophies.
Now that the Christmas season has rolled around, MW have decided to celebrate the year’s successes by setting their sights on something a little different. “With the nights getting longer, the days getting crisper and the festive season on our doorstep, the team has come together to create a unique Christmas present for our clients and subscribers.”
MW’s gift of choice? A luxury scented candle housed in a characteristically elegant, hand assembled MW pack.
Made using a rigid grey board substructure, this multi-faceted triangular pack is cased in a protective sleeve, bearing pristine spot UV varnish to evoke the beautiful designs within. Take the pack out and you’ll find it wrapped in matt black soft touch paper, double foiled with a bespoke Christmas design. On the exterior, gold holly leaves and mistletoe nestle against black, behind a delicate silver robin.
Slip open the case using the black grosgrain ribbon and you’ll be met with the scent of mulled wine, winter spices and Christmas evenings by the fireside. Here sits MW elegant little candle, resting against a white interior patterned with gold foil images of handpicked ingredients.
This candle was made to be placed on a darkened windowsill or above a crackling fire. Once it’s been lit, you can sit back with a glass of mulled wine and a classic Christmas film; the gorgeous perfume infusion of seasonal fruits and spices will turn the coldest of nights into a warm and cosy festive escape.
“We created this candle and its matching pack because we love getting the opportunity to show off our expertise in the development and manufacturing of a complex, luxury pack. Ultimately, it’s the MW take on Christmas indulgence, and we can’t wait to share it with you. That’s why we’ve made a handful of our candles available to a few lucky followers.”
