About 'Calming Park' | The Essence of Beauty

Art, music, spirituality, relaxation and fire. All these combine in art and candle by designer/artist and music curator OLIVIER ROHRBACH, founder of the Swiss brand CALMING PARK, renowned for the high concentration of scented essences in its candles. 

Made in Grasse, France, the world capital of perfume, CALMING PARK scented candles are made of soot-free organic palm wax and paraffin with a 12% perfume concentration. Available online and in select shops and high-end hotel’s SPA in France, Switzerland, Italy, Russia, Korea and the US, the luxurious candles have recently found a second home in Paris, in addition to the Officina Slowear store at Village Royal, they are now available at exclusive Haute boutique COLETTE. The prestigious privately-owned shop has become the premier destination for many visiting Paris.

ROHRBACH has successfully nurtured a cult of relaxation with his inviting luxurious brand. He's collaborated with several gurus from the worlds of fashion, music and visual arts to design and customize limited edition candles including famed designer BRUNO PIETERS  (whose creations are worn by A-listers such as LADY GAGA, ROISIN MURPHY, SCISSOR SISTERS frontman JAKE SHEARS and DIANE KRUGER), SABINA SCIUBBA, MELODY GARDOT and French-American singer, actress and model ARIELLE DOMBASLE (whose gothic candle with tuberose and musk notes were inspired by her album GLAMOUR À MORT). 

He's also produced a series of essential, soothing and hedonistic CALMING PARK compilations featuring tracks from GOLDFRAPP, AMY WINEHOUSE, THE BIRD AND THE BEE, SIA, CIBELLE, FEIST, GOTAN PROJECT, JORI HULKKONEN, SUZANNE VEGA and many more.

Starting June 2011, ROHRBACH will create a two hour CALMING PARK music channel for SWISS Air Lines which will be available on every SWISS flight.
