Amira, the Queen of Candles in Marrakech

Amira Bougies is one of my favorite places to shop in Marrakech. As you enter their Sidi ghanem showroom no matter what time of day you are transported into a flickering candlelit colour Fantasia.

Its hard to believe that just above is the hubble and bubble of their candle factory, where everything on show is produced. Amira export these candles all over the world.


Using the best of Moroccan essential oils like rose,jasmine and orange blossom they create the perfumes emitted by the scented candles,stored in these adapted Moroccan tea glasess Amiria has created the perfect product to give any room atmosphere.

They also create design led shapes from wax, huge amphora’s that give off a subtle glow when filled with tea lights, Vases for flowers during the day and at night become candle holders, beautiful photophores that can throw streams of coloured light, candle holders that float on pools like luminous lily pads.

Amira is a great company to use if you are hosting an event, Amira can work with you to produce interesting and unusual ways of  mood lighting your parties.
