DNNA – Donna Vekic is a luxury home fragrance brand launched by tennis player Donna Vekic. Scented candles are Donna’s way of coping with the challenges off the court, which is how she came up with an idea for a line of fragrances with her signature, fragrances with Donna’s DNA, or DNNA as Bruketa&Zinic&Grey agency branded them.
Overall packaging evokes tennis associations – every vessel comes with a steel globe that can be used as a candle snuffer as well. The vessels are made of the highest quality Murano glass: handmade, blown, heated, cooled, personalized, and signed by master glassmaker Stefano Mettiello.
The DNNA scented candles and rooms sticks contain fragrance formulas created at the famous perfume creation center in Grasse, France by perfumer Arnaud Fourré. The fragrances are certified in accordance with the COSMOS-NATURAL standard, ensuring that the products are organic and natural. The candles are made from 100% natural wax from the Kopacki Rit Nature Park, Croatia, emitting negative ions to purify the air in the room. They contain an environmentally friendly paper wick instead of a lead core wick. The DNNA products emit naturally strong light of the spectrum identical to the sunlight.
Up to now, DNNA has won the second place in design at 2022 Dieline Awards, the world’s leading packaging design competition, and the Red Dot Award, one of the most sought-after international seals of quality for good design.
