We caught up with Enly Tammela, the leading fashion model and visionary founder behind the premium ENLY candle brand.

An established fashion model, represented by Women Management, Enly’s dedication to her craft keeps her name on everyone’s lips. A frequent figure in magazines, catalogues, and campaigns for distinguished multi-million dollar clients such as Ralph Lauren, Covergirl, Kenneth Cole, Chanel Beauty, Fausto Puglisi, Revlon, Vogue, Elle, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar and many more. Originally from Scandinavia, Enly has called New York City her home for the last decade.

My car of choice

I love big cars. I drive quite a bit in the city and having a big car just makes me feel safe. My choice of car is a Mercedes Benz G-Class. I do have a little crush on the convertible right now. It is also perfect for a little getaway and it is always fun to drive.

My favourite holiday destination 

My favourite destination for some time has been St Barths. However, recently I traveled to Turks and Caicos and fell in love with the Amanyara hotel. It was unbelievably beautiful with white sand, clear blue water and amazing service.

My gadget I can’t live without

I like to think that I can live without any gadget but if I had to pick one it would be my phone just because having a new business requires me to use my phone more than before. But I am definitely not a tech/gadget person, I love interacting with people in real life, and I rather not stare at my phone.

My go to fashion brand 

I go by ‘less is more’. I like minimalism with a playful twist. I am a big fan of Acne Studios. I love their quality and comfort that comes with a little kick of colour, texture and effortless look but still makes me feel sexy. My go to brand for essentials such as tank tops, t-shirts, perfect little black dresses and custom pieces is Travis Taddeo. I love supporting brands that have soul and authenticity.

My airline of choice

Honestly, I don’t like flying even though it has been a very big part of my whole life. As a model you just fly around so much. I think I have flown with Delta the most. My favourite flying experience is definitely a Blade seaplane to the Hamptons just because it’s short and sweet.

My favourite watch brand

I never thought that I would be into watches but I treated myself to a Rolex a few years ago and I have been wearing it ever since and I love it. So who knows, perhaps I am due for a new one. Something more feminine like gold Panthere de Cartier.

My favourite restaurant

No doubt Sant Ambroeus in Soho: morning, noon and night! I have been going there for so many years and have become very friendly with the team. I love the atmosphere, energy and of course the food. They always take good care of me and seat me and my pup Strawberry at my favourite table.

My guilty pleasure

A perfect glass of Beaujolais while watching Sex and the City.

My favourite way to give back

I love supporting local small businesses because they are the heart of what New York City is about. Through my business I plan on giving back to charities that are supporting children’s education and artistry.
