The Mary candle is a deep and evocative softly spiced wood candle, named after write Mary Shelly, the mother and author of Frankenstein. Mary pays tribute to a modern icon. An iconoclast of her time, the 19th Century, she denounces the values of a self righteous English society. Emancipated, Mary Shelley marries a poet: together they travel across Europe. Mary Shelley lived a life tinted with gothic drama, sadness and melancholia, but also with an audaciousness, risk taking and romance. Her writings, travels, personality and era are the inspiration for the scent of ‘Mary’.
The Mary candle perfume is theatrical, with a luminous depth: floral and spicy notes of immortelle, tuberose, star anise and cardamom with a heady heart of Rockrose, Cedarwood, Guaiac Wood. The base comprises of Amber, Incense, Patchouli & Moss.
This Limited Edition candle comes in a matte glass vessel with gold embossed sticker. The matt black box is adorned with an illustration by Lawrence Mynott of Mary holding a cadavre. A drawing that celebrates her life as a visionary female writer.
