Tuberose Jasmine Candle
“I love [tuberose] because it’s deceptive.
You think she’s innocent, but she’s not. She’s dangerous.”*
In the language of flowers Tuberose (Polianthes tuberosa) is the queen of forbidden pleasure and we could not think of a more perfect scent for our first candle. Let the sultry, exotic and rich scent of tuberose and night blooming jasmine center you in your own bliss.
Hand poured in small batches using phthalate free, natural essential oils and fragrance oils sourced from around the world. We use 100% domestically grown soy wax and cotton braided wicks primed with vegetable wax.
No synthetic fragrances, dyes, preservatives or wax additives.
The scent of tuberose is said to lend emotional strength and center the mind along with bringing serenity and peace. During the Renaissance, young ladies were forbidden to walk through the gardens at night because the alluring scent of tuberose was an intense aphrodisiac. In France, unmarried girls are warned to not inhale the scent after dark for fear it may lead to spontaneous orgasm.
Our 7.5 oz candle has an approximate burn time of 50 hours with proper care.
