Inspired by the psyche of Oscar Wilde: A melancholy fragrance eliciting hypnotic notes of camphor and bergamot wrapped in a melody of warm oak, vanilla and patchouli, with a hint of cedar.
Mr. Wilde, a celebrated intellect was known for his flamboyant dress and biting wit; he was always the life of the party and loved to dance and listen to music. In fact, Oscar became one of the most celebrated personalities of his day. His contagious and warm personality was no match for the law, and he was convicted for "immoral" (homosexual) behavior, and was sentenced and imprisoned to two years hard labor. It was there he wrote his last work, The Ballad of Reading Gaol, a lengthy poem echoing his experiences in prison. He died in Paris, impoverished, at the age of 46.
Memoirs: The Memoirs Collection is inspired by vivacious writers of the past, and their lively environments at the time of their existence. Each candle evokes the essence of each fallen author’s world, all the while memorializing the aroma of their time.
