Anna Karenina - Scented Book Candle
Scent: Pursuit of Desire
Size: 12.5 oz.
Anna Karenina literary candle has been inspired by Leo Tolstoy's timeless classic.
Tolstoy called it his first true novel.
It's been said that the plot was inspired by the story of a real woman. Anna Stepanovna Pirogova was the mistress of one of Tolstoy's friends. When she learned her lover had been neglecting her for his children's German governess, she ran away and wandered about the countryside for days.
Romantic and tragic, this is a story of a woman in pursuit of desire.
The scent starts with top notes of apple, luscious peach, and ripe grapefruit that give way to beautiful middle notes of cherry blossom and hydrangea. The vanilla and hint of powder in the base balance the sweetness of the fragrance.
