The War of The Worlds - Scented Book Candle

  • $38.00

Scent: Another Invasion

Size: 12.5 oz


This hand-poured literary candle has been inspired by one of the earliest stories to detail a conflict between mankind and an extraterrestrial race.

H.G. Wells wrote the War of the Worlds between 1895 and 1897.

The Another Invasion scent smells of danger and victory. Hints of airy ozone and sandalwood round out this fresh fragrance. Hints of Amyris, musk, and moss complement the smokiness of this intensely earthy scent.

Long before Steven Spielberg made it into a movie and Tom Cruize starred in it, the War of the Worlds was influencing the greatest minds of our time: Robert H.Goddard, inspired by the book, invented both the liquid-fuelled rocket and multistage rocket, which resulted in the Apollo 11 Moon landing 71 years later.

"Yet across the gulf of space, minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us".

      Love everything about this candle!

      Not only is the scent of this candle very nice (not too overstated or cloying, but fills the room with a nice fragrance), but the jar is amazing. I keep mine up high above my computer desk, on top of the cabinet. As the flame has reduced the size of the candle, it gives the Martian craft and sky behind it an eerie lighting effect.
