Count of Monte Cristo - scented book candle
Scent: The Elixir
Size: 12.5 oz.
The Count of Monte Cristo is a historical adventure novel that delves deep into a world of treachery, revenge, mystery, and romance.
Written by Alexandre Dumas in 1844 and translated into English in 1846, this book cover depicts Edmond Dantès as he escapes the grim island fortress of Château d'If off Marseille after being falsely accused of treason, arrested, and imprisoned without a trial.
The Elixir Scent is inspired by this romantic tale of adventure as Edmond Dantès transforms into one of his multiple aliases such as Sinbad the Sailor, Lord Wilmore - the generous English nobleman, and of course, The Count of Monte Cristo as the vengeful and bitter man.
When you light this candle, you will be immersed in the aromas of waves crashing onto a rocky coastline with a storm brewing in the distance, while evoking the churn of the sea, the lapping of the water, and sand, and salt together into a clean and ozonic scent. Top notes of lemon, orange, and fresh ozone give way to a heart of briny sea salt and a hint of jasmine. Powder and light musk balance the woody violet and cedar in the base.
