Little Women - Scented Book Candle
Scent: Amy's Limes
Size: 12.5 oz.
Originally published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869, Louisa May Alcott’s novel about four sisters coming of age in the Civil War era has become a classic.
Over 150 years later it is capturing another generation of readers, thanks in part to a recent adaptation from director Greta Gerwig.
"If one girl likes another, she gives her a lime; if she’s mad with her, she eats one before her face, and doesn’t offer even a suck". It is intriguing to think of limes as a social metaphor for status and acceptance.
Amy's Limes scent is infused with Lime, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Orange, Tangerine, and Agave. It is sweet and citrusy. Light and happy.
The novel offers a rather unusual perspective - not all of it is about falling in love. The author tells a story about the ability to dream, and the importance of supporting each other. It seems like this book is a perfect read growing up.
Louisa May Alcott wrote the book at the request of her publisher. Little Women was an immediate commercial and critical success.
Favorite quote: “I want to do something splendid...something heroic or wonderful that won't be forgotten after I'm dead. I don't know what, but I'm on the watch for it and mean to astonish you all someday.”
