PRODUCT DETAILS

A pure vegan-friendly soy wax candle, scented with carefully selected fragrance oils designed to bring to life Ophelia's beautiful scented flowers.

Hamlet and Ophelia's relationship is a complicated one to say the least!

They were very much in love, but Hamlet's behavior towards her changed drastically after his father's death. He becomes distant and accusatory of her, even going so far as to accuse her of being a "breeder of sinners." 

Hamlet was conflicted throughout this tragic play, between his love for Ophelia and the demands placed on him by fate to seek revenge against Claudius. Despite all of this, it seems that he still loved her deeply as was evident by his grief after she dies. 

Inspired by the flowers and herbs that Ophelia is most associated with in the play, this complex herbal and flora blend is tumultuous and changing when burning, just as Hamlet and Ophelia’s relationship.

Opening on verdant, camphoreous rosemary, the bitter orange heart notes of rue are soothed with neroli before finishing sweetly on a base of violet petals.

 

This candle is made with a wooden wick, which quietly crackles adding to the experience.

Hand poured 200ml pure soy wax - burns for approx 35-40 hours
