Ask a question

"Bittersweet", soy wax candle, was born thinking about a not too far time ... spent in the warm and passional Sicily's heart.
My old diary pages, dusty and yellowed, brought me back to stroll in the scented garden of a sumptuous villa in Palermo.

"...Sunshine's blade filtered by the branches and brightened their smiles, while in my mouth sweet orange juice was mixed with bitter almond taste, in a perfect union. And in that moment, I realized that bittersweet melancholy vein would accompany their lives forever."

The liquid and steaming wax spreads its bitter-sweet aroma in the air, while it's resting in the glass jar.
Seems to whisper sweet words in Sicilian dialect, perhaps to remind me who I was and what I did in those days.

The orange sweetness embrces the pungent heart of almond oil, and gives to the candle a wonderful romantic and melancholic fragrance .

"Bittersweet" is a hymn to the soul's sweetness, a purity's bow, a look at the good times that were.

If you love citrusy fragrance , I also created "Citrus" couple of medium candles: lime and bergamot.

I will wrap your natural candle in soft ivory paper, I'll put in a cardboard nest and before affix my seal with wax ...
I'll make you a gift.
Inside the box you will find my diary page ... where I'll tell you how I met two small Sicilian Children destined to do great things.

Elegant and simple square glass jar.
