Our perfumers have recreated this zesty fragrance with top notes of rhubarb and rose . The scent gives way to softer middle notes of grapefruit and lemongrass with a base of vanilla and musk.

This amazingly scented candle burns for approximately 35 hours and has a strong scent throw that will fully fragrance an average-sized room.

Inspiration

Apley Hall has a wealth of history. A home has existed on the site as early as the 13th century. In 1551 Sir Thomas Lucy (Shakespeare's magistrate) sold the Apley Estate to the royalist Whitmore family with close links to Charles I. Indeed it is reported that Charles I said of Bridgnorth, “The finest view in all my Kingdom”. Apley Hall was commissioned by Thomas Whitmore in 1811 just after the Napoleonic Wars and was designed to emulate a romantic castle overlooking the River Severn.

In 1867 the Hall was sold to the heir and nephew of James Foster, a wealthy ironmaster who employed 7000 men making nails in Stourbridge. In 1896 the parents of P.G. Wodehouse moved from Surrey to Shropshire and became regular visitors at Apley Hall and it is believed to be the inspiration behind P.G. Wodehouse's famous novel, Blandings Castle, and locals surmise that the low walled enclosure at the western end of the stable courtyards at Apley was the fictional home of the Empress. The author died in 1975 aged 93 and wrote that his “Happiest days as a boy were spent near Bridgnorth”.

Safety

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Burn candles out of reach of children and pets. Always leave about 10cm between burning candles. Do not burn candles on or near anything that may catch fire. Only burn this candle on a level, heat-resistant surface. 

Never burn this candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Do not allow the flame to touch the glass. On the first burn, always burn for 3-4 hours to ensure an even melt pool. Ensure the wick is upright, above the wax, and central before the wax sets. Always trim the wick to 5mm before lighting to avoid smoking and damage to the glass. Glass may become hot during use. Extinguish when 5mm of wax remains and do not relight.
