Salopesberia - Woodland Walk Scented Luxury Soy Candle (250ml)
An intensely rich and full aroma with top notes of bergamot, lemon, and eucalyptus, leading to a heart of warm spice and lavender supported by a base of brown leaves, damp earth, amber, sandalwood, cedarwood, patchouli, moss, and woody musks.
This amazingly scented candle burns for approximately 35 hours and has a strong scent throw that will fully fragrance an average-sized room.
The origin of the name "Shropshire" is the Old English "Scrobbesbyrigscīr" (literally Shrewsburyshire), perhaps taking its name from Richard Scrob (or FitzScrob or Scrope), the builder of Richard's Castle near what is now the town of Ludlow. However, the Normans who ruled England after 1066 found both "Scrobbesbyrig" and "Scrobbesbyrigscir" difficult to pronounce so they softened them to "Salopesberia" and "Salopescira". Salop is the abbreviation of these. The term "Salopian", derived from "Salop", is still used to mean "from Shropshire".
When a council for the county was set up in 1888, it was called "Salop County Council". The name was never popular, with LudlowM P Sir Jasper Moore raising an amendment to the 1972 Local Government Bill to rename the county "Shropshire" - at the time the council itself opposed the change, although later, in 1980, would exercise its power to legally change the name of the county. Another reason why Salop was unfavourable was the fact that if you add the letter 'E' and make it Salope, this is a French word which means 'Bitch' or 'Loose Woman'
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.
