A classic, aromatic lavender fragrance with supporting notes of eucalyptus and fresh rosemary, leading to a heart of geranium, white tea, cedar, and clary sage. All of this rests on a soothing base of soft patchouli, vanilla, and musks. A serene floral marine accord where seaweed and green algae lie in cool rock pools oxygenated by the ebb and flow of the tide whilst the coastal breeze meanders through hardy green florals and aged salt-encrusted driftwood.

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

Inspiration

Stokesay Castle, near Craven Arms, nestles in peaceful South Shropshire countryside near the Welsh Border.
Stokesay Castle is the finest and best preserved 13th century fortified Manor house in England. It offers visitors a unique glimpse into a distant age, when strength and elegance were combined.
Set amid peaceful countryside near the Welsh border, it forms an outstandingly picturesque group with its timber framed gatehouse and the parish church.
Lawrence of Ludlow, who made his fortune as a wool merchant and set up as a country gentleman, acquired the manor in 1281. Extensive recent tree-ring dating confirms that he had completed virtually the whole of the still-surviving buildings by 1291, the date of his ‘licence to crenellate’ from Edward I.
The dating also revealed that Stokesay’s magnificent open-hearthed great hall, with its fine cruck-built timber roof, shuttered gable windows and precipitous staircase, has scarcely been altered since it was built. The north tower displays an original medieval tiled roof and remains of wall painting, while the south tower, with fine views from its roof, contains a panelled solar chamber added in the 17th century. Its dominating feature is a fireplace with richly carved overmantel, still bearing clear traces of gold, pink, red, green and white painting.
Across the courtyard stands the truly delightful gatehouse, an elaborate example of the regional style of lavishly showy timber-framing, with charming carvings of Adam and Eve. This was built in  1640, a few years before Stokesay’s only known military encounter, when it surrendered without fighting during the Civil War.

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.
