Old King Henry's last queen and the most reluctant of the batch. She was a smart and wily lady who eventually married her true love Thomas Seymour, only to lose his heart and fidelity to the wiles of her stepdaughter...Princess Elizabeth. The very same Elizabeth who would become Elizabeth I. Rumour has it that he was the first man to bed the "Virgin Queen" when she was but a very young teenager. It is also said that the finding out of their affair is what drove Katherine Parr into labour and endangered her life.
Our Lady Parr would ultimately die of complications of childbirth and a broken heart.
The scent: Ripe, lush bramble berries and wild Scottish raspberries with hints of pink pepper, clove and amber. Soft notes of vanilla, galbanum, and white jasmine round out this passionate blend. The scent of lost love.
These beautiful apothecary amber glass jar candles hearken back to the days of those mysterious and magical Victorian chemists. Where all sorts of potions, natural remedies, exotic balms, and downright snake oils were sold from antique wood and glass cabinets, and the glow of coloured blown glass jars gave an atmosphere of their own.
These candles glow with a warming ambiance once they are lit and burn for 30 to 35 hours each. When not in use they have a simple black urea lid to keep them dust free and prolong the life of the wax. We use a 100% natural and vegan blend of wax with a mixture of soy, rapeseed, plant waxes, and coconut. This gives you a nice clean burn.
The candles are very concentrated and hand-blended fragrances and hand-poured with a whopping 7 to 10% pure fragrance. This is the same amount your high-end expensive French brands use for maximum scent throw.
We also use cotton lead-free wicks that will not give off harmful fumes or hidden particles when burned.
Directions for Use:
Please trim wick before lighting and burn for at least 3 hours or until the candle has reached a full burn pool to get the most out of your candle. Never extinguish a candle before full wax pool has been reached if possible. This will help to avoid tunnelling in the candle and give you the maximum life.
About Tudor Rose Bathery:
Our Tudor Rose Bathery collection is one that was always done exclusively at our retail shop and has never before been offered to our stockists.
This collection is inspired and many times 'borrowed' from the ancient formulae collected from centuries of knowledge. Our own chemist has spent years indulging her passion for researching original formulations and scent blends. This often includes spending days translating texts in Middle English and Latin. The end result is a completely original and magical collection that makes it way into the hearts of all lovers of the unique, mysterious, and magical.
With these, your best value is to buy them per dozen at £6.75 each but you can also buy them singly to try out at our retail price of £17.00.
Please note that these candles are made to order and cannot be rushed as the wax does need to cure a few days to develop the scent fully before they are ready to burn and can be shipped to you. Because of this there is a 10-14 day lead automatically added. Some times of the year this can be even more but 10-14 is an average.
If you order bath products at the same time, whichever has the greater lead time will apply to your order.
