Information

Funny name but very much a real and beloved sweet from Medieval times. This was the ultimate in comfort food and the scent is just as decadent.

The scent: Sweet thick creamy custard that is thick enough to pour but thin enough to drink, not unlike eggnog but without boozy notes, This is a medley of sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, a touch of honey, and caramel all in one.

A 15th century favourite, that was served with stewed fruit or as a hot warming drink.

"Take the whyte of Eyroun a grete hepe, and putte it on a panne ful of Mylke, and let yt boyle; then sesyn it so with Salt an hony a lytel, then lat hit kele, and draw it thorw a straynoure, an take fayre Cowe mylke an draw yt with-all, and seson it with Sugre, and loke that it be poynant and doucet: and serue it forth for a potage, or for a gode Bakyn mete, wheder that thou wolt."

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.
