Werther & Gray
MEMENTO MORI, Scented Candle, 8oz Jar
Memento Mori, a phrase used for centuries, translates from Latin as "Remember Death". The Victorians embraced death as a part of their culture, allowing it to find expression and importance in many aspects of life, from creative hairwork relics to post-mortem photography, and regulated mourning practices to a revolution in cemetery and burial design. White lilies are the ultimate funeral flower, originally used for their potent and intoxicating fragrance which helped mask the smell of decomposing bodies while attendees mourned. This candle is in remembrance of the way Victorians experienced death, and features a white lily and mahogany fragrance.
DARK SERIES: History's shadows are highlighted in this series of night creatures, madmen, murderers, and the supernatural. Great autumn scents for Halloween, or any time of the year for those attracted to the dark side.
FRAGRANCE: White Lily & Mahogany
