Shield Candle | The Society Inc
This candle is housed in a beautiful crafted porcelain shield vessel with a hand-tinkered zinc lid, made to be kept and later used for jewellery, trinkets or loose change.
Sibella of The Society Inc inherited a corked glass vial from my great-grandmother which still had remnants of its original tattered label reading Attar of Rose. The scent still vivid & intoxicating with its origins from the fresh petals of Rosa Damascena which led her on a journey to Syria to seek out the historical heavenly scent in the ancient spice markets of Damascus and recreate it for this beautiful candle.
A perfect gift that travels well and continues to give after its contents have long gone.
A secret message is revealed as the wax becomes translucent!
