Divorced | Beheaded | Died | Divorced | Beheaded | Survived
The Tudor Roses collection is a one-of-a-kind ode to the six women who Henry VIII infamously took as his brides. Though these women have one husband in common, our candle homage is intended to evoke the history of these fascinating women through sensory storytelling. Each scent is artfully designed to reflect the life, history and heritage of each queen.
No. 1, Catherine of Aragon: The Spanish Princess is embodied by juicy pomegranate, a tribute to the pomegranate on her badge. Floral notes of iris and bergamot round out this intoxicating scent.
No. 2, Anne Boleyn: The first wife to receive an unjust fate, red roses and violets represent Anne Boleyn’s crest.
No. 3, Jane Seymour: As the only queen who bore a surviving male heir, Jane Seymour was known as Henry’s favorite wife. To evoke the phoenix on her crest, this candle is a citrusy blend of orange peel, lemon zest, and sweet peach.
No. 4, Anne of Cleves: Primary sources indicate that Anne of Cleves was known as “gentle, virtuous, and docile”. Her scent is a sweet and feminine French lilac, lily of the valley, and amyris.
No. 5, Catherine Howard: Like Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard too fell victim to the axe. Notes of elderflower and apple blossom capture Catherine’s “vivacious, giggly and brisk” personality.
No. 6, Catherine Parr: Catherine Parr, the only queen to outlive Henry, was also the first woman in England to have a book published under her own name! To honor her noble legacy, this scent is reminiscent of leatherbound books in a dusty library.
Each candle holds 2oz of wax and will last about 15 hours. Small candles can be used anywhere but are best suited for small spaces like bathrooms, bedrooms and offices.
