Made of ceramic, this Malus scented candle is hand filled with a proprietary wax blend, all natural essential oils fragranced by Swiss perfume house Givaudan and cotton wicks that offer a clean burn. A bold scented candle made to be put on display as a statement piece that offers aromatherapy.
Our Malus apple is inspired by Greek Mythology. It's a symbol of desire that sparked the Trojan war. The story goes as follows... Ever heard of the Judgement of Paris? Let me tell you about it.
Eris, the goddess of discord, not-invited to the wedding of Peleus and Thetis in fear of making the wedding unenjoyable for everyone, shows up unannounced with a golden apple from the Garden of the Hesperides which she throws in the ceremony as a prize of beauty, of course, causing a discord.
Three goddesses- Hera, Athena and Aphrodite- claim the apple, each offering a bribe to Paris, a mortal tasked with choosing one of the three to win the prize.
Aphrodite's bribe, which offered the love of Helen of Sparta, the wife of Greek king Menelaus and the most beautiful woman in the world, to Paris, takes the win. Off go Aphrodite and Paris to capture Helen from Menelaus.
With his wife missing, Menelaus declares a Trojan War. THE Trojan War, to get his wife back.
Inspired by this story, our Malus apple is a symbol of love and desire. Two things incomparable to any other emotion.
