Dark Academia

SCENT PROFILE: Ambergris - Limoncello - Ink Stains

“Some things are too terrible to grasp at once. Other things - naked, sputtering, indelible in their horror - are too terrible to really grasp ever at all. It is only later, in solitude, in memory that the realization dawns: when the ashes are cold; when the mourners have departed; when one looks around and finds oneself - quite to one's surprise - in an entirely different world.” ― Donna Tart, The Secret History

When anyone ever mentions dark academia to me, my mind immediately conjures visions of Oxford College, ink stained fingers, Italian cafes serving limoncello alongside espresso…. and stacks of books so high and dark I could drown in them. Whiskey in teacups, houndstooth blazers, and poetry at midnight. Light this candle for scents of otherworldly ambergris (think sweet earth with an inexplicable depth), paired with bright limoncello and a hint of tobacco sugar for this unusual and addictively beautiful candle. 

Candle in simple and smooth black wax.
