SCENT PROFILE: Honey Milk - Sweet Oats - Innocence
The Last Unicorn was one of my FAVORITE movies of all time growing up. This vintage take on the purest creature to ever roam the earth is my new personal favorite candle. With gentle scents of milk and honey, oats, and brown sugar -- this is the most comforting, innocent fragrance to burn year round when you need a little magic near.
About the art:
The Hunt of the Unicorn or the Unicorn Tapestries (French: La Chasse à la licorne) is a series of European tapestries dating from the late Middle Ages. This series of seven tapestries now in The Cloisters in New York was possibly made – or at least designed – in Paris at the turn of the sixteenth century. The tapestries were woven in wool, metallic threads, and silk. The vibrant colours, still evident today, were produced from dye plants: weld (yellow), madder (red), and woad (blue).
First recorded in 1680 in the Paris home of the Rochefoucauld family, the tapestries were looted at the French Revolution. Rediscovered in a barn in the 1850s, they were hung at the family's Château de Verteuil. Since then they have been the subject of intense scholarly debate about the meaning of their iconography, the identity of the artists who designed them, and the sequence in which they were meant to be hung. Although various theories have been put forward, as yet nothing is known of their early history or provenance, and their dramatic but conflicting narratives have inspired multiple readings, from chivalric to Christological. Variations in size, style, and composition suggest they come from more than one set linked by their subject matter, provenance, and the mysterious AE monogram which appears in each. One of the panels, "The Mystic Capture of the Unicorn", survives as just two fragments.
