Clink 1144 Baroque Candle
Every city has a dark side... and some are much darker than others. London has been described as "a spectral city, so filled with imitations of its past that it haunts its own inhabitants".
From the toturous Tower of London to the vampire-crazed digging up of Highgate Cemetery, there are endless tales of spirits and specters eminating from the Big Smoke.
Whilst re-visiting my birthplace and thinking about the new collection I'd been working on, it seemed fitting that I paid homage to my hometown and the macabre history it holds. 💀
Built in 1144 (hence the name), The Clink is England's oldest and most notorious medieval prison.
Before it was burnt down in 1780 it housed prisoners for over 600 years (including traitors to the crown - most notably against Bloody Mary) many who didn't survive the appalling conditions they were being kept in.
The Clink is known as a hot spot for paranormal activity and regular ghost hunting, vigils and séance's take place here to contact those past.
The Clink 1144 baroque candle is scented with sandalwood and notes of musk. A captivating and truly haunting scent.
No two baroque candles are the same. As each candle is handmade there might be some small beautiful imperfections and this will vary from candle to candle.
Made with 100% coconut wax each candle is of course vegan, incuding our braided cotton wicks.

Not only does Clink 1144 look absolutely stunning and an absolute statement but it also smells divine!
Really captures the feeling of sitting in an old pub as the light fades. Beautiful design. I can wait to try more in this range.
