Mary - Trudon

Mary is a unique scented candle: it pays tribute to a modern icon, Mary Shelley, mother and author of Frankenstein, by recalling her name.
Iconoclast of her time, Mary Shelley denounced the values of a hypocritical English society of the 19th century.
An emancipated woman, she married a poet and together they traveled through Europe. Inevitably, Shelley fought the establishment and chose adventure as her guiding light.

Mary perfume is theatrical, with a luminous depth: floral and spicy notes of helichrysum, tuberose, star anise and cardamom suggest non-conformist journeys, which an intoxicating heart composed of patchouli, cedar, guaiac wood further transgresses.
Mary is a subversive fragrance: the testament of a rich inner life, it reveals the life of a cursed heroine.

In limited edition, the scented candle Mary is presented in a matte black glass, inside a box adorned with gold embossing: gothic illustrations by Lawrence Mynott depicting Mary Shelley holding an exquisite corpse. A drawing that alludes to her life as a visionary writer.
