The scent of orange blossom and snapped green stems evoke the languorous perfume of the bitter orange tree in bloom. A Spanish idyll described in notes of petitgrain, neroli, ylang, orange blossom, and rose, this candle is in fact named after the iconic Spanish Arch in the Latin quarter of Galway, Ireland.
Built in 1584, the arch was a toll-point for Spanish merchants bringing goods into the city. Imagining the smells that these Spaniards would be familiar with, this candle brings together in present memory the lines of history that link the Galwegians to the Spanish. Thickly rimmed mouth-blown glass is finished with a hand-applied silver opaque finish for a beautiful glow.
Candle weighs 280g with burn time 55-60 hours.
