Moby Dick - Scented Book Candle
This literary candle has been inspired by a wise, and funny, Herman Melville's epic work whose genius was only recognized long after its author was dead.
The Forbidden Seas scent has sweet yet salty oceanic accords that are combined with an undercurrent of amber and vanilla.
Dangerous and mysterious, forbidden seas attract the bravest of us. What is hidden in its shadowy waters? “I love to sail forbidden seas, and land on barbarous coasts”.
Moby-Dick is a book you come back to, again and again, to find new treasures and delights, a storehouse of language, incident, and strange wisdom.
Its celebrated opening line "Call me Ishmael" takes the reader into the narrator's search for the meaning of the "damp, drizzly November of my soul".
We chose a lovely example of the cover of the first edition of Melville's classic illustrated by Rockwell Kent, published in 1930.
