A demonstration in luxury and artisan, hand-crafted work, Rathbornes is officially the oldest candle brand in the world. Rathbornes has been producing candles since 1488, even before Columbus discovered America, culminating in the beautifully formed products that exist today. Celebrating over six centuries of hand-crafting candles, the Beyond the Pale collection is comprised of six uniquely formulated scents that encapsulate the romance of the Irish landscape with a luxurious and modern edge.
Our favourite scent is the Dublin Tea Rose, Oud & Patchouli where Irish rosebuds blend with fresh citrus, vanilla, patchouli, oud and amber for a sweeping romantic experience. This candle brings with it the heat of a warm summer’s evening.
With four evenly distributed wicks to ensure the best possible burn, this candle has been hand poured in Dublin using traditional methods. The special beeswax blend is fragranced with premium essential oils for an unforgettable scent experience. Rathbornes craft their luxury scents to complement the home and indulge the senses, making them the perfect accompaniment to modern living. Made with techniques refined over six centuries, every aspect of this candle is given a touch of luxury.
Rathbornes Dublin Tea Rose, Oud & Patchouli costs £46 for 390g four wick candle with a burn time of 50 hours. Stockists include Fenwicks, Amara.com and Brown Thomas, Dublin and www.rathbornes1488.com.
