Orangery  Candle

Orangery Candle

Regular price $25.00 Sale

The orangery - later to become the greenhouse or conservatory,  was originally a heated building within the gardens of fashionable Irish residences. It was a place to protect and cultivate delicate citrus trees over cold winter months,  hence the name, along with exotic fruits such as pineapples, figs and cherries. Often an architectural gem and quite a status symbol among wealthy house owners, it was occasionally used to entertain guests during inclement weather. This lovely candle is also a gem, exuding a mildly exotic air of tranquility and the outdoors, through its heady blend of fig, orange blossom and jasmine.
