The Dorian Gray scented candle in white is inspired by Oscar Wilde's only novel, which is considered by many to be his finest work.
The Picture of Dorian Gray was first published in 1890, in a magazine whose editor, worried it was indecent, cut about five hundred words from it without informing its author, Oscar Wilde.
Wilde insists in his Preface, "There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written or badly written. That's all."
When critics attacked the work for its immorality, Wilde responded, "Leave my book, I beg you, to the immortality that it deserves".
Remember the first sentence? "The studio was filled with the rich odor of roses, and when the light summer wind stirred amidst the trees of the garden, there came through the open door the heavy scent of the lilac or the more delicate perfume of the pink-flowering thorn." That's where the inspiration for our Dorian Gray candle scent came from.
