Little Women literary candle is available in Amy's Limes scent as well as our signature library scent.
Originally published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869, Louisa May Alcott's novel about four sisters coming of age in the Civil War era has become a classic. Over 150 years later it is capturing another generation of readers, thanks in part to a recent adaptation from director Greta Gerwig.
"If one girl likes another, she gives her a lime; if she's mad with her, she eats one before her face, and doesn't offer even a suck". It is intriguing to think of limes as a social metaphor for status and acceptance.
The novel offers a rather unusual perspective - not all of it is about falling in love. The author tells a story about the ability to dream, and the importance of supporting each other. It seems like this book is a perfect read growing up. Louisa May Alcott wrote the book at the request of her publisher. Little Women was an immediate commercial and critical success.
Favorite quote: "I want to do something splendid...something heroic or wonderful that won't be forgotten after I'm dead. I don't know what, but I'm on the watch for it and mean to astonish you all someday."
