La Rose aime le Poivre - Love is a Rose Candle
Protected by an antique pink mat glass, Damascus Rose and pepper passionately go up in flames. ‘Queen of flowers’ originally from Turkey, the Damascus Rose has been praised since Antiquity for the finesse of its scent and elegance. Historically celebrated from China to Persia, rose is a divine symbol. Equally rare and noble, pepper has been traded since Antiquity: a scarce commodity, it was used as a currency and is even mentioned in Roman figure Apicius’ book “De re culinarian libri”.
In between the two families - Rosaceae and Piperaceae – there is no love lost. When cold, the fierceness of the peppercorn takes over and when warm, the soft perfume of rose is elegantly spiced up.
Pepper is known for its intense taste and stimulating medicinal properties. Similarily to its lover, the rose has been celebrated since ancient time for its stimulating power and aphrodisiac properties. Together they're known to help:
✓ Overcome anxiety, tension and sleep disorders,
✓ Soothe the nervous system and encourage letting go,
✓ Naturally stimulate, energize and invigorate.
